Rethinking our roles as teachers is a necessary exercise in this connected world. However, changing OUR WAYS is not easy. Besides facing limitations such as a set syllabus, we also have own beliefs as a barrier to accepting change. In this session, I intend to share a project being developed with my own students this semester where students are invited to reflect about the necessary language to produce digital content using language creatively. I’ll be explaining how I proposed the project, the initial steps, the activities we developed in class, the tasks proposed and will finally show some of the material produced by the students.
