An Interactive Digital Reader and Grammar for Elementary Tamil
Web

Description

The current project comprises the first of four phases envisioned in creating a comprehensive and interactive digital reader and grammar for Tamil learning. The fist phase is an interactive reader and grammar for Elementary Tamil to be delivered in three media namely Web, CD ROM (with Windows software), and Printed Book. The second, third and fourth phase of this project will develop similar materials for intermediate, advanced and superior levels of Tamil. The CD ROM and Web formats will be enhanced with interactive multimedia components including audio, video, pictures and interactive exercises. Overall, a multimedia enhanced instructional material will be targeted to provide students an opportunity for "learning by doing" by implementing the feature of interactivity as much as possible. The web materials will be developed in such a way that an online interaction among the Tamil students from other institutions is carried out in a collaborative manner. The CD ROM medium will be sought for the use of audio and video materials more effectively than the web medium, which would require high bandwidth to deliver them.

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
