Wonderful party on SmallWorlds today (Screenshots)

Our Xmas virtual party was a great success today! There was a variety of cakes, a Christmas turkey, plenty of drinks, fireworks, and snowballs! We danced a lot, we had a snowball fight, we wrote wishes on the walls, and we watched videos from students & tutors on the FlipGrid. By the way, the FlipGrid is still open, so you still have the chance to take part and leave your Christmas message (or song!!!). Students from all three cohorts popped in and enjoyed the event making it very special!
Below you can see a collection of pictures from the event (feel free to download and share on social media):

Again, thank you all for your participation :-)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Screenshots from today's tutorial on SmallWorlds

This week's tutorial for the Introduction to Digital Technologies for Language Teaching module has been held on SmallWorlds. The tutorial started with a dancing activity under the sounds of popular international songs. Next, students and tutors discussed about the affordances of Virtual Worlds for language teaching and learning and finally they played word games. During the tutorial several guests popped in, while some of them contributed to the discussion too. All in all it was a great tutorial; thank you all for your participation!
