TeachingEnglish
Playing in the virtual sandbox

When we create a blog or a wiki for students, our aim is to help them learn outside the classroom and become more independent in learning: we add useful links to practice grammar, consult a dictionary, improve skills. Students do the assignments and then they look for some online fun. I think it is a good idea to offer some fun activities that in students' eyes don't look like lessons, but being in English and appropriate for their age and level, help them improve their English without noticing it. These are some fun activities I offered on a class wiki:  

 I mentioned the fun page to the students. Now I listen carefully to their comments and add a new activity from time to time.
