involved me at the beginning trying to understand the weekly assignments, readings, tasks and weekly discussions, however now I feel proud thinking how much I have learned from the course. I have to say that the past nine weeks have been a great opportunity to learn a great deal of online resources, techniques , strategies and other meaningful tools that are going to help make my English classes more effective . I have learned a lot about nicenet, blogs, webquest, rubrics and sites to practice listening, reading , writing and even speaking, Making comments and reflecting about topics related with teaching and learning pedagogy were appropriate to learn how to overcome possible issues or difficulties on our students performance. Reading my peers comments, thoughts, opinions and insights has been so constructive to expand my knowledge, apply new practices and do the best in my everyday work. All the material and the information provided thought the links were quite meaningful in order to incorporate the new computer based tools and make the best use of the technology in class. With the purpose to build a new learning environment, the use of some tools like emails, blogs, webquest , audio labs, interactive power point presentations in a one computer classroom have been already introduced and incorporated in my classes and as a response students feel quite motivated to work using online activities and exploring tools that have not been used before.
This webskills course has been the best opportunity I’ve ever had thanks to University of Oregon and the American English Institute for this wonderful experience. I am so exited to share all this knowledge with my future students and with my English colleagues at the whole school.
