What do you use the computer for?

This year you have started a new adventure with computers, you are a member of RED XXI, that means you use the Web 2.0 in your school life. Nowadays the computer has became a book in your backpack and the internet is a new tool for studying and learning.

I want to propose you to write and tell everybody what tools do you use in the school, what do you use the computer for.

You will publish your composition in your blog as a part of your portfolio. After doing the process you will have to send the link to your teacher through an Edmodo assigment.

Remember it is very important to review your work specially the grammar. You can use the examples you have at page 17 in your English.
