Language Resource Centers have been a gathering point for the advent of digital technology in the learning and teaching of foreign languages. We have experienced the transformation from analog recording systems and computer based worksheets to the use of locally-based and virtual digital tools. And among these tools are Language Resources, monolingual, bilingual and parallel corpora, translation memories, sites that channel news sources – the list is almost endless. Along with this has come the opportunity for learners to co-create and share content. The language classroom and the language resource center are thus the innovation centers if you will for the foreign language learning curriculum. Above all, language teachers cannot ignore the work being done in creating usable content and applicable tools. And this makes language learning truly cross-disciplinary.

Any examples of research being conducted or used, cross-disciplinary endeavors and lesson-based content creation would be particularly welcome.
