300 pages for Students and Teachers of English

The most important aims we had in mind when we decided to create this website were:

To learn about and use new teaching techniques and resources.
To suggest new ways of teaching English that take advantage of current communication and information technological advances and to integrate them in the educational curricula of the Education Department of Andalucia Autonomous Government (Spain).
To pay due attention to students’ diversity by adapting the curriculum to their different needs and learning processes, thus implementing more personalized teaching techniques.
To help students develop autonomous learning techniques through the building up of new skills and study habits.
To improve EFL teaching and learning by incorporating new technologies on a regular basis.
To establish a solid foundation for collaborative projects with teachers of other school subjects, in the same school or with other schools in Spain or abroad.
To enable students to familiarize themselves with multimedia software and Internet tools (especially the web, e-mail and ftp), while using English as a means of communication.
To use resources available on the Internet in order to foster the practice of English. There exist websites with practical information that can be used in TEFL classes: grammar practice, mailing lists, listening activities, reading, etc.
To teach students how to use browsers, navigate through the web and reach the information they need. The Internet contains authentic material that can be used in a wide variety of project works.
To make students aware that the information available on the Internet can help them in planning their own professional or academic future. There exists a myriad of websites created by universities and private firms.
To gather a series of multimedia grammar exercises for self-study and self-correction.
To develop good group-work habits in students and teachers through the use of the same or similar resources and the subsequent information and experience exchange with other students in the same or a different school.

Dave's Email Exchange

There are generally two email exchange programs to consider. A class project in which you work in tandem with another class interested in email exchange, possibly English-Spanish, and the other is to just let the students search out an email pal for themselves. This site will do the latter task well enough.
