Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the south of Spain.

Altough here in Torredonjimeno, the weather is not so cold as it is in the north of Europe, we can also enjoy,from time to time, the typical Christmas landscape of streets full of snow.

Best wishes

The world of social media

We had an interesting lecture here at Valkeakoski Adult Education Centre last Friday. Planning coordinator Satu Nurmela from the University of Turku gave an overview of what social media is and what some of its pedagogical applications might be.

The world is changing and the gap between the world of a teenager and the world of a senior citizen has never been wider. Eight out of the Top 10 websites in Finland are social media sites. You can check the situation in your country at This illustrates the impact of interactive media on our lives.

Also, check out this link:

It is a website portraying a "subway map" of active links that shows what kind of interactive web content there is. Have a pleasant journey!

Project kick-off

Welcome to the IEOL blog! The purpose of this blog is to keep in touch with partners, share ideas and develop new ways of using social media in teaching adults.

We would like to invite all partners to describe the ways they have used ICT in teaching in the past and the aspects they would like to explore within the scope of this project.

We are very excited about this project and looking forward to working together!
