Why CyberEnglish is important, from the students' perspective

October 11th, 2008 · 3 Comments · CyberEnglish, Technology and Education, Web design

In this seventh iteration of CyberEnglish at Sheboygan Falls High School, it is again the students themselves who remind me why it is so important to keep insisting that we maintain our commitment to the concept of CyberEnglish itself.
