I am for the implementation of ICT in sound, well planned lesson plans because that's what I want the teachers who teach my kids to do. I want them to communicate, share, produce and collaborate, bu I also want them to have more traditional classes in order to become well- informed and knowledgeable. I believe I am most of the time in stages 1 and 2, but I'd like to have my students in stage 3 more often. What stops me? Well... tight schedules, slow connection just to name some of the challenges I have to face, but I know that there are great collaborative projects going on right now that are just some clicks away. I wouldn't have to do much, because they are already in progress, happening and gainning momentum as I write about them. I decided to make a list, and hopefully engage, and have my students do the same. I hope this list is useful for you too.
