About this blog

Here at the Institute, we investigate things that interest us. We are interested in almost anything.

    That is exactly the point and underpins what I believe about learning. What Web 2.0 exposure provides are new ideas that could supplement, complement, even replace approaches. I believe in tablet PCs to practice non-Roman scripts, iPods to facilitate practice, and SmartBoards connectied to the Internet to bring authentic materials to the foreign language classroom. Now I need ways to provide virtual supervised practice. Can Facebook be the way?

    I will upload my paper on the neurochemistry of language learning (and I believe all other learning that starts with explicit/declarative knowledge). From that information flows learning and teaching practice. If time is limited, technology can help to build more experience and use of learned and acquired knowledge, thus developing automaticity and freeing the limited bandwidth of the conscious/explicit/declarative channel for new learning and dealing with nuance.
