Series Title: Telecollaboration in Education. Vol. 1
Description:

Telecollaboration, or online intercultural exchange, has become widely
recognised as an effective way to promote the development of intercultural
communicative competence and language skills. However, the study and
implementation of new 2.0 environments such as wikis, Skype, virtual worlds
and gaming for telecollaboration is still in its infancy. How can these
multilingual, multimodal, collaborative environments be used to promote
language and intercultural learning? What are the implications for teachers
and learners and what new literacies are required? Do they offer an added-
value? This book seeks to answer these questions and many more by
bringing together the experience and expertise of researchers and
practitioners alike. The authors offer critical stances, new frameworks and
practical case studies to help the reader 'navigate' the world of
telecollaboration 2.0.
