Are you a language teacher?
The ways technology has changed the way we teach are uncountable. The possibilities are endless. Ten years ago, I have never thought that so much would be at our disposition as teachers and as learners. But with all the changes taking place, we barely have time to look back at those old days when all you have is a blackboard and a few resources that , God knows how, you managed to find. Nowadays , PCs, the internet, datashows, laptops are only some of the many high-tech resources that you can use to help your teaching. Italk is here, like many other sites, to help learners of new languages. We, as teachers, can take advantage of such great places to help and carefully guide our students and students from all over the world to learn better with less effort. While here, i met a few learners struggling to learn either by looking for a partner or asking questions. All is good! All is great. But, how can we, as language teachers, provide guidance, share ideas and colloborate to make these students enjoy their stay while at the same time save effort and time..
I am actually working on creating a website for learners of English where I would post podcasts and videos, photocopiable material, quizzes, etc.. I would be glad to see others join to share the effort. How? by exchanging ideas, uploading lessons or videos, etc.. I would be also very happy to share my own experience and provide help if any colleagues might like the idea and want to have their own blogs or sites for teaching other languages..
I am waiting for you comments and ideas..While doing that, i am actually busy creating my blog.. it is so much fun! I hope it would be ready by the end of this month or the next one..By ready, I mean posting my first lesson(s) on my weblog..
btw: I have also a blog for EFL teachers. You may want to have a look there:) I would love to see ur comments there :)
See you soon!
