Learning by twittering

Do you know what twitter is? I guess all of you know this app. Twitter is an app where you can share your ideas in 140 words. It´s clear and concise. At the same time you can follow people of your interest and get knowledge and ideas from them.

Here it is one of my tweets about CLIL:

CLIL is a educational approach in which children learn a foreign language through the content of any subject


Hello people!
When I had to start doing my mindmap I was not  sure about what were the differences between PLE (Personal Learning Environment) and PLN (Personal Learning Network). After asking the teacher and some classmates I could realize what they really mean and I started looking for the tool that I could  use to create my mindmap. I have visited and tried some tools like Popplet, but finally I have decided to use Coogle because, from my point of view, is fashion and trendy. You can use this tool to work in groups and share your work through different applications or download to keep it on your computer.
Unfortunately , I did not do my degree in English,  that´s why I am doing this Master, because I wanted to learn different methodologies for teaching English. So I started to learn about CLIL this year. As you can see in my mindmap, I have used many tools along this year. Some for sharing information, others to find the information, ideas, resources, songs, classwork.
I hope you like my work! :) 


Hello everyone!
I want to tell you about the tool that I used to do my video. I used PowToon, it is an interesting tool very easy to work with. I did´t feel very confotable at the beginning, but when I started creating my introduction it was funny and interesting.
 It has a variety of themes, characters, animations, props and backgrounds very useful. You can include music to make your video more attractive. Besides PowToon allow you to upload your own photos or music, to do your presentations more personal.
I would like to use this kind of tools more often and I´ll do it because it is worth it.
Here it is my introduction:
Thank you for your attention! smile
