Addressing the Need for Electronic Communication in Foreign Language Teaching.
LeLoup, Jean W.; Ponterio, Robert
Use of electronic communication options to access foreign language teaching resources is discussed, illustrated with examples from programs and applications found in New York State. The discussion is divided into four sections, each addressing an aspect of electronic communication for preparing for and teaching a foreign language: issues of access to computer resources, including appropriate equipment, connectivity, training in the use of electronic resources, time, and limitations presented by the need for non-Roman character sets and diacritical marks; Internet resources, including lists, service lists, and language-specific lists; use of gophers and resources on the World Wide Web; examples of potential uses of Internet resources; and proposals and plans projected for the future. (Contains 17 print and electronic resources.) (MSE)
