thanks for this new opportunity! This year I'm teaching EFL in a class of students who can use a tablet each (Android). I'd like to know more from other colleagues who already have some experience and, in particular, can share…"
"Thanks Dduebel, this is a great idea! When school starts again in September, it will be a lovely activity to practise English with students!
Could you please help me find the transcript of the latest episodes above? I can't find them..."
So sorry I didn't get to replying to your email yet! I found out about your great wiki from Classroom 2.0. It was posted as part of a great discussion about good examples of teacher driven educational sites.
I really like your site because it focuses on activities students can do at home, for practice. It extends the classroom which is precisely the point of technology I think....
I'll make a post about your site today and also add it to our blog member directory - lots of fine pages there!
Happy New Year and welcome to EFL Classroom 2.0! I hope you'll find a great "home" for learning and teaching. I look forward to your own contribution here. By sharing and learning from one another, all our jobs get easier.
Make sure you introduce yourself in our "introduce yourself" forum! Find others with common interests and Make Pals by inviting members to be your friend! And if you want, show others where you are from on the Frappr map.
When you have a moment, personalize your homepage, click around and see a lot of great videos, presentations, links to resources (games/readers/karaoke) pics and music. Share in the forums and put up or link to your own blog. Check out our great Buzka library of links. You have unlimited photo storage and can make your own albums and slideshows. Even chat to my double, Dave the "bot".
Join a “classroom” that interests you or form your own! Also, Ning offers a multiple login feature so that you can register a class page and all your students/faculty can access through the same pw/id and use the content. You can even start your own classroom here for your students in our groups.
In the new year, an improved resource site with everything for teaching will arrive –
Please take a look at the EFL FAQ link on the main page.

Most of all, keep sharing and discussing. By contributing your expertise with the community you make all our jobs easier, better.
