How can teachers bring the world into their classrooms by using modern techniques and different digital tools? Today’s teachers have tasks that are wider than teaching pupils how to read and write.Teachers need to build bridges and have an intercultural perspective. In this talk, I will show you how we combined literature about the second world war with digital tools such as Skype in the Classroom, guest speakers, and a blog. I did this to help the pupils understand both the past and the present and develop their English at the same time.
