Using Technology to Raise Cultural Awareness | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners |

I am from the UK, but I live and work in Curitiba in the south of Brazil. I have found that students are often very interested in how things are done in different countries...


This means that cultural awareness was a part of my teaching long before the current obsession with doing everything with technology. I am a firm believer in using technolgoy when it offers something different and there is a storng pedagogigcal case for doing so. All too often people use the latest high-tech gizmo just for the sake of using it.


However, technology has opened up certain ways of raising cultural awareness that perhaps weren't there before.
