When it comes to teaching, it is not always simple to keep the students motivated, interested, and enthusiastic, especially when we talk about distance learning and e-learning session. In this scenario, where distance learning has become one of the main ways to teach, ICT resources are crucial for assisting teachers in communicating with the students and creating for them collaborative spaces and interactive experiences.

The participants had also the opportunity to discover a tool for building in a very easy way websites, to share with the students assignments, materials and insights. Especially in distance learning, website can be a connection between the teacher and the students, becoming a virtual space where the main announcement about home work and group project are communicated.
Finally, when we talk about distance learning, it is important to promote how much we can the active role of our students. That’s why we explored together some tools to create classroom games and competitions, to make assessment fun and interactive.
