I'm currently teaching middle school French at Stratford Academy and serving as the Chair of World Languages.
Feel free to check out my blog and wiki from my time at UCONN and if anyone has techniques or suggestions about how to get students excited about learning or simply things that have worked, I would love to hear about it. So leave me comments!
With your interest in Web 2.0 Education Technology, 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.
Bonjour Nathalie, bien sûr que nous sommes prêts à travailler avec toi si tu le désires... As-tu vu les projets que nous développons cette année, notamment le Vendée Globe Project ? Pour skype c'est ok, mais il faut gérer le décalage horaire si tu veux que nos élèves interagissent en direct... Le mieux Nathalie serait que tu t'inscrives sur notre ning pour comprendre la logique de nos projets. Je suis rarement sur Classroom 2.0.
A très bientôt, et au plaisir de travailler prochainement avec toi...

Hi there, Nathalie! I'm glad you joined Classroom 2.0. I'm just looking at the live chat bar here to the right and see that Cami is looking for teachers interested in communicating and collaborating with her students around global issues. I think you might find some teachers here to work with, too. Good luck!
