I am using the projector to look at some movies both in English and Swedish. We have visit YouTube and listened to some songs in English and sing together. This is a very good way to teach the children songs in English and verbal communication.
You can also use the projector to Skype with people in another country. We have used it to talk to one of the students that have moved to
. When you use Skype you have to connect the computer to the projector and to use Skype you have to download the program. The program is free and can be downloaded on www.skype.com. The children can see the person we are talking to on the big screen when we Skype and they can also hear the person talk. This is a very good tool to use to be able to keep in touch with people that lives far away and even in another country. It doesn’t matter where you live we can always keep in touch with each other.

We also use the computer to look for English words that we are unsure of the spelling. We visit Google and look for translations from Swedish to English. In this way you, as a teacher, show the children that you can’t spell to every word in English and they will learn how to find ways to search for spellings. We also use the computer connected to the projector when we are writing together. The children see the spelling on the big screen and can spell the words right. The computer is a very good tool to use in many ways.
