A word that kept recurring during Wired In or Out and is encouraging and motivating I think, is communities. This session by Osman Çeviktay included it in the title – what could be better?
Osman teaches EFL at Yıldız University and incorporates technology avidly in his courses. During his session, he stressed that the use of technology is highly conducive to students learning the language more effectively.
He uses all sorts of internet tools in his lessons – PowerPoint, flash games and files and wikis, such as pbworks.
Osman believes that by establishing online communities, the learning experience is enriched for the students.
