This week was very rewarding for me. I started reading all the comments and recommendations made for our partners, and taking into account these comments and making some improvements I finally completed the final project report in which I had to specify some categories like the learners, sitting, the goals of the course, the students needs, issue and problem that started my project, initial solution and expected response, response and reflection, changes made, conclusion and resources. It was a nice experience to make know all the activities and the new online application we have done in classroom and how technology can be used to facilitate and get an enjoyable learning environment. Reading our peers comments and also some insights of other projects I have increased even more the expectation to use new online resources in classroom. I have to say that reading the weekly discussions and comments has been a really meaningful experience. I have learned a lot from my partners ideas and thoughts, and I am sure I will apply and share all these ideas and knowledge in my future classes, and with all my English colleagues in the school.
The discussion for this week was related with learning styles and the relationship to technology and after reading the material provide for this week I'd like to comment that it was really meaningful to learn more about the 7 intelligences that Howard Gardner developed as a practical way to address individual differences and that we as teachers need to know to help our students become more successful while learning a second language. It is so important to recognize the intelligences that our students have to design in this way a range of activities and tasks for them and chose the best online resources according to their abilities and preferences. We have to know this not with the idea to treat each students separately, but most the time with the idea to combine the resources and give the opportunity to make all of them shine in what they actually can and like to do.
