    LinguaFolio

    LinguaFolio® is a proficiency-based, learner-centered, formative assessment tool that:
    ● empowers learners to manage their own language learning,
    ● provides a place for learners to collect evidence showing their growth, and

    LinguaFolio®, developed by members of the National Council of State Supervisors for Languages (NCSSFL), is based on the European Language Portfolio (ELP) and the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements. The Can-Do statements are organized according to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency levels and sublevels. LinguaFolio® relates to proficiency scales from other organizations, such as the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) and the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

  • Technology Integration Matrix - TIM

    Technology Integration Matrix

    "The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative(Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments."

    The TIM website provides resources organized by grade level and by the type of digital tool.
