From our brainstorm list of possible topics (or others that have surfaced in your thinking):
  • Which interest you? The student as a global communicator and global learner. Skype, Blogs, editing movies in a foreign language. Students audiovisual and digital portfolios.

  • Which peak your personal/professional curiosity the most? How can I enhance the students learning languages.

  • What questions surface within the topic(s) and with specific regard to your practice? To your own learning? To student learning?
How can I make students more aware of other cultures by communicating to students of another language? How can I make connections with the Lower School foreign language closer? Will it help students? Will the time invested in the global activity will be worth the time invested?
Different question: How can I leave the students with a portfolio at the end of his journey learning a foreign language?
