This paper reports preliminary findings on design-based research interventions implemented in a high school Spanish 3 class; electronic pen pals and student-developed blogs. This paper includes qualitative findings on student perceptions of writing to a pen pal from a Spanish speaking country and their opinions of creating blogs with their classmates on topics of mutual interest. These projects were designed to test one teacher’s assumptions about how technology can be motivating and authentic in the language classroom. These projects were also developed to support and promote 21st century skills in the language classroom, specifically fostering community, collaboration, and a connection to other cultures. A discussion of teacher perceptions, successes and challenges in implementing these technology-enhanced projects are included as well as implications for teacher education.
