Interactive Distance Learning Programs (Videoconferenced Instruction)
“Students and teachers see and hear each other and interact almost as if they were in the same classroom."
Students at participating schools connect with native speaker instructors at CIKU via videoconferencing. This allows for live, real-time interaction. Students and teachers see and hear each other and interact almost as if they were in the same classroom. Most connections with schools are set-up through cloud-based platforms such as Zoom. Current cloud-based technology allows schools to offer strategic languages to students without having to purchase expensive equipment.
CIKU instructors use this technology to instruct students at K-12 schools across the region. CIKU Chinese Instructors are experienced in teaching by videoconferencing and have learned to adapt best practices in foreign language instruction to this context. This program allows students in small towns and other areas where Chinese teachers are not available to gain access to this critical language.
