Hi there!!

Remember it is a good idea to check your classmates' blogs as well as mine... they have interesting ideas and reflections, and some have already included links to useful sites.

If you haven't added to your blog the list with our blogs, do it soon because it will prove useful and time-saving.

Continue enjoying the weekend!

Hi again!

I wanted to recommend that you read Sergio's summary of the lecture.... for those of you who were there it will act as a reminder, and for those of you who weren't it will give you a very general overview. If you are interested in finding out more, ask Andrea: she recorded part of the lecture.

Sergio's blog is http://beingtechnologicalteachers.blogspot.com.ar/

Keep up the good work!


Hello everybody!

Yesterday we organized the class in two groups: the "innocent" and the "experienced", chronologically speaking... thus organized, we had a competition based on the contents of chapter 3 on TBLT... apart from going over the main concepts presented in the chapter, we had some fun!

Next class we will go through chapters 5 and 6, and the class after that we'll have the term test... this is why I didn't give any new homework yesterday... so that you can start studying!

Those of you who owe some homework, it is time to catch up, please...

Hi everyone!

A few hours ago we had the great opportunity of attending Emilio Tenti Fanfani's lecture. I think all of us who were there can agree that it was an enriching experience. First of all, he is an eloquent and entertaining lecturer. Morever, he discussed ideas closely related to our subject matter and our profession. Furthermore, he brought up topics worth reflecting on...

I invite those of you who were there to make comments in this blog for those who were not there... Which one of all the ideas discussed did you find most interesting and/or compelling?

Today's class

Hi there!

Today we devoted part of the class to clearing some doubts on your blogs. The idea was to learn how to use a new application, but for "technical" reasons it was not possible... That's the way it goes as far as the TICs are concerned: using teachnological devices in our classes is enriching and worthwhile, but it is also time consuming and frustrating at times... Nevertheless, there are tools which are too good to be ignored....

We finished discussing chapter 1 on TBLT and almost all chapter 2 (all that remains to be discussed are the seven principles). For homework there's not much, since I want all of you to catch up with your work. You have to describe two tasks and classify them in terms of macrofunction, microfunction and grammar and also develop a final task with its six steps...

Remember next Thursday there are no "regular" classes, but we'll meet at school 14 for a lecture. It's at 6pm.

Changing the world

Anyone can change the world.... at least the tiniest bit... Even more so a teacher who is constantly working with children...

Another class...

Hi everyone!

Today we had another enjoyable class. We finished work on teaching and learning styles and we started working on TBLT.

For next class remember you have to write and publish in your blog a reflection on whether we can change the world from the classroom. Also, you have to write (this time to hand in next class) a reflection on your teaching style (based on the survey you did from the reading material). Moreover, you have to read chapters 3, 5 and 6 on TBLT by Nunan.

Remember on the 19th we'll have no classes....
