My two Wiziq sessions - May 26 and 27 2015

Moodle for Special Education - Wiziq Webinar



Hi! Following is the description of the session as it appears on Wiziq:

"About the class

This webinar is hosted in English.


  Eduardo Lina will discuss “The Road Taken”: Moodle for High School Special Education Pupils - The Kugel High School in Holon (Israel) Experience 

 This session will share how I exploit Moodle to provide engaging materials in different formats (written text, audio, video, images, etc.) for my High School Special Education students,both to teach English and prepare as many of them as possible for Israel’s Matriculation exams."

I hope that I have managed to convey what I wanted to. Thanks again to Nellie Deutch.








The recording s are usually viewed by lots of people, just like I usually do since I tend to watch sessioms even a long time after they have taken place. People share a lot!

Creative Use of Tablets - Finished!

Tour Builder - Escuelas gemelas

Ayer participé en la última clase virtual del curso "Escuelas gemelas" en hebreo. Tuvo muchas cosas buenas el curso, y otras que seguramente van a ser mejores en el curso en español sobre el cual quienes lo preparan ya están, valga la redundancia, preparando. El tema es interesante, y creo que lograr enlaces e tre alumnos / as de nuestras escuelas en Israel con sus pares de la Diáspora es bueno por muchas razones (una de ellas, para estudiar y practicar español). El curso es importante pues sirve para saber cómo encarar el tema, qué hacer, y como colaborar. En mi caso, estoy tratando de llevar a cabo un contacto con una Comunidad que no tiene escuela secundaria. En el curso aprendí a usar unas cuantas aplicaciones muy buenas, las cuales compartiré como participante en el curso. Por ejemplo, para enganchar a quienes participan, hice esto que agrego a continuación (pero lo del viaje no es más que algo imaginario, aclaro)

20.05.2015 - Documenting the Breaking Stereotypes Project

Human nature being what it is, whether we acknowledge it or not, we tend to think using stereotypes, don't we? Well, at Kugel High School in Holon, having taught "Mr. Know-All" in our 10th grade 5 point classes, we teachers decided to get our pupils to work on a Mini-project called "Breaking Stereotypes". You see, there are stereotypes for teachers, pupils, Jewish Settlers, Ashkenazi and Sefaradi Jews, Arabs, football players, Hapoel Holon Basketball fans (I am one of them), and the like, so I have let my pupils work in groups or on their own to choose and break a stereotype. Since I am the stereotype of a teacher who is crazy about Moodle and using new technologies when teaching, I have got my pupils to carry out an entirely digital project. They are at it, and I have been documenting what they have done so far. .
