About the technology course


I am very satisfy with the results of this course since I learned a little bit of everything. As future teachersis very important for us to know about every single tool available to improve our way of teaching. Technology is nowadays part of our lives, why not to take advantange of it? Lets use wikis, blogs, forums, slide share presentations, cmaps, moviemaker, youtube, educatico, moodle, EBSCO, google docs, hot potatoes, among many other applications we have access to. Lets motivate our students by having more dynamic lessons thanks to technology and media. If these tools are around there we have to use them, and even better, lets create our own didactical material with them as well. There are no excuses to be a poor teacher. Even though some institutions do not have the needed resources at class, we still can use them. Don´t limitate yourself because the following ecuation is your best tool:

YOUR MIND + TECHNOLOGY = FUN AND CREATIVE LEARNING.
