Postscript: aspirations of a teacher-in-training:

Postscript: aspirations of a teacher-in-training On the following slide you will see a comment from a discussion in one of our Facebook groups from a teacher-in-training about to graduate and look for a job teaching. Note that the desire to use Web2.0 tools isn’t technology-driven. It’s based on providing the best learning experience possible in and outside the class.

A teacher-in-training writes about using Facebook in teaching::

A teacher-in-training writes about using Facebook in teaching: I hope that I can have this experience because i really want to use such [Web2.0] tools if i will be a teacher. Because I had difficulties of not doing exercises in classrooms hocam . When i was in high school, we, as all students, wanted teacher to do some practise to understand the subject better, but our teacher responded as we didn't have time to do so as he needed to catch up the syllabus. Therefore, i don't want my students to encounter such problems.
