"Hello there" - case study of a telecollaborative project

One of the assignments in the “Telecollaboration in Language Learning” module of the MA in “Digital Technologies for Language Teaching” (DTLT) asks students to study closely the what’s and how’s of real-world telecollaborative projects.
“Hello there” project, run by Ana Maria Menezes and Jennifer Verschoor, was selected as a case study for its high-quality implementation and significant learning outcomes. The project paired 18 students from Brazil with 18 students from Argentina for 4 weeks of communication and information exchange in Edmodo.
Jane Basnett, student of the MA in DTLT, who examined the “Hello there” project in her paper reported that “[project’s] success must be attributed to the online collaborative competence of the partner instructors, Menezes and Verschoor.”



Students and tutors of the MA in DTLT would like to thank Ana Maria Menezes and Jennifer Verschoor for their contribution.
