Rita Zeinstejer live session On Google apps in the classroom
We just had an amazing live event with Rita Zeinstejer, 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, she has been the CALL SIG Coordinator in her area for 7 years now.
In her usual sparkly manner she led us through several ways to use Google apps 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 supplications that Google has created to use for free with our students.
She took us from iGoogle to Google Buzz passing by Google Wave, Google Live Stories and Google Knol which is still in beta version giving examples of the use of the tools to enhance course content, create a warm learning environment and engage the students. Her ideas are brilliant!
There were several questions asked by teachers all over the world, Rita answered them all in very clear terms, all participants felt time fly away.
If you didn’t have the chance to be there live or you want to have a look at it once more, visit Rita's session wiki page, you'll find the recording here.
Thanks Rita, it’s BaW tradition to have you closing this session, we’re blessed for that. To all participants... a big round of applause. You’re less than 24 hours away from Becoming a Webhead!
We’d love to read your comments about the session, they have great value for us.
