Sylvia, your workshop was just the shot in the arm that I needed to dive more deeply into using technology in the classroom.  The day was filled with fantastic sites, videos and interactive ideas to appeal to my intermediate Core French students.  Merci beaucoup! Mary Adams

Hi Sylvia, thank you so much for the fabulous workshop and infinite number of technological tools for instructing and engaging students in the FSL classroom.  I am so excited about offering my intermediates a range of choices that inspire them far beyond the classroom walls.  It makes so much sense to expand second language learning opportunities by using platforms of current modes of communication so familiar and appropriate to this demographic .  Mille fois merci!  I will keep you posted as to how things go! Juli Powers

I’ve now attended 2 of Sylvia’s workshops for technology in the FSL classroom and cannot recommend them highly enough. I was able to use materials and resources from the sessions with my classes immediately and I left both sessions  with plenty of new ideas and contacts.  Michelle Barchuk

I attended Sylvia’s workshop in November. She introduce us to blogs, twitter, and youtube sites on her fabulous website, so easy to use with students, so interactive  for elementary students and adults in these times of high tech skills that our students have developed. I use the many songs consistently as the song and lyrics are just a click away with excellent visuals for comprehension. I have used the e-books with students as a guided reading exercise and as a comprehension tool. I intend to use the animation software so that student can create their own comic strips using any of the vocabulary and structures you’re teaching in your classroom. I am also interested in creating a blog “Mon Espace” so that students can share interesting French tidbits that they find in everyday life thus increasing their awareness of how French permeates our culture. Sylvia has given me confidence to explore the internet to enhance learning for students in yet another fascinating , engaging and fun way! Candy Bermingham, Summit Heights Public School

It is incredibly beneficial to have someone with first hand experience and expertise when it comes to using technology in the classroom. Sylvia’s enthusiasm for teaching, and keeping it current and relevant, make her workshops worth attending. She’s been there, done it and is so good at helping you get going on your way. Ruta Nausedas, Junior School French Teacher, St. Mildred’s-Lightbourn School
