USING SLIDESHARE WITH STUDENTS...

Slideshare for younger children (1 e 2º Ciclos) It allows storytelling. The sounds and images engage children in the natural process of language learning. It offers children the possibility of drilling naturally, repeating words and having fun. It lets children create their own material and share it with others (under teacher’s guidance to make sure their time and interaction is effective). It encourages children’s digital fluency. It allows the introduction of new vocabulary items, basic sentence structure and the understanding of accurate spelling.

NEVERTHELESS It’s a very teacher based task as they are not in control of Internet language and tools. The outcome seems more important than the process at this stage.

Slideshare for teenagers (3º Ciclo) It promotes teenagers’ creativity. They know their work is accessible online and can be downloaded. Accuracy and imagination can be key words for the success of their presentation. It is a way of sharing personal ideas, tastes and thus stimulate teenagers’ personality development and reinforce self-confidence. It allows teenagers to feel part of a larger community, whether a classroom or the world. Group work encourages them to engage in group socialization, in decision making and problem solving. It invites teenagers to comment on their peers’ work, practising oral and written skills.

AT THIS STAGE Students are learning to be self-confident, creative and independent. The teacher’s help is still needed in terms of accuracy.

Slideshare for teenagers (Ensino Secundário) It promotes intercultural knowledge. Teenagers know they can share their work and at the same time take electronic field trips that bring to their world ideas from all over the world. It allows real communication. Students can embed their presentation in their own blogs or sites and expect their peers to comment on them. Slideshare keeps track of the times someone views one’s presentation. Information is real and updated.

IN CONCLUSION Students are more independent, digital fluent and creative. The teacher is the audience, not so much part of the process. Autonomy is encouraged.
