This Classroom 2.0: The Book chapter can be downloaded at

This chapter was written by me and my colleague Diane Paravazian.  Please give feedback.  We have already started revising this version, however we would appreciate feedback if you have it.  The summary is below.
This chapter focuses on a assignment done with an advanced French grammar class, which was designed to engage students in applying the 5 C’s of the National Foreign Language Standards: communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities.  For this assignment students designed virtual tours in Paris. With the use of Google Maps and Screen-Cast-O-Matic, they travel through Paris and record dialogues they have created. These dialogues are then uploaded to YouTube,and linked to a wiki. They are used in class for further practice, conversation, and peer learning.Instructors assess student work and design strategies for effective learning. Technology specialists evaluate the effectiveness of the 2.0 tools to meet course objectives.
