Your first article!

Congratulations, your blogs look great now!! But they are so empty!

Today, you will start writing your first article on one of these topics:

  • Teenagers vs adults. Reasons for conflict.
  • Nature, environment, ecology... (What should we do to keep it safe? What dangers do we see? What could we do in our everyday life?... etc.)
  • Travelling in Europe or around the world. Tell us about any foreign country you have been to (why do you recommend it or why you don't), or if you haven't been to any, tell us which one you would like to visit and why.
  • Musical instruments, music genres or music groups. (Why you have decided to talk about this, personal opinion about everything, recommendations, ...)
  • Cultural differences in the world (religious differences, shocking traditions, women around the world, children around the world...)
  • Economic crisis: How does it affect your people? Have you noticed it? What could we do about it? What suggestions would you make to European politicians? or any other questions related to the issue.
  • Refugees and immigrants. It is a hot issue nowadays.

Your article should include a bit of factual information (objective information) about the topic BUT SPECIALLY a personal view of the topic: your opinion about that information, or your personal experience, ...

You will never use other people's information as if it was yours. You will provide links to all the sources you use.

Take some time today to think

 and decide on the topic you will choose, surf the net to get ideas... and once your decision has been made, send me an email and tell me about it.

You will have 3 or 4 days to do this task (it will depend on how busy you are, of course!).  Google translation tools are not recommended.

Create a group of contacts in Gmail

Hi, In our first class you completed a form about your ICT competence, and you also told me what your email address is.

Now, we will create a group of contacts where we will include all the members of the class, including the teacher. My address is:

There are different ways of creating a group of contacts, but this is probably the easiest one:
  • I will send you an email with the addresses of all the members of the class.
  • Copy these addresses.
  • Then go to contacts.
  • Create a new group. Call it ICT students
  • Open the group, and click on "add contacts". Paste all the addresses in the window that appears, and your group will be created. Don't forget to include me in the group.

How far can you get with ICT?
