Defrag Language Learning

Standard practices in the Foreign Language classroom is to present language in fragments or smaller chunks which may one day be successfully synthesized to form a coherent whole in the learner's mind, hopefully resulting in fluent output. Research and experience have proved this inadequate. In this talk, I will be looking at activities involving technology which promote holistic learning and motivate the learners to acquire language through collaborative and meaningful projects using a variety of Web 2.0 tools.
