Welcome to the NOVASTARTALK website, an online resource that supports workshops and webinars designed to help teachers use technology tools and 21st century language pedagogy in the official STARTALK languages. In the face-to-face program, teachers of less-commonly-taught languages (Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Hindi, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu) create technology-enhanced activities to expand the curriculum presently in place in their schools. The STARTALK teachers typically work in teams during the workshops and continue to collaborate during the school year at conferences, through the use of wikis and blogs, and here on our website. Since its inception in 2006, the networking that has resulted from this program has enriched instruction and created a bond between teachers in and out of our face-to-face STARTALK setting.
