« Les Fables de La Fontaine en PowerPoint | Main | A quarter of a million hits for an MFL blog! »



Thanks again for a great post about technology and the classroom.

Technology for me presents a great opportunity as a teacher and a language learner. The amount of freely available resources has really empowered the learner. I used technology and shared resources to learn basic Japanese on my own last Autumn.

I try and incorporate a lot of those strategies and technologies into my ESL classes. I think it is a great thing that students can now do more on their own -- which actually shifts some of the responsibility off of the teacher.

I'm a big believer in students (at least adult learner) taking responsibility for their own learning. I now see myself as more of a language coach & resource person their to guide students rather than 'teach' them anything.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for your comment. I agree that there are many distance learning opportunities nowadays for pupils (and adult learners) to practise and revise at home or on the move. The challenge is to give them the incentive and encourage them to do so.

I love your blog but you should consider changing the html so that it's not so long and narrow. It's very hard to read because of this reason.

Thanks for your comment. I am considering redesigning the look of the blog. The question is finding the time.
