Recently, I was talking with a colleague about Earl Stevick and the influence he has had on both of us. We discussed how his material, although much of it being written decades ago, has had a profound influence on the way we teach and learn. I was commenting to this instructor about how much of his work was still relevant and could be applied to different situations such as the use of technology in the classroom. This person suggested that I take the time to explore this in depth and share it with her since she knows Earl quite well and would love to tell him about how his work is being used in the modern classroom. I decided to take her up on that challenge and have started to read over some of his earlier work through the lens of technology in language learning.
