I've been teaching for more than 30 years and I've always been trying to improve my teaching methods for my students' benefit.
During the recent years we are experiencing a revolution in everything through the use of technology which has given us the opportunity to create material and publish it online. Searching different tools to help me update my lessons
I came across clubEFL about 5 years ago. What I saw then was more than I could understand and it took me some time to realise how powerful this platform was. At the same time clubEFL was being updated all the time to include whatever new was available on the web. Now I believe that it is unique, offering teachers and students more than they could imagine.
This is our own area where we can make quizzes, lessons, blogs, communicate with our students and their parents, send them their homework or messages, read what they have written and correct it online, chat or use the material which is already there and much more…. and all this in a safe environment with no ads which could cause different problems…
The teachers have been trained and despite their first opposition to doing extra things, they finally realised what an asset this is for their teaching and how privileged they are to use Web2 instead of just inserting a CD in the computer.
Our clients, parents and students, are very impressed by what we do, they trust us and they realise that we are ahead of the others-they have learned what using technology in teaching means and feel confident for their choice. They spend time with their children doing quizzes or reading and listening to stories during the weekend and they enjoy every minute of it.
Our most recent project is our classes' blogs, where students publish their own material using English outside the classroom in a very creative way-and all teachers know what creativity can do for their students!
In my school we know that we are offering the best educational tools to our students and teachers and we cannot imagine our classes without clubEFL: it is easy, safe, creative, entertaining, revolutionary!!!
