DC Immersion is working on a resource for parents and teachers in the form of a web-based “go-to” calendar for all language and culture related events in the DC region. The calendar is geared towards school aged children in the four languages (mandarin, spanish, french, hebrew) currently available in DC’s dual language programs.
The aim is to have a centralized calendar where cultural institutes, organizations, parents and school administrators can add relevant events, and parents and teachers can easily search for them. The calendar entries will be moderated to ensure that only relevant, student appropriate content makes it into the calendar, and there is no overcrowding.
DC Immersion in beta testing the calendar and obtaining feedback on what would make it most user friendly and useful for teachers and parents. Watch this space!
