A video created to start a conversation at the Fear 2.0 session of IALLT 2009. Created using Creative Commons licensed photos from Flickr.
The idea behind the video is to think about how languages are currently taught. Has much changed in 50 years? Have we simply substituted new technology for the old without changing the methods? Look for new opportunities to connect students to native speakers using games, Second Life, blogs, and more. In order to be open to these opportunities, we must open up our classrooms and let the world in.
