I would like to share with you all this lovely video. I'm sure you are gonna love it










My name is Rosa and I am currently teaching EFL in a secondary school in a town near Madrid.


I am especially interested in developing effective strategies for using ICT as a tool in my teaching practice. I am also looking forward to learning from other colleagues, I’m sure this can be a chance to learn and grow as a teacher as well.

I have been exploring the use of ICT for language teaching since 2006. I have created 3 blogs and a wiki so far through which I try to guide students at the same time I learn and discover.

What really excites me about web20 is that we can now more easily create materials that cater for different learning styles and abilities, and also that both students and teachers have a chance to practice and perfect their language through online communication with people from all over the world.

That said, I hope to be doing things right, it takes me ages to get everything working, still netlearning ;-)


I woukd also like to share with you a marvellous, excellent, in fact undoubtedly, unquestionably  the GR8Test Spanish  EFL website

It would be unfair not to mention the second best in my humble opinion.

I'm afraid good things come in threes



My sites on the net:









Now my concentration often starts to drift after two or three pages. I get fidgety, lose the thread, begin looking for something else to do. I feel as if I’m always dragging my wayward brain back to the text. The deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle.

I think I know what’s going on. For more than a decade now, I’ve been spending a lot of time online, searching and surfing and sometimes adding to the great databases of the Internet. The Web has been a godsend to me as a writer (teacher, rather).

For me, as for others, the Net is becoming a universal medium, the conduit for most of the information that flows through my eyes and ears and into my mind.

I honestly do not think Googling is making us more stupid than we already are, but it is definitely making us different.

Hi again, I have been terribly busy and missed some good sessions here.

I would like to share with all of you a lovely video that  a friend of mine has just sent me, enjoy the free trip around the world.

I'll try to catch up in the following week. 


Best regards to all.

Thanks for stopping by, I haven't been able to check or read much for the last three days, sorry, I'll catch up soon, hopefully.

I'm taking notes from that wonderful lecture by Dr. Welch. Isn't it amazing? I love it! There are one famous quote I like from his video-lecture:
STUDENTS LEARN WHAT THEY CARE ABOUT, FROM PEOPLE THEY CARE ABOUT, AND WHO, THEY KNOW, CARE ABOUT THEM, which is even far mooooooooooore true when it comes to secondary students.

Also, I completely agree that "The challenge for( higher) learning is to create learning environments that realize and leverage the emerging media environment, to create platforms for participation that allow students to realize and leverage the emerging media environment".

Best regards.

Thanks for the link to the Wesch article. I suppose he has covered this material in the video he mentions <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGCJ46vyR9o&feature=related">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGCJ46vyR9o&feature=related</a> and perhaps the Twitter and world simulation project <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgbfMY-6giY&feature=channel_page">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgbfMY-6giY&feature=channel_page</a>. Nice to have an article to put in my delicious account.
