When I participated for the first time in the “Cyber-Langues” convention for foreign language teachers in August 2011 in France, I quickly realized that there are many more teachers like me, who think that ICT should have their place in the foreign language classroom, who are actively promoting their use and seek continuous training to be up to date. They then use what they have learned in their own classrooms in order to help students develop ICT literacy. This revelation made me start this blog because, in my opinion, sharing is part of the modern skill set if you want to be successful as a teacher.
A little bit about myself: I have graduated from the University of Tuebingen in Germany with a teaching degree in French and English as well as with a B.A. in Japanese Studies with a minor in American Studies and I am currently teaching foreign languages full-time at a high school in Southern Germany. I frequently use ICT in the classroom. During my studies I have spent about two years abroad in France, Japan and the United States. While having a full-time position as a teacher, I am also working on a PhD thesis about the Asian American community at the University of Mainz, I am an edublogger and webmaster of numerous websites.
This blog is about useful Web 2.0 tools for foreign language teachers, my projects for and with my students and reviews of the webinars and classes I have taken to be up-to-date.
