I like working with Edmodo. This site gives a nice opportunity for work in a group, for introducing themselves and for having a protection ( it's also very important in the Internet).
These are the sites that can help to tell about your biography. As for me, I really like "aboutme" and "flavours.me". They seem easy to use even for 10 year old students and they are easy to work with.
"animoto" is a nice site, haivng many ways of presenting the information.

After learning the table of this site, I would like to say that
this matrix embraces all the levels of computer-based learning. The value of this table is in the prospects it gives: next steps are pointed out and a detailed description of the steps can be used as a guideline for the development of using digital tools in the classroom. I candefine the level of my students as between adoption and adaptation level. They are active enough, but it's necessary to chage the whole attitude towards lesson planning in order to organize an adaptation level of learning.
I would like to move to the infusion level.
The lesson plan:
