Excellent - well done Joe - you see the recognition will come. I am really pleased for you, it must give you a feeling of achievement :-) I look forward to meeting up on Friday at the TeachMeet.... Paul

Well done Joe. John Bald is right, you have shown that so many things are possible with ICT. Your ideas have certainly enhanced some of my teaching.

I will be using this blog post to help underscore what should be happening in every foreign language program worldwide. I was recently informed my district will be making me use a TEXTBOOK to teach Spanish-that is a 20 year setback as far as I am concerned.I am trying to bring everyone on board with web 2.0! I also doubt there is any evidence of communicative proficiency/mastery in a second language tied to text driven teaching. If that were the case, anyone who had ever studied a language in school would be able to effectively communicate in it.
Glad to have found your blog!

Hi Linda,

I think the key is to use a blend of actvities. Textbooks have their place for ready made exercises as does ICT for whole class teaching, interactive exercises, blogs, podcasts etc.

Web 2.0 tools are great for engaging pupils and enhancing learning opportunities, but I don't think we should forget traditional methodology as was highlighted in the above article.

Thanks for your comment.
