Abstract/摘要:

This paper reports on the effective incorporation of online technology tools in the University of Virginia’s STARTALK Chinese Student Program. These tools contributed most importantly to the interactive component of online Chinese language classrooms, which can otherwise be absent or minimal. In 2018 the Virginia STARTALK program created a streamlined online learning process, organically strengthened by the combination of the online platform ZOOM and the teaching interactive software Nearpod, whose features include annotation, real-time testing, and online synchronization cooperation. These classroom activities were designed to fulfill specific learning objectives, achieve optimal language output, and enhance student learning efficiency and engagement. The application of technology tools has effectively strengthened online interactions between instructor and learners, thereby promoting more effective language learning and improving student satisfaction with the course.

本篇论文旨在报告2018年美国弗吉尼亚大学星谈中文项目中线上科技辅助工具的有效结合与应用及其对网络中文课堂互动性的促进作用。弗吉尼亚星谈项目于2018年首次在网络中文课堂的教学过程中,有机结合在线视频工具ZOOM和教学互动软件Nearpod的各项功能,例如标注、即时测试、在线同步合作等,针对具体语言教学目标设计课堂活动,优化了学生在课堂中的语言输出,增强了学生学习的效率和趣味性,弥补了线上教学互动性不足的缺陷。根据项目的后期反馈,科技工具的应用有效地促进了学生的学习效果,提高了学生对课程的满意度。
