**Teaching and Learning Through Chat by D. Gonzalez**


I liked the article it has very usefull and reflexive information. It is true that the chat is a great tool to get in touch with students i a more free way and to maximize the possibility to interact with native speakers, or other teachers.

What it is important to keep in mind is that whatever kind of chat the teacher uses (free topic, collaborative task-oriented, etc) it must be goal oriented and needs a previous preparation. The chat activities are also usefull for the teachers because they help to plan different activities, share the work done with other colleagues, explore web tools and develop creative activities that change and optimize the methodology used. Chat is also useful to evaluate activities and the learning process in general. The important tips to keep in mind are that teachers and learners must learn how to use the web tools and after that use them for their specific purposes in that way the use of technology will be well worthed
