Hah - rain at last!! I saw a rainbow on my way home from work this afternoon & nearly drove off the road - it was so beautiful & it's so long since I've seen one! Sadly, I didn't have my camera, so I couldn't get a photo ...
This Saturday is the second workshop for this semester for technology & second language learning - should be fun! ... hard work, but fun :-) Wonder what food I should bring for morning & afternoon tea (read: energy boosts) this time ...?

The first workshop seemed to go well - lots of students & everyone has created their own blogs & posted something on the wiki site, so we're moving! Some people don't seem to have adopted their blogs as their own yet, but we have a drop-in session this afternoon, so I hope to spread some enthusiasm then ...

The first assignment is a webquest & I don' t think many people have actually read up on what exactly a webquest is or how to create one - so I'm expecting lots of questions this afternoon! I'll have to draw their attention to the webquest worksheet & the readings on that, as well as Atomic Learning & the Dreamweaver tutorials. Lots of fun & exploration ahead!

So, this morning is the first workshop for my new semester of technology & L2 students. I'm excited and anxious at the same time ... how well will they respond? Will they enjoy the classes? Will they be able to find & learn to use good tools that will help them in their current or future teaching?

I'm looking forward to showing them some of the great software that is out there now & helping them understand how to use it ... so we shall see how this semester develops ... ?! :-)
