This is designed to be an innovative, exciting and collaborative initiative. We anticipate extending invitations to approximately 75 teachers with the goal of at least 30 actively participating in the project.
Dissemination of information about applying for participation will be through a variety of Web 2.0 networks, such as Facebook and Twitter. ACTFL Board members and NCSSFL members will also be encouraged to urge innovative teachers to apply.
This project envisions aligning with ACTFL partners, like Hello-Hello, pushing many of the traditional boundaries out of the way of student learning. We will also be including a limited number of innovative teachers from other disciplines, as well as world language teachers from other parts of the globe.
Active participants, who judge this to be a good “fit” for their work through sustained participation, will be invited to F2F elements of the project. We currently anticipate this to include a preconference workshop at the 2012 ACTFL convention, and a 2013 summer conference.
