Dear Faculty, Lecturers and TAs,

Do you have a project in mind but aren’t sure how to make it work? Is there a technology that you’d like to learn more about or possibly use in your course? The LCLC is here to help! We have tech tools for every kind of project - in any kind of class from beginning language to advanced graduate - and can help you find the best way to integrate them effectively and meaningfully into your teaching. Email us at lclc@uic.edu with all your questions!

A teaching with technology tip of the week:

Unfiltered News

Unfiltered News is a global news website that lets you see what the world is talking about. The site gives you a map of the world and shows you what topics are trending in each country's news. Clicking on a keyword rearranges the map to highlight where that topic is most popular by resizing countries. You can also search to see what countries are talking about the topic you're interested in.

Selecting or searching for a topic also produces a list of related headlines from around the globe organized by country. Headlines can be clicked on to jump to the original news source - reputable publications, including most major national news outlets from each country - in its original language.

Unfiltered News also features an interactive timeline that allows you to explore how news topic trends change over time. 

This is a great way to encourage students to keep up with what's going on in both the US and in their target culture(s) and to help them make connections between their culture and the culture they're learning about. It's also a great resource for students to use for current event research projects.

UIC LCLC social media! Encourage your students and colleagues to check out the UIC Language and Culture Learning Center Facebook page and Instagram and Twitter feeds. Stay up-to-date with LCLC happenings. Promoting our pages is a good way to ensure your students know about your conversation hour or film series.

This Week's Featured Chicago-Area Cultural Event

Tornaveus [Concert] - WEDNESDAY, May 1st, 8:30PM
Labor songs, lullabies, drum songs, carols, naughty songs, nursery rhymes, and even tavern songs—Tornaveus conjures a surround sound experience created exclusively with voices. Vocal music has always been a rich local tradition among men and women in the Northwestern Mediterranean region, and Tornaveus are some of the finest purveyors of the form.
Location: Old Town School of Folk Music (Chicago), 4544 N. Lincoln avenue, Chicago, IL 60625
