PPT has been explored by several researchers and teachers as ICT tool in effective teaching. In the classroom enviornment, we can have immence opportunities in using video, audio, graphics, images, charts etc through ppt slides. Movies, plays, audio recitation of poems, graphical presentation of parts of speech and other grammar activities can be used in remarkably exceptional way.
Well, if this classroom-ICT-tool is synergised with web-ICT-tool, it can help us in exploring wider horizons. Now, let me come to the website about which I skipped writing earlier. The site is welknown and most of you must be using it. http://www.slideshare.net/. This site gives us free space to upload our ppt presentations. Well, that is not as important as what else it does. It helps us to embed ppt presentation from slideshare.net to http://www.blogger.com/. It is this synergy between the classroom tool and web tool which gives us immence opportunity to explore wider vistas in ELT.
Here are the links given to some of the examples of such synergy.
