My name is Thaís. I am really glad of these weeks we will share, hoping to learn more about teaching and learning the English language. have a few comments to make about myself. For instance, I am from Brazil, where we only speak Portuguese as our official language. I am an English and a French teacher also graduated in Translation and Law. I work for the local government in Brasília, the capital of my country. I have worked with videos in my classes since 2011, but I started attending online classes about educational tools and media in general in 2007. I am developing a project on ICTs, GISARTE, at the high school where I teach English, Centro Educacional Gisno, and at Centro Interescolar de Línguas 1 de Brasília, where I teach French. In 2012 I worked together with the British Council ( Connecting Classrooms Program ) and the Adobe Foundation ( Adobe Youth Voices ) on video projects and critical literacy.
