Blankenship reports on UCLA Language Materials Project

At the April conference of the Southwest Association for Language Learning Technology, Barbara Blankenship (Ph.D. 1997) presented a talk on digital materials for language learning. Blankenship coordinates the UCLA Language Materials Project, a website with resources for teachers of less commonly taught languages. The site offers a bibliography of over 9000 materials for teaching 150 languages, language profiles with  maps and demographics, and a portal for K-12 teachers that provides free lesson plans for an entire year’s curriculum. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s International Research and Studies program, the site receives 10,000 visitors a month at http://www.lmp.ucla.edu.
