  2. Hello! Thank you for the tips!

    I think they really sum up all the potential of technology for teaching.
    This week we`ve really seen so many good examples of some of the tips you mention!
    If you think, the lesson plans and the sites we had to explore include interactive exercises, music, video, podcasts and the possibilities of working with these materials go beyond the one`s suggested!
    I`m a fan of videos and podcasts for teaching, which can be used together with blogs, wikis and simple websites. All these tools can help promote our students aural and oral abilities, and still promote reading and writing as well! Well, I guess most technological "instruments" available to us are quite complete in terms of the skills they can promote!

    We`re lucky don`t you think?

    Keep up the good work!
