Students at Spartanburg High School recently received Apple MacBooks for use in the classroom. The goal of this project was to come up with short supplementary materials using this new technology to build German listening and speaking skills, as well as cultural competency. The hope was that incorporating technology would hold the interest of the students and provide new opportunities for instruction for the teacher. It was also hoped that the activities created would bring German culture to life for the students. The activities are divided into 4 sections: Nachrichten, Lieder, Jojo sucht das Glück, and Films & Märchen. Each folder contains an information page explaining the contents.
