She has colleagues in other countries but she’s not really sure how she could utilize these connections and organize this kind of learning situation for her students. How could the teacher design an English course where international network is utilized? What activities are appropriate to organize locally and what should the students do in international collaboration? Why? What kind of technology is needed in this kind of collaboration?
