Hello, everybody. My name is Roberta Martino and I teach English at "Losapio-S.F. Neri" school in Gioia del Colle, Italy.

Hi, my name is Livia Santini and I teach English at "A. Zappata" school, in Comacchio, Italy.

This blog is not only a diary but also a sort of magazine, with information, links, images, videos and flashcards.

An educational blog can change our students' way of express themselves. Learners are asked to leave their comments. In fact, being published is an incentive and motivation for many students. Even the most shy students might feel empowered by being able to express themselves better in a written discussion than in front of a class.
Blogs support writing, reading, listening and speaking skills . The posts are entirely in English so students can enter reflections on posted questions (by teachers), publish essays or questions and share opinions. 
You can also reach some important goals concerning technology. Students can understand the ethical, cultural, and societal issues related to technology; they can use technology tools to increase productivity and creativity; they can improve their knowledge of other disciplines through the foreign language; they can use the language both within and beyond the school and, in the end, they can start becoming life-long learners by using the foreign language for personal enjoyment and enrichment.
