The West Virginia Virtual School Spanish Middle School Spanish uses content housed on our e-learning platform, West Virginia Learns. Asynchronous voice capabilities are possible through the Horizon-Wimba Language Suite Tools. Synchronous language practice is possible through weekly conference calls to the classroom. Additional on-line practice activities are embedded in the expanded task-specific ancillary materials developed by the online teachers.
The researchers studied the use of these tools and their effectiveness in delivering instruction to the middle school students.
