Four years ago, I took a webtool course and for our first task, we had to make an introduction of ourselves by using a webtool. I´m used to drawing and using images, but at the time, I wanted to do something new, so I wrote a song about my teaching experience with digital tools in class. I posted this video as “private” but I realize now it should have been posted as “public”. Well, better late than never. Anyways, I decided to share it with you just for the fun of it.
“POSSIBILITIES” (By Cleide Nascimento)
My name is Cleide and I’ve been an EFL teacher for twenty one years now
And in case you’re wondering…yes, I’ve had a blast!
Never before did I consider using technology in class
But something happened, things changed
All of a sudden I had available in my classroom
A computer, data show, and a flashdrive
In addition to all these things, I was introduced to webtools
I was so overwhelmed, but eventually, I got the hang of it!
I got the hang of it! I got the hang of it!
With the passing of time, I’ve come to realize
And got so excited about all the things that I can do!
I’m really excited about the possibilities!
There are so many possibilities!
My classes won’t ever be the same with all the possibilities
With all the things that I can do! With all the things that we will do!
I will be a better teacher using webtools!
