The Vernon Hills High School World Languages Lab utilizes the SANS/Sony Virtuoso™ Instructional Control software, along with the Soloist™ Digital PC Comparative Recorder software, providing a fully digital software-based language learning environment. This software runs on networked Windows®-based PCs. This fully digital system uses audio, video, text and other lesson materials that are stored digitally on computers. The system allows lesson transmitting to student’s real time over the PC network. Teachers listen to and record students, allowing them to monitor activities while providing students with feedback about their pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar usage. In this learning environment, students participate in pairs or groups to share information, collaborate on projects and assignments, and have more opportunity to speak in the target language and listen to authentic text passages in the target language.
