Since I’ll be presenting to my colleagues for the next term about loving ♥ and using benefits of computer I decided to publish this post.
The time when I started teaching I directly started to search sources of inspiration and some useful materials on the internet. One by one I learnt what blogging, web 2.0 tools and even IATEFL (which I’ll attend this year) mean . Then using Twitter for learning and sharing came next. Follow me btw I found innovative&wonderful people whom I share their names in my blogroll and always read their posts and tweets. THANK YOU ALL!
I strongly believe the importance of sharing so when they want me to present again(this is not the 1st time I also presented last year but this time I want to make sth more professional) I decided to make a list of my favorite tools to make teachers’ lives easier.
The point why I am publishing this is the fact that I always need help, ready to learn from you all. I’m open to every new ideas and appreciate if you have sth to say and suggest me on what to present and how to present. I have a list of my faves but if I missed sth important please write me.
Please notice that I’ll present not only to EFL teachers, to teachers from different departments as well.
You can prepare a poster full of objectives or explanations or summary of your lessons with Glogster. Take a look at the best glogs page and get inspired. You can prepare a page with Popplet to make your lesson more interesting. Here is an example.
You have a picture and wondering where it comes from then try TinEye. It s a image search engine. You can create cool speaking activities with that one. Mostly if you teach History or Geography.
You don’t have to e-mail yourself a file or worry about your usb devices again try Dropbox.
While searching with your PC you can easily save the website that you want to visit later to your favorites. However, if you discover some useful websites when you are not using your PC, you can easily save them in Delicious and even share with anyone else.
