Abstract

Abstract: This paper considers the transition from traditional models of teacher training to new forms which have been made possible by the possibilities offered by ICT. Virtual communities emerge out of the need of moving from static traditional training systems to new possibilities supported by technology that allow collaboration and continuous renewal of knowledge. Trainees constantly revisit contents and are appalled by the interaction with other community members. In this paper we will make reference to an in-service training course we designed and carried out for English as a Foreign Language secondary school teachers. We analyse how the course and its development has been supported by the use of different technological tools and web-based platforms, which have allowed the creation of a virtual community.
