Project 2: Les Chemins des Amis
Learning a second language requires morn than a willing and motivated mind; there must be a positive and challenging medium whereby information acquired is shared and communicated in the second language being learned. To become effective communicators, students will be given the opportunity to write, read, speak and listen to other students their own age via the Internet.
Students will prepare questions and, in turn, be asked questions to gather and share relevant, meaningful, interesting and useful information that crosses language and cultural boundaries. All conversations and information will be recorded in a journal for evaluation purposes.
Technology integration will occur mainly in:
The STELLAR School Internet connection would provide a means whereby students can become effective communicators using a communicative approach to language learning.
Charisma Pentecostal Collegiate has two computer lab networks connected to a file server to access the world wide web.
Other resources included a resource centre, scanner and a MIDI. However, more microphones will have to be connected for more personal access.
Students will record conversations and information in a journal which will be incorporated into the core curriculum. Written and oral reports will be evaluated for content, accuracy, interest and usefulness according to curriculum guidelines for each individual.
