I have taught Japanese across private, catholic and government schools from Foundation to Yr 12. I am currently teaching Foundation to Year 6 students and use both iPads and Web 2.0 tools to engage students and enhance the learning experience. I believe iPads and Web 2.0 Tools provide Language Teachers with a powerful and innovative tool to add to their teaching toolbox, and empower them to become technological trend-setters.
