Global Learning with Linguameeting Abstract: This presentation discusses a new classroom approach to cultural learning with the use of technology and video conversations in an advanced Spanish course. Incorporating this type of learning allows for cross cultural experience and inclusion of the native language. During the course, Spanish History and Telenovela, the students also engaged in video conversation sessions with a native speaker using a program called Linguameeting. During each session, the coach would review information that was studied during the prior week with the students by asking questions and reviewing answers in the native language. This would allow the students to not only learn the subject matter, but bring each student closer to a project-based learning and expose them to cultural aspects since many cannot not physically travel abroad. These coaches would include personal accounts and information that perhaps were not addressed in class. Students responded to a post survey about the incorporation of Linguameeting in the course. Survey results support the outcome and the benefits of the use of Linguameeting for expanded “global learning” with hopes that this new approach to technology and video conversation will expand.
