By making the Project, I reflected what I've got during these 9 weeks. There are some tasks I've done and it gives me some confidence.
discussion we discussed issues related with multiple intelligences. There is a
topic about handwriting. In
Japan, many elementary students learn calligraphy (it is regarded as an art)
because we should write words beautifully in my culture. Naturally, handwriting
is encouraged by teachers, until the end of high school. Yes, it’s very
old-fashioned and I don’t think it is bad. Yet, I think students need to use
other different tool, a computer, too. In most places in the world, now people
use both handwriting and computer. Why should they learn only by a pencil and a
notebook? We, teachers need to use computer as a tool and show them by teaching
in any subject. English, why not? English class will open the door to a broad
world. Then it is not unusual to teach English using a computer, which will
broaden students’ world. If we, teachers, cannot use a computer effectively in
class, there is no choice. However if we can, we can choose when and where we
use the tool. That’s the point, I think.
