This is the best time in history to be a teacher.

     Dear colleagues
     I have always wanted to share insights and ideas with fellow teachers. This is after all, the essence of our profession, sharing stuff with our students and each other. The power of Internet (and surely, rarely has the word “power” been used more aptly before) enables me to do so in two ways: Firstly, it enables me to reach out to a wider audience and you, in turn are free to forward this material to others should you find it worthy. Secondly, with its endless variety of resources, it provides us with inexhaustible high quality material, directly or indirectly meant for teaching.
     This is indeed the best time to be a teacher. Technology empowers us in ways never imagined before and all we have to do is tap into its vast potential and build a lesson around it. We don’t have to be all that experienced either. One word of warning and you’re ready to go: select your material, whether it is a video, a song, an article or an image, review it carefully (you don’t want to be surprised or embarrassed if your YouTube sequence takes an unexpected twist) and attach an educational objective to it, as well as the appropriate tasks.
     This is in a nutshell the structure of the newsletter you are currently reading: every week I will give you a number of teaching materials of various types: an article, a grammar exercise, a vocabulary list or exercise, some kids’ craft, a drawing lesson (they are enormous fun and can be used at any level!), a video and a recipe (cooking is my passion).
     You will also be receiving information about my training seminars, (i.e. subject, venue, duration, cost, perks) and the CD-ROMs released by my publishing section, Flexible Multimedia. Other features will be added later. You are very welcome to contribute ideas. At any point you can unsubscribe although I wholeheartedly hope you won’t. So, welcome to the first issue of “The Fun of Teaching”. Educate, entertain, enjoy, innovate, share and don’t forget to be awesome.
