Will you consider including synchronous tools in your future EFL classroom in Saudi Arabia? Will there be any drawbacks?
Synchronous tools allow actual communication and collaboration with the teacher and their students. I think that I will use synchronous tools in my future EFL classroom because this tools helps me and my students to make the teaching or learning process become easy. Also, I will choose the suitable tools for my students to improve them in their learning. I think these tools important for learning the language . The learning of language depends on communication between teacher and students. Then, students with each other.There are a lot of synchronous tools like Yahoo, MSN…etc, which have advantage and disadvantage. They are free and easy way for teachers to bring in their classroom and their students.
In my opinion, I feel that there are some negative aspects in using these tools in Saudi Arabia. One of these aspects which is, the wrong using of these tools ,such as ;to show of that you have this and that and you know a lot of technologies , or to use these tools in break or make some damages to others without any reason. But , I hope that we will change soon in a excellent using of these tools.
