The Qatar Foundation International (QFI) will be launching a new website for Arabic K-12 teachers at the upcoming ACTFL conference taking place from Nov. 22-24 in Orlando, FL called Al-Masdar (http://almasdar.oercommons.org ). Al-Masdar provides a platform for you to discover free resources through search strategies, to author or upload your own resources, to review resources, join groups and conversations, and collaborate with others. The site is intended to be a hub - the source - for language teaching materials, opportunities, news and events relevant to Arabic instructors.
You are invited to explore Al-Masdar and offer your feedback by completing this survey: http://bit.ly/1gvdkWS
QFI will be hosting a free Al-Masdar training workshop for Arabic teachers from 9am-12pm on Sunday, Nov. 24 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando. Please RSVP for the workshop by replying to almasdar at classroad dot com
