Every week during our course is so productive and creative. The third week for me was a week of making my blog better! I've learned, at least, how to create additional pages at my blog (I've created three - About me, Course and Participants). Also I wanted to know how many people visit my blog and where are they from, so again, I've learned how to set the flag-counter and did it. And the last, I found how to make the time-line of the duration of our course. So, I can say about myself - not bad, continue to learn.
Besides, this week I have known about so useful site for bookmarking www.delicious.com. I began to bookmark as much sites as possible, but after reading Susana's blog from Portugal, I understood that I have to pay more attention to the tags of different sites. Tags should be very detailed and specific.
The next task for us was to tell about some sites which help us and our students to develop listening and speaking skills. It takes almost whole week to look through different useful sites, every day I found better and better pages, but ... my favourite became Randall's listening Lab, which provide every visitors with the best orginized listening tasks for any level of English or any topic .
And the third task of the third week was exploring the articles about CALL. At the beginning, I even didn't know what is it CALL, and I had to look for information at wikipedia. Also I've found some funny video about it at www.youtube.com. There are a lot of different movies about using technologies at school.
After that I read two articles which Deborah asked us to read. Yeah, this week we read a lot, I even printed articles and worked with them at school between the lessons, also I copied posts of our participants at nicenet and read them with textmarker in the hand. And only after that I wrote my second message to forum with explanation how technology could be helpful in improving students aural/oral skills.
