Use of technology in my class...

I think we all agree that the main reason that we need to use technology in our classroom is because as teacher we need to be updated with the use of new tools that our students handle and engage them more, it is a way to encourage them and to make the classes more attractive to them, and those resources might help us improve our classes in different ways.
In my class I am not sure yet how to use some of the technologies, since definitely the use of computer and internet is not an option in my school, what I can relay on is the use of office applications, DVD players and mobile phones. Since I am working with young learners I think I can create activities to be worked with power point and of course children love stories which might be seen on video :D. I think those are my two best options so far (I haven't really planned an activity yet, I need some time and work on it). However I have seen that my students use a lot their BB most of the time to get into facebook. I guess we could work with it by creating a group and working on a specific topic (probably only with the oldest students)

  1. Sooner or later teachers will have to integrate LTs in their classrooms. It is a matter of time! If we want to mirror the way our students are learning we will have to do so. Also there's something in the air when it comes to the role of the teachers and classrooms in this century as a result of the pressure coming from the growing and fast development of ubiquitous technology all around the world.
