It’s been more than a year now since I started English and Film as an online resource tool for everyone learning about film and media in English and I’m very pleased about the wonderful feedback I’ve received from you, whether in the frorm of comments or in classes.
Since the beginning, I’ve made many gradual changes to the layout, content and organisation of the blog, so that it would be easier for you to find what you were looking for.
Still, I’ve often felt that the blog wasn’t anywhere near to what I imagined it to be yet, that the potential for your effective language learning thanks to it wasn’t fulfilled.
Now I have a new vision for the blog and, hopefully, with your help, it will get closer to reaching the potential and will become a much more employed tool in our English classes.
A look ahead
What it means is that I’ll integrate many activities online with our activities in the classroom. In other words, we will make use of Web 2.0 tools in the classroom, as well as outside it to give you a much more enjoyable and whole experience with English.
There are, of course, more reasons why I want to do this, one of the most important ones beeing the fact that social media is not a Fad, but a great revolution, and knowing how to use them greatly increases your chances to connect with the world and succeed in what you do:
With this in mind, I’ll introduce a couple of changes to our curriculum and to the blog itself – it will take time for everything to be up and running, but when it is, we’ll have a lot to enjoy.
Stay tuned for more details.
