ABOUT ME, ABOUT US
WELCOME TO OUR BLOG!!
I’m Carmen Gómez Benítez and I work at the state school of languages in Valencia (EOI VALENCIA-ZAIDIA) . I´ve been teaching English for quite a LONG, LONG time . When teaching had become a matter of routine I needed something else to encourage me and my students to move forward …. and it was then when I found you: “Mr BLOG” which hopefully will still add spice to my teaching. In times of Covid 19 it was a great tool together with videoconferences to keep on teaching so as not to let any of my students fall behind.
Now that COLLABORATIVE LEARNING , E-LEARNING, M-LEARNING and the widespread use of social networks are part of our everyday life, using blogs makes sense more than ever…..as students can share resources and information, evaluate one another´s ideas and monitor one another´s work among many other things….
LEARNING IS ALSO REFLECTING ON OUR PERSONAL LEARNING PROCESSES, SO I´M NOW WORKING ON MY PERSONAL LANGUAGE ENVIRONMENT (PLE) TO HELP MY STUDENTS THINK ABOUT THEIR OWN ….
“Variety is the spice of life” means that it´s good to try and do different things . Variety, if added to our teaching, could have the same effect of a spice and enhance our everyday classes—- Life and “teaching” are much more interesting when you try to do things in different ways. Variety is they key spice which adds flavour to life, and so to both the teaching and learning processes.
PEOPLE SAY THAT “TOO MANY COOKS SPOIL THE BROTH” …..
HOWEVER I BELIEVE IN COLLABORATIVE LEARNING AND I EXPECT TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON. ANY CONTRIBUTION OR COMMENT WILL BE WELCOME!
SO,ADD YOUR OWN SPICE TO YOUR ENGLISH AND LET´S START BLOGGING!!!
