Getting the Most Out of Teaching and Learning: Online Facilitation, Collaboration, Motivation and Validation in the 21st Century by Jeff Cooper and David Weksler
When do students learn language best? Everyone knows: when they're munchkin sized. However very few U.S. students get any foreign language experience until they're in 6th or 7th grade. Why not? Because they're not *mandates* or *standards*. Learn how to facilitate global collaboration, free online e-book creation for all students, e-portfolios, Google Education Classrooms, SmartBoard problem based learning, GPBL, and much more (educational support sites including Shmoop, Mathway, Funbrain).
Jeff Cooper started teaching English and ESL in 1991. Facilitated Richmond High Students (of "Coach Carter" fame) international publication in 1996 using a new tool: the Internet. http://snurl.com/netc1 ("Building 21st Century Collaborative Learning Communities") gives further details on that accomplishment (and a few others). I volunteered over 40,000 hours between 1997 and 2013 at "Tapped In," (a professional educator's collaborative).
