EUN - Collaborative Teaching and Learning - reporting on a task

I am taking part in yet another awsome online course provided by The European Schoolnet Academy Team: Collaborative Teaching and Learning
The quality of the course's contents is enhanced by the interaction among participants. I must admit I cannot interact as much as I would like to simply because there is not enough time to do so. I do follow and react to comments whan I can, and try to complete the tasks on time.
Part of the course involves presenting some work, so as to get fellow participants t review it, and also reviewing fellow participants' work. I have reviewed three very good tasks from colleagues (two from italy and one from Portugal). It's been my pleasure to say that they have had great ideas (and well presented, too).
One of the tasks I have reviewed is from V.M. (I have not asked permission to write her name), who os an English teahers from Portugal. V. has come up with an activity that I might use with my pupils, so the course may eventually "give" me much more than I though I would (I say will) get.

The following is a link to the activity I porposed, and which I am carrying out with my pupils at Kugel High School (we have just begun). It includes reviews from peers at the EUN course

Screen recording Tools

131 teachers have enrolled in the"How to use Moodle in the English Classroom 2016 - 2017 Workshop". I hope that all of them have access to a Moodle Platform at school because we at Pisga Holon cannot provide them with one. While the aim was to have 100 participants, Pisga decided to let more in because we want to make sure that many participants complete the course successfully. There was a need to close registration many days ago. I am getting information as from where participants come from (schools and city/town/ willage where people live). From what I know now, people live in 53 different towns/ cities/ villages all over Israel. I also understand that there is a waiting list for the course, which means more English teachers would like to learn in English how to use Moodle. The platform is available in many schools, so these schools do not have to invest money to help teachers teach differently, and students learn differently. During the workshop, participants will use Moodle with their pupils and document their work using screen capture / screen recording tools to share their work. This is the tutorial I have shared with them when we are a bit more than a week the workshop opens.
