  6. 6. “Web 2.0, social web, Facebook, online games: the truth is that many, students network with their classmates and with international new friends many hours per day. Does this actually support CLIL and teaching stuff, or take away from it? Isn't it a bit frustrating to know that students are so active at home, but not in class? In my opinion, the problem is that so many teachers don't see how useful other methods can be, too.” LauraRe 4.2.2009 http://ccn.infoweb.as.tietotalo.fi/English/Networking/Discussion_forum.iw3?msg=e0e04a0c-c528-4d06-863b-0696dee51810
