Let’s sum up

I must say that I have learnt quite a number of things in the brief period of this course.
I have learnt how to use news tools from Microsoft Word and Powerpoint. What's more, I have learnt how to deliver a Power Point presentation in only 3 minutes!
In adition to that, I now know how to differntiate between a serious and reliable web site from one which is untrustworthy. This, I consider, is vital when Googling for information to use in our classes.

This subject has helped me realised that no matter how much you think you know about something, there's always something new, there is always a catch.
I believe this subject is essential for any teacher. If you take into account that our students were born already immersed in a techy World, teachers need to keep up with them and become an active member of the technological World.
As American writer Stewart Brand once said, “Once a new technology rolls over you, if you're not part of the steamroller, you're part of the road.”
