LFO for NC


The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) is looking for teachers and students to take part in an extended pilot of LinguaFolio Online (LFO) for NC, an updated version of e-LinguaFolio. LFO for NC was built by the Title VI Language Resource Center at the University of Oregon, the Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS), and is the online version for LinguaFolio for our state's language programs.


Note: LinguaFolio is also available for free in Word and PDF documents for those who want to use those versions on the classroom materials pages for ESL LinguaFolio and World Languages LinguaFolio.

Applications to be part of this year's piloting of LFO for NC have been submitted. Teachers from districts and charter schools in the extended LFO for NC Pilot will receive FREE accounts for themselves and their students to use in the 2018-2019 school year and beyond.


Teachers selected for the pilot will need to:

  • Have completed LinguaFolio training, either previously or through a self-paced Canvas course that is part of this initiative;

  • Participate in 1 - 3 webinars, which will be conducted after school; and

  • Provide feedback throughout the pilot via emails, online surveys, virtual networking, and so on.


Pilot activities like training, webinars and feedback will be documented as contact hours towards a CEU for license renewal.

  • the English Language Development Standards (WIDA) or

  • the World Language Essential Standards are invited to apply.



As part of the launch of LinguaFolio and the LFO for NC pilot, NCDPI hosted an Overview of LinguaFolio webinar on Monday, September 24, from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Please see the details in the Google slides or watch the recording on the World Languages playlist on the NCDPI YouTube channel.

Teachers who apply will be notified in early December about their status, and those selected for the LFO for NC Pilot will be provided details at that time.
