Some questions were unanswered in the webinar, but I’m trying to answer them here. Give me some time and all unanswered questions will be covered.
Please, do leave your comments below!

What about a wiki?
It’s another good option. If you feel comfortable with wikis, it’s great! Virtual Learning Environments are like textbooks: there’s no perfect textbook, but you feel more comfortable with a particular publisher. If it fits your needs and your students needs, go ahead!
What about parental permisson? 17:25
I've been thinking about doing this for a long time, what about families and images from our students? 17:41
Right, it’s something to take into consideration. In our school we ask for parental permission TO PUBLISH STUDENTS PHOTOS AND PUBLISH DIGITAL MATERIALS THEY PRODUCE when they sign the registration form in June/July. If a family doesn’t allow it, so this kid doesn’t appear in digital publications that can be seen from outside the school (e.g Blogger) We must respect people’s rights, of course.

how are the students supposed to do the videos, with their mobile phones? 17:41
I love this question, Elisa: most kids own a powerful mobile phone with video camera, why don’t we use it in our ELT class? They love using it, and saves money buying video cameras!!! Digital Cameras also record decent quality videos. My suggestion: if you can afford it, buy a FLIPCAM http://support.theflip.com/en-us/home , cheap, REALLY EASY TO USE-BELIEVE ME-, and with a very simple software to edit and share your videos. You can get a Flipcam at www.fnac.es
Ipods and Ipads are excellent as well, but more expensive.
Are these oxford resources free?
Yes, most online resources are free, and the ones at the OXFORD WEBSITE http://elt.oup.com/learning_resources/?cc=global&selLanguage=en&mode=hub
Are absolutely excellent!

Enjoy this presentation of a 2010 seminar I gave in Barcelona. It's focused on Digital Textbooks, but it also gives general advice on using ICT in your ELT class.
A lot of interesting websites are recommended.
Don't forget to post your comments! ;)
This is the presentation I used in the Oxford Webinar "FIRST STEPS INTO THE DIGITAL CLASSROOM"
Feel free to comment on the presentation!
