Talking Dictionaries for Indigenous Languages

Description: This workshop will provide technology training and a hands-on tutorial in the software used for dictionary making. Participants will learn the freely available Fieldworks Language Explorer software, and they will leave the workshop with a starter kit talking dictionary of their language which they can expand on their own by adding words, sentences, pictures, movies and sound. If there is interest, we will also work with those dictionary products to show participants how they can create a lesson plans for teaching their language back home in their communities. We have taught this dictionary software at many Indigenous language workshops, and we will have assistants on hand to assist learners. We also have computers available for learners to use.
