2006

   * Started using blogs in the classroom. (classblogs as bulletin board)
[provide links and write a narrative on how this was implemented - purpose, reaction
(even if not favourable) and results - why blogs as message boards and not as interactive
conversation or thoughts- Each tool has its property - use a static message board for
messages and a blog as a personal portfolio]



I understood that I wasn't using blogs as I should be in 2007. In august 2007, I decided to start using Ning instead, but it didn't work well on slow internet connections. Since then I haven't been using any technology in the classroom, other than videos, powerpoint or email.

   * Students created roleplays in slide.com
[same thing - describe what the purpose of the roleplays was/pbs encountered/outcomes]

   * There was ocasional use of websites for listening/grammar practice
[note down links, describe them (what they offer), reaction kids and perceived benefit
- or not]


2007

   * Classblogs as bulletin boards.(again - why blogs as message boards? top down teacher talk?]
Well, these were my first steps into this!! I now know better.

   * Continued using slide.com for roleplays.

   * Students created videos, but students requested that they were not uploaded to the internet.
[why..any reason -- good reflection there]

   * students used voicethread, created their own blogs
[links? progression? what did you notice?
is it possibile to follow the development of individual stds?
can you see any patterns emerging?
have you reflected together on the experience?]


   * There was ocasional use of websites for listening/grammar practice

   * Tested the use of chat (msn) for language learning.


2008

   * Decided that I was going to stop using ICT's in the classroom to start a
reflection and evaluation.
