    Hi Barb,
    Thanks for the great inspiring post. I believe so many teachers, I am one of them, may be less motivated to think about using tech tools in their low tech classrooms. We think that trying to do so can not lead to substantial results and it is just a waste of time and energy that can be devoted to “traditionally” teach something else. The experience you shared in your post as well as the one posted by the passionate Fabiana Laura Casella, have made it clear that it’s up to us, teachers, to be creative because there are certainly innovative ways to get the most of technology no matter how low tech-equiped our classrooms are. How you integrated the role play app in your class embodies the principle of learning by doing. I use short scenarios from time to time to encourage my students practise language in class. They like role play activities so much, but I think they will be even more engaged if I use such activities the way you did.
    Regards,
    Samir
