CMC for languages

The word is out. Here's a take on delivering opportunities for communication in MFL using free technologies:

However providing the technology is now the easiest part. Most young people are very comfortable communicating through computers using skype, msn etc. What we should be serious about as language educators is understanding how the medium affects the communication. To do this we need to capture and study the interactions, hence my emphasis on using the best professional educational tools for the job. It isn't just what we do, it is the way that we do it that counts!
