The Webinar " Spice Up your Lessons with interactive Tools" was presented by Sibel Taskin Simsek on 4th August. I was on line and I could appreciate the activity presented by her.
I connected with the speaker and people who were online but I was not able to try Neapord. What I saw online was a short introduction to what you can do and I really liked the idea of creating lessons which can be reached by using any device from tablets, to smartphones and computers.
I am familiar with Edpuzzle but I thought that it was a good idea to present this tool as it offers many features. Flipping lessons by using this powerful tool for showing videos with questions can really help language learners , and not only language learners.
I had no specific questions when watching the webinar , I only thought that today technology can empower teachers who can personalize learning and focus on skills which were neglected in the past .
The content was related to my EFL activities as I have already started to work in a blended learning way.
When I saw the presentation I thought that today we can do more and work better , as a result learners can achieve their goals. I felt happy and I liked the idea of seeing what language input can be offerred now , while in the past we worked only with texts and the students' interaction was always neglected .
I will try to use Neapord and will continue using Edpuzzle as it is one of my favourite tools. I will also try to teach how to use them in my school as most of the educators I work with are not familiar with them or are afraid of technology.
The next challenges are just a few: I will continue working on web 2.0 tools and will discover new ones.
In the future I would like to continue my search into new tools like these ones as my students need more interaction and also more ways for doing listening exercises when working from home.
I have no questions to aks but I would say that it would be nice to have some more webinars like the one we saw as it was simple and easy to follow and we could interact together .
Thanks to Sebel!!
