How to make all language classrooms places where International dialogue occurs
Virtual Exchange (VE) for language education is where individual students, either by themselves or in groups, interact via the Internet with student peers in other countries but, importantly, under the tutelage of their teacher. There are many examples of it and in this session I would outline some that have been presented at the APVEA conferences and elsewhere in addition to outlining the IVEProject. VE is an incredible way to ensure your language classroom becomes a place where students are excited to learn because they know they will have to use the language they are studying to interact with international peers. How this happens, the benefits of incorporating VE, and information on the IVEProject will all be covered in this session.
