Faculty/Staff Detail

Robert Ponterio, Modern Languages Department, presented a session titled “Make Web Materials Work on Student Smart Phones” at the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers’ NYSAFLT Annual Convention on Oct. 11 in Buffalo, N.Y. The session examined the basic techniques of Responsive Design for adjusting Web page text size, images, columns and video to display on desktop, tablet and smartphone media. Templates were provided to simplify converting existing class materials to an HTML5 format with built-in responsive style elements to make the process easier for teachers with limited Web development skills. All presentation materials and templates are available online at web.cortland.edu/flteach/wksp/nysaflt2013.html.
