my blog post is here.

I am cross-posting. Trying to decide to move my blogging to Classroom 2.0.

I have been on for a while but they updated the site in August '07 and my earlier original blog posts did not manage to survive the transition.

Hola, Linda,
I wondered whether you had any advice to teachers who are using ePals to match up Spanish-learners with Spanish-speakers and how to make that pairing successful.

The winning team for the ISTE award on teacher/media specialist collaboration last year was a middle school Spanish teacher and a media specialist who used ePals to do projects. Their work was written up in a recent issue of Learning & Leading with Technology ( I'm not sure that you can read the article online if you aren't a member, but perhaps someone in your school is a member and could get you the article. The school was in Georgia.
Did you know that last summer ePals brought in 30,000 teachers who work in Latin America? That has made it a lot easier for teachers of Spanish language to find LOTS of classrooms of native speakers.
Saludos de Miami, Rita
