This is the end of our course! What a journey!
Did you think you were going to go out of your mind?
Well here is a song that might relate to that feeling!
Yeah, it's mine!

Congratulations, guys!
I hope you're not NEUROTIC!

It's a little weird to think of the end of our course as a "graduation".
When I look back at the past 10 weeks, I can't find just one word to describe the journey.
I believe our friend Rick Monteiro is the one who defines it in the best way.
You can all remember the first posts and comments.
We were all a little scared to face the monster. Nobody knew what to expect.
And yet we all survived.
Now we roam free through the dark alleys of the web.
Discovering new paths and toys to play with.
And we aren't scared to try anymore.
And that's the most important thing, at least for me.
Therefore, we can't call this a graduation.
Maybe we should call it initiation.
The journey doesn't end here. On the contrary, my friends.
This course was merely the doorway, the entrance, the first step.
The rest of the journey will be up to us!
Good luck to you all!
Don't become strangers.
See you around!

Flickr - Pedagogical Uses

I have a "Prime 3" group in Asa Sul. We have just started a lesson on animals. What we could do is ask each student to post a picture of their pets. Everyone could comment on them.

Besides that, we could start a discussion on animal treatment.
Who knows? Maybe even compare the treatment pets receive at home with the treatment animals at the zoo receive.

Ultimately, the students would be able to practice the vocabulary of the lesson, as well as the intended grammar.

But that's ok!
Only 81 days to go for my vacations!

Last Thursday we had a chat with the webtools crowd on skype.
Since we were debating what feedback really was, I thought this picture was appropriate.

It isn't only about what the teacher has to say, or how he/she will evaluate you.
Assessment comes from your peers, how they will interact with you,
what your posts will mean to them....

It's about action and reaction.
Sounds like physics, eh?

PS. On a funny note, here are all the 5 stages of a blogger's life,
and the link of the article, if you are interested!

Catch Me If You Can

This is one of my songs. It was recorded here in Brasilia with a couple of friends.
I hope you all like it! :o)

Remember that blogging is about interaction!

Do you have a blog?

Got this picture from one of Carla's posts. Hehehehe.
I guess it tells the story of what we're going through!

Welcome to my world!

Hi, everyone!

Welcome to my world.
I never thought I would start a blog, let alone two of them.
Nevertheless, here I am, taking part in this new journey with my webtools colleagues.
Please, feel welcome to make comments and participate.
Talk to you all online!
