In the foreign language methods classroom, teacher educators strive to model the practices they promote and to mentor student teachers in effective uses of technological tools. This session describes a project using synchronous computer-mediated communication to model techniques for incorporating technology in classroom language learning and provide a platform for critical dialogue. We argue that this multi-dimensional application of technology has enormous potential not only for demonstrating effective use of technology, but also for providing access to academic and professional discourse communities beyond the classroom and university.
