Technology and young learners - thoughts,ideas and resources

This past semester a dear workmate called Cleide Frazão and I carried out a piloting project at the school we work for. Here is our workshop in brief. Focusing on using web2.0 in a systematized way throughout the semester, make the most of it and do not get stressed out.
Cleide and I are not the savvy type, we have been just starting our digital literacy program, and we both still wonder when the old days of chalk and blackboard will spin back in vogue. But we both share a love for pedagogy, for understanding how our young learners learn best. Technology offers us a broad horizon of possibilities to reach out, engage students in writing and connect with families. Here is our workshop on different media. Choose the one that pampers your reading style best.

About Prezi
Spent all morning learning how to deal wit prezi editor. I had seen it once - no idea where- and I have to confess it was a bit too all over the place for me until I saw this wonderful presentation on EFL Classroom 2.0.My advice if you will prezi soon: Watch the tutorial beforehand and choose the constrain to back and forward move when you embed. ( if you are kind of a linear kind, like me).

About voicethread
I decided to upload the workshop on voicethread and post on the project's wiki. This is our paperless, green way to connect with the audience for further discussion and feedback.
I am in love with this tool! It provides us the chance of extending our learning opportunities... Amazing!
