About me

PhotoMy name is Carmenne Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal and yes, that IS a pretty long name.

I’m currently a PhD student at the University of Stendhal-Grenoble 3 (France) studying under the joint supervision of Professor François Mangenot and Dr. Thierry Soubrié. My thesis looks at collaborative processes that pre-service teachers are engaged in while preparing digital teaching resources for teaching English at primary school.

On the professional front, I’ve been teaching languages (French and English) since 2006 (download my CV). I started integrating technology in my teaching practices since 2009 and I’ve never looked back since. My initial experiences showcased students’ writing competencies on blogs. With ever-changing technologies and professional experience, I gradually started proposing tasks requiring much more than merely scribbling on blogs. We experimented with podcasts striving to improve listening skills, and elaborated projects that required multiple skills to be challenged at once.

Projects have steadily grown more and more complex with time as you will see through the various student projects that I am proud to present to you.

No matter where I have worked, my love for technology hasn’t altered and I’ve never ceased to be amazed at just how convenient and practical this gigantic world of interconnected dots can be.

If you find my work interesting, if you would like to keep in touch or perhaps collaborate with a current batch of students I have, do subscribe to my blog and let me know. Or you could simply drop in a line if you wish. I’d love to hear from you 🙂
