Nathan Edwards, a presenter at JALTCALL2000 and a major contributor to Recipes for Wired Teachers: Practical Ideas by Teachers for Teachers (published by JALT's CALL SIG), will present some pratical internet activities for students. The four areas explored are:

  1. Utilizing global "live" webcams in the language classroom.
  2. Using Panoramic 3D Images: Free, easy to use "Livepicture" software.
  3. Discovering Internet Relay Chat: Analyzing authentic texts.

Please note that even teachers who do not currently have or do not use a computer will benefit from the discussion of teaching methodology and the exchange of ideas.
