A purpose for our class

A purpose for our class | Digital tools for English learning | Scoop.it

Talking about our English class, I would purpose to use social networks in some lessons.

 

Facebook- We can create a private group of the class. I would do the writings on there because it's very simple to log in, you can see the creations of your classmates and you can learn a little vocabulary and grammar. It's also quite comfortable for the teacher in order to correct it and to put some comments. It's also a good way to put links of interesant websites that contain activities.

 

Twitter- I would create a hashtag for the class in order to put there some comments about the lessons and the words or the grammar you don't understand. Maybe a classmate knows it and can tell you what does it mean.

Nowadays, the influence of this websites in our lifes is very high. It's due to the fact that there is a very big variety of them and you can do lots of things. We have to be aware about the chances that these tools offer us.

 

Knowing how to use them and being creative is very important for not being behind. Now, I'm going to explain in a few words two social networks that are very important, and it would be interesant to use them in class.

 

Facebook- it's a very trendy social network where you can post whatever you want: status, comments, photos, videos... You can also play funny games, see the profile of your friends and chat with them, like pages of famous people, brands, important places, funny things, get some information, create an event or a group with your friends...

 

Twitter- it's a social network that has grown up a lot this year. You can follow your friends, famous people, brands, fakes... You can mention to the people (@) and you can create a hashtag (#) to talk about something. It also allows you to post photos but there isn't an instant messaging service.

Digital resources in class

Social networks are already very important for people and for business. Nowadays, the question of using these websites in class is a trend. The opinion of the people is very variated. Somepeople say that it's a good thing because students will learn in an original way, but many others think that students won't pay attention in class as they do in normal lessons. 

 

It's also a difficult question. It would be good for the students but if the school buys a computer for each student, the economic cost for the government will be very high. A good option will be that students carry up his own computer or smartphone. Nowadays, everybody has one of these mobile phones, that offer you a lot of possibilities, and you can use them to social-networking wherever you want.

Old-fashioned digital resources for class

Old-fashioned digital resources for class | Digital tools for English learning | Scoop.it

Personally, I think that classes without using social networks will be impossible in few years. We have been trying some methods these years, but I think they aren't good enough to be used constantly as a work tool.

 

Last two years, we used Digital Book. It was an app that allowed you to make the activities of the book in the computer. You made the tasks and you got a score. Then that punctuation was seen by the teacher and he put you that mark.

 

In my opinion, I think this is not a good way to learn english. You only made the activities, but you didn't learn all the important things of the language.
