 Welcome to our Technology English Class!

                                                                                                   

Learning a language in the 21st century puts the learner in front of a myriad of software and hardware programs. Nevertheless, the choice is not easy to make. The bottom line for learning and using a language is to create a cooperative environment where the user, i.e.the learner and the provider, i.e. teacher work together in  an organized, friendly and tight collaboration where every one shares what s/he is doing.  To achieve this purpose I have created a WIKI platform as a two way  collaborative environment to enhance teachers and learners' cooperation  and interaction using authentic on line activities and technological tools in order to build and share a friendly micro learning environment!

 

 Major Achievements:

  1- The students learn oral skills: Listening and Speaking next to Reading and Writing

  2- Next to L2 language skills and language content, they learn a number of technology skills and computer skills that can be valuable for them as future parents, workers and citizens of the modern world.

  3- One of the outcomes of my Wiki is to build a learning environment.

In authoring my Wiki webspace creation "techenglishclass", I echo Warschauer's statement " Accessing and using these pages in language education supports a sociocognitive approach by helping immerse students in discourses that extend well beyond the classroom, their immediate communities, and their language textbook. This is particularly critical for foreign language students who otherwise see the target culture only through their instructor and select curricula" .

Collaboration is a must in Education. Currently, I am preparing my March 2012 TESOL Convention in Philadelphia, and I will be presenting about teacher collaborartion in EFL contexts! Fingers crossed.
