The Travelling Teachers
This educational blog was born in September 2013 and it was born for EFL students. I wanted them to study in deep some aspects of a foreign culture in an enjoyable and more interactive way, as they are “digital natives”. This blog is not only a diary but also a sort of magazine, with information, links, images, videos and flashcards. Learners are asked to leave their comments, in fact being published is an incentive and motivation for many students. A blog support writing, reading, listening and speaking skills so the posts are entirely in English and students can enter reflections on questions posted by the teacher, publish essays and share opinions. Every post ends with one or more questions or tasks. With a blog you can also reach some important goals concerning technology itself as students can understand some cultural and ethical issues related to technology; they can use technology tools to increase their creativity and productivity; they can study topics concerning other subjects through the foreign language (CLIL); they can start becoming life-long learners by using the foreign language for personal enrichment. Over time this blog has also became a blog for teachers. Of course they can use and share all the contents but I have recently begun to write some posts about new digital tools for education. I try them and post the final result as an example, so it is easier for teachers to choose the most suitable for them and save time!
