On 21 September 2010 Senior English Language Fellow, Thomas C. Tasker, a grantee of the U.S. State Department program and the technology group met at the English Teaching Resource Center (JCD ETRC) at the English Department of National University of "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy" to discuss projects the members of the group are going to do with their students this fall.
We are members of this group and will collaborate on how to best implement our Troyeshchyna Gymnasium Project.
This is Mr Tasker's list of links students might use in their work
A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate pages and leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.

Today on 19 October the new technology group met at the English Teaching Resource Center (JCD ETRC) at the English Department of National University of "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in order to present an overview of their projects to members of the group.
I told the participants about the idea of creating Students' blogs-portfolios and the first steps of my students. Ms Savchenko told about topic blogs she would like to create with her students.
Mr Tasker liked our students' blogs and said that they looked great!!!
