Peter Smith

Secretary of OpenExam

I am an honours graduate of the Department of European Studies, University of East Anglia, and Dept. of Psychology, Salzburg Uni. I have 30 years of language teaching experience at both middle and high school levels. Since the mid-70’s I have researched the motivational language learning and assessment possibilities offered by multimedia and online technology. As secretary of OpenExam I can see the dawning of a new era in which students everywhere take more control of their language learning with the new technologies and work together for the common good.

    Collaborative learning should be an essential element for world language teachers who want their students to understand, enjoy, and use that new language.
