Research Summary

Daryl Boeckers brings almost 15 years of experience of teaching secondary Spanish in public schools. A passion for technology integration paired with a desire to grow and keep current with second language pedagogy led Daryl to explore how Web 2.0 tools afforded communicative opportunities in his second language classroom for his Master’s thesis. Daryl currently pursues his doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction: Learning Technologies at the University of Minnesota and will soon propose a dissertation that examines technology integration in a variety of second language learning contexts. Audiences for Daryl’s writing include teacher candidates and in-service teachers of second languages and cultures. He has published workshop handbooks for the Bureau of Education and Research as a national presenter and educational consultant and also conferences proceedings for the Society for Informational Technology and Technology Education discussing the role of technology in the second language classroom. Boeckers recently received the Emma Birkmaier Outstanding Language Educator Award in October at the Fall Conference for the Minnesota Council on the Teaching of Languages and Cultures for his contributions to the field of second languages and cultures.
