Rita Zeinstejer on Google Applications in the Classroom
Today, Rita Zeinstejer was our wonderful grand finale guest speaker at Webheads in Action Elluminate virtual room hosted by Learning Times.
Rita is a resourceful EFL teacher at the Association Rosarina de Cultura Inglesa in Argentina where she set up both the Self Access and the Multimedia Centre eight years ago.
In her usual sparkly manner she led us through several ways to use Google applications and sites in the classroom giving us examples of her own work, tips and great ideas to use those applications with our students. The presentation looked at all the applications that Google has created to use for free with our students.
She took us from Google Docsto Google Sites, iGoogle and Google Tours passing by Google Earth, Google Reader, Google Knol, as well as Google Sketch Up, Google Scholar, Google Around and even Google Goggles and Google Body Browser, giving examples of the use of the tools to enhance course content, create a warm learning environment and engage the students.
Her ideas are so brilliant, versatile and challenging that all participants felt time simply flew away.
Thank you Rita, it’s BaW tradition to have you closing this session. To all participants... a big round of applause. You’re on the last 100 meters of Becoming a Webhead! We’d love to read your comments about the session, they have great value for us.
