Empowering World Language teachers to develop their learners' proficiency, by providing compelling and comprehensible input. Building bridges.


For me, it is not so much about “what technology could I introduce in the classroom?” but more “what technology would support/enhance my students’ learning and motivate them to produce more/better language?”

Some ideas I have implemented in the last few years. By no mean definitive or complete.

3. Say who you are in a wordle (Presentational):

5. Introduce your school to your pen pals using voice/video (Presentational)

French 2:

1. Create a travel blog – choose your own media, read, and comment on each others’ blogs (Presentational/Interpersonal):

2. Write and shoot a TV show, sitcom or drama – Have a “cérémonie des Césars afterwards!) (Presentational)
