The final date to decide the new 7 wonders of the world is close, 7 july. So, this topic can be a good excuse to use English in the classroom. My friend Meme sent me the link of the web site dedicated to school projects about these 7new wonders.
There you can find even a WebQuest .

By the way, The Alhambra (which is in Granada, where I live and my hometown) is one of the new candidates. Of course I have already voted for this "wonder", a place I always enjoy, no matter how many times I've been there. You can also vote for it online:

Erasmus - Higher education Gold for the University of Granada

The University of Granada got the Erasmus - Higher Education Gold Award.
This University heads the latest Erasmus statistics in absolute figures in students' mobility and holds fourth place in terms of lecturers.

In the years 2005-06 I took part in a project called VICTORIOUS , we were 10 partners coordinated by the Coimbra Group of Universities, and from the work we've done there I can confirm that Granada University is very popular among European students. So it is a pleasure to announce this very deserved award.

Those working in the International Office in Granada University are doing a great job, though still there's lot to do in terms of using technologies to support International programmes, both from the administration perspective and from the students and lecturers' needs.
My sincere congratulations to my University! Well Done!!

I found this page about being an ERASMUS in Granada in the University of Edinburgh web site.

Mrs. Cassidy's Web Page

Having a look at Mar Gallego's blog I found this fantastic example on how to use technology with young children. The web site of a Canadian teacher called Kathy Cassidy. Simple, but looks so useful.
Don't miss the video where she explains what they normally do in the classroom,
