Sinikka, I would like to Skype with you about education. I am a reading specialist in Langdon,ND. USA
My grandparents came from Finland so I am interested in your country because of my family. I have a master's degree in Technology Education and teach a summer course for the University of North Dakota in Emerging Technologies. Paula Rogers
The Ning page is actually in English because this course is a French/Francophone literature in translation course. We have added the translation feature though so that as many people as possible can participate. Here is the link for French Book Club.
With your work in intercultural communication, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
A colleague and I are starting a Ning page (frenchbookclub.ning.com) which will follow our syllabi for a college level French and Francophone literature in translation course. We would love for you and/or your students to participate! We're under construction until the beginning of the semester (Jan 20, 2009), but feel free to take a look at what we've created thus far! Take care!
Welcome to Classroom 2.0 ! I am a French teacher too and you may interested to check out the links to resources I have on my blog, My Languages, for French and English. Go to my blog and click on the corresponding delicious tag on the right e.g. French, English or EAL (the list of tags is very long, you might fancy something else like ICT or software to check out some of those web 2.0 tool! )
Hi Sinikka! What a great surprise to get a message from you here at Ning. Otherwise, I'm also a newbie at this site but it seems to have great educational potentials.
I'm just getting my feet wet here but hopefully I'll soon be able to get full advantage of it. :)
Let's keep in touch!
Have a nice weekend, you too! :)
