Summer+Books = Paradise

Hey there!
If you're an avid reader I want to tell you these summer holidays I'm reading The Illustrated man, by Ray Badbury. I strongly recommend it. It's a book of eighteen sci-fiction and fantasy stories. You will have the honor of reading these stories thanks to a tattooed man- The Illustrated man- who carries the stories everywhere he goes. And you will be amazed by the restless stories in his skin!


How is the Internet changing language today?

This time I'm sharing a really interesting piece of information. Professor David Crystal talks about how different technologies have changed language throught years.
Grammar, vocabulary, punctuation change and this is very important for the teachers of the 21st century!


The science of laziness and the science of productivity

Ugh! It's October and we're really tired, but what if most of the time wedon't feel like doing anything?
In the first video, Asap Science describes the 'couch potato' gene .

On the other hand, the second video is about how to be productive. It may be easier than you think! You just have to get started!


Multiple Intelligences

Hi there!
Here I leave a short video about the Multiple Intelligences.
The multiple intellgences are highly important in our classrooms to know in which way our students learn better. You also have to know which intelligences you combine to approach the world.
Which kind of intelligences do you own?


Are you a right-brained person? Are you creative? do you love poetry, freedom and passion?
Are you a left-brained person? Are you logical? Analytic?
Take this test and know yourself a little bit more.
I have already tested myself and the result was: Both your right and left hemisphere seem to have reached a level of perfect harmony - rather than trying to dominant each other, they work together to create a unique and well-balanced "you" (...)



Happy Teacher's day!

When I was in second year, our English and its teaching teacher shared with our class an indelible quote by Haim G. Ginott, which I now want to share with you:

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”

Hope you never forget it!


Are you in your element?


In this video, Sir Ken Robinson (English author, speaker and expert on education, creativity and innovation) describes the way we feel when we are in our element and enjoy what we do.
Do you do what you love? Do you feel energetic? focused? or do you feel distracted and irritated?
Are you in your element?
