Thinking about the teaching before the tools

My colleague Cindy Evans at Skidmore College presented this paper at a conference I attended last year on using wikis in the second language classroom. With her permission, she has agreed to let me post it here.

What I appreciate about her work with this technology is that she identified a specific instructional problem in her French language and culture course and then thought about using available technology to address that problem. A very practical approach, and as a result, a very successful project.

Cindy Evans’ paper on using wikis in the FL classroom

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
