6:30 am Rosetta Stone
My biggest tech-related goal in the past few weeks has been to launch our online Rosetta Stone subscriptions and start getting some feedback from teachers and students about the program. We currently have 28 learners enrolled, with more pending. We are primarily targeting students who are currently enrolled in language classes and who need remediation. We’ve also signed up a few students who have a semester off from their language learning due to our block schedule, a few very high-achieving students who need an extra challenge, and one student who felt it could help him with his Capstone. This number also includes a few of our language teachers who are trying the program out as students themselves.
The feedback I’ve heard from my French students who have used is so far is positive: they have found it to be fun. I personally agree: it feels very fun and engaging, almost like a video game, and I love the immersion approach of Rosetta Stone. I’m very excited about the potential for this tool in our language program.
I am appreciative of the Learning Center for getting themselves equipped with headsets so that student who don’t have access at home will be able to use Rosetta Stone on campus.
I especially like the detailed reports RS generates on each student’s progress. It is easy to monitor how much time a student has devoted to the program.
I’d love to hear from other teachers and schools who have supplemented their language programs with Rosetta Stone, and to hear about their experiences.
