Just finished a Skype session with a former student now in Nicaragua. Though I had (from time to time) been following his blog, it was nice to hear his familiar voice (and would have been even nicer if our cameras were working). How egocentric of me to assume that he had the same technological resources as I.
As I decide whether to move from Typepad to WordPress blogging software, I am revisiting earlier written blogs. These musings seem germane to the proposal several of my students are writing to create a virtual international experience for Carroll students. What suggestions do you have for my students seeking to provide supplementary virtual international learning experiences?
