It's been a pleasure!!

Hi there!!

Today we've had our last class... and I think we all enjoyed it!

I wanted to share with you the videos I mentioned in class. Even if they are not directly related to the teaching of English, they are great examples of the possibilities the TICs offer... I'd love to read your comments on them!

I have found this one unforgettable!!

And here there's another...

Well... it's time to go now, but we'll meet again soon!!

Some more links


Here there is some material that last Friday's groups wanted to share with all of us!

These are some links the girls recommend:

Virtual classrooms:

There are endless sources of resources on the internet. Here are some of them:

We are all familiar with but sometimes we don’t have access to internet at schools. If you use Mozilla Firefox to browse the web, then go to the section of complements and download it is really easy to use and allows you to download any video from YouTube (it’s a Firefox extension, therefore only works with Firefox)
You are used to do hundreds of notes and cards on your computer and don’t know what else to do to try to make them interesting? Have you tried using different types of letters? (Fonts).  Already tired of using the same one’s time and time again? Then install new ones! This site has thousand of new interesting fonts.  Some can even be used just for decoration! And they are free!

Are you in need of pictures? This site has billions of them and its users are constantly uploading more. From designers’ stuff to cartoons and concept photos. And tutorials for hand crafts too! Just try exploring it! Some of the photos are just great to engage students in discussions!

Educational technology

Hi there!

Last Friday, after we managed to get a room, we had some feedback on the term test.In particular,we clarified some questions several students had found problematic. Afterwards, we had the last presentation, which was on Educational Technology. It was really clear and well prepared.

Here I share some videos on the use of cuisenaire rods, which we discussed in class.

If you are interested, continue surfing the net...there's a lot of  material on the subject!

Here there are two more links:
