III. Телемост с учащимися гимназии №1 г. Хасавюрта республики Дагестан.

T. You know that it was Vladimir Putin’s initiative to provide all Russian schools with the Internet, some schools were connected to it a few years ago and their students are much more proficient in using the Internet. I mean our friends from gymnasium #1 from the city of Khasavurt, Dagestan. That’s why I’d like you to ask them some questions you are interested in.

T. Good morning, Khasavurt! Do you hear us? How are you today? We are speaking about using the Internet at our English lessons. We know that you have an opportunity to work with the Internet at each lesson. Am I right? Unfortunately we don’t. So my students would like to ask your students a few questions. Are you ready?

1.  How does the Internet help you in your studies?
2. What problems with connection to the Internet do you have?
3. What speed does your provider guarantee?

11. How long can you work in the Internet at the lesson?
12. What Web sites would you recommend us to use at our English lessons?

Answers of the pupils from Dagestan:

1.  How does the Internet help you in your studies?

P1. I suppose the Internet is a very useful invention of mankind. If I need to find something I mustn’t go to the library or look through a lot of books. It is enough for me to get into the Internet and type what I need, and here are lots of sites at my disposal. For example it is very useful to do on-line English tests in Google dot ru.

P2. I agree with him. It is really very useful to use the Internet if you want to find anything new/ I’m very fond of physics and I always try to find new information or some interesting facts to use at the lesson.

2. What problems with connection to the Internet do you have?

P1. Usually we don’t have any problems and the connection is usually very good. But of course there are cases when it is impossible to get into the internet because we don’t know due to which reason our provider cuts us off.

P2. You are right. Besides we have an Internet connection through the telephone and as we have a very old telephone station in the city many of the telephones don’t work very often.

 3. What speed does your provider guarantee?

There are two Internet providers in our city – Dagestan network and our school internet, which is called Putin Internet. I think you’ve got the same. The traffic of Dagnet is very fast, especially if you have got a modern computer. The traffic of the other is rather slow and it takes a lot of time to upload what we want to. It is very difficult to open the websites and if you want to send some pictures to your friends via e-mail they want come through.

4. What Web sites do you usually visit?

P1. I visit many sites, but my favourite is IGoogle, where I have got my own page. I advise everybody to have it as the homepage, because you can arrange it in the way you like. It is easy to upload pictures there, videos, music, etc. And they are always by the hand.

P2. I like making presentations. I think to be a good designer you must learn how to operate the Power Point program. Teachers often ask me to prepare a presentation on this or that topic and I have to spend a lot of time in different Web sites to find the necessary information. I usually work in Google. ru or Google .com . The collection of pictures there is the largest in the Internet. The Websites in Google are very nice too.

5. Why do teenagers like the Internet?

P1. I shan’t speak about why the teenagers like the Internet; I’ll tell why I like it. I live rather far from our city library. I’m interested in biology and if I want to find any information I must go to the library. But very often there isn’t any information I’m looking for there and here – you must only write in Google tool bar want you want to have and here you are.

P2. I participate in the Global classroom program with the students from Belfast High school? Maine, U.S.A.  I have a friend there – John Black. We send each other e-mails very often. I ask him about the questions I am interested in about American history, culture, traditions, youth and he answers them. I like that I get the questions from the boy who is my age.

6. Do you write letters via the Internet?

Yes, we do. All of us have e-mail addresses and we correspond with our friends from Belfast High school.

7. How do you work with the Internet?

I think many students have already answered this question but I work with the Internet regularly. I don’t spend much time there – it’s very expensive, but before coming to the Internet I must know exactly what I want to find and where I can find it.

 8. What are your favorite sites?

My favorite sites are – Voice of America special English, U-tube. com, slideshare. Net. In U-tube com. I can see lots of videos and in Slideshare net. There are lots of power point presentations I can use in my studies.

9. Does your school have its own Web site? What is its address?

Yes, we have. Its address is www.dagschool.com. Besides our teacher of English Mikhail Magomedovich Nokhov has a very interesting and useful web site. Its address is www.accesskhas.ru

 10. How many pupils in your group can work in the Internet at the same time?

There are not many classes in our gymnasium, so we haven’t got many computers.   All of them are in our English study, so we can use them very often. We have got eight computers and eight students can work at the same time. 

11. How long can you work in the Internet at the lesson?

When the internet was free of charge we could work as long as we wanted to, but nowadays I don’t think we’ll often work in it and for a long time.

 12. What Web sites would you recommend us to use at our English lessons?

We have already named some of them but there are lots of interesting Websites in the site of our teacher. He lets everybody use them Go to some interesting web sites.

IV. Экскурсия по сайту http://www.accesskhas.ru
T. Thank you very much, Khasavurt! We’ve  learnt so much interesting and I hope our students will follow your advice and this information will be very useful for them. And now we are going to make a short tour of M.M. Nokhov’s web site. I think it will be very interesting both for the students and teachers present here. Mikhail Magomedovich, you are welcome!

M.M. проводит экскурсию по своему сайту.

T. Thank you very much, M.M. We will use the information from your web site at our lessons by all means. We also have our school web site and we will be happy if you visit it too. Its address ishttp://www.vladsch42.narod.ru

VI. Work on the Internet.
1) Работа в slideshre.net
T. M.M., we see that you have a lot of presentations on your site. How do you manage to upload them? Can you give us a piece of advice?
(Учащиеся учатся отсылать Power Point презентации)
T. And now let’s do some practical tasks. It goes without saying that the Internet contains a  lot of useful and unuseful information and sometimes it’s impossible to find the information you need quickly. That’s why you should know exactly what kind of information you are looking for and where it can be found. You have a list of specialized search engines and directories which can be very useful. They are divided into 3 columns: the subject, directories and the links.(см. Приложение 2) So if you are interested in some materials for kids you can go to Yahoo!Kids and find there games, movies, stories, music and more.
T. - If you want to find some information about British schools what directory will you go to?
- some educational aspects?
- information of any kind?
- radio programs?
- images, sounds and videos?
- biographies of famous people?
- information about different countries?
- TV programs, movies, actors?
- current news?
T. You’ve got a large list of search engines with detailed description of their features. If you read and translate it attentively, I hope, it will help you in your future work with the Internet. And you’ve already used a few of these search engines. Which of them are the most popular in our country?
Ps. Google, Yandex, Ask.com, Alta Vista, Rambler, Brainboost, etc.
T. So today our task will be to work in different search engines and to see which of them are the most useful and easy to operate.

The tasks: (см. Приложение 1)

1) It's St. Patrick's Day today! Time to wear a shamrock, go green, get jiggy and spread some Paddy magic.

Specialized Search Engines and Directories

There are approximately zillions of specialized search engines out there, as can be seen at Search Engine Guide. The list below is a selective subset of these, chosen because they might help you find materials useful as resources in a WebQuest. All of these links lead to sites that contain specific information that may not turn up when you do a general search of the Web using Altavista, Yahoo, and other search engines and directories. For a more comprehensive list, you might also want to check the Invisible-Web site.
