About Me


I’m Cristina. I am an English teacher working at EOI Avilés (Asturias) and this is my blog where I share my favourite activities using and not using technology. Thanks for being here.

The activities I love to create are those where students take an active role in their learning. Very often the activities you’ll see on this blog are fuelled by my love for introducing online free tools in my classes, but you’ll also read about games, competitions, introducing different dynamics and, in general, anything that involves stepping away from the book and spicing up my classes. After 20-ish years teaching, I try to keep my motivation high by designing activities which make my students leave the class with a smile on their face and I might give myself a mental high five.

I am also an experienced teacher trainer and run workshops on the use of online free tools in the classroom to design activities that might spice up your classes.

If you are a teacher and would like to work together, have a look at some of my most popular workshops and feel free to shoot me an email at cristina.cabal@gmail.com.


Workshops can be run in English or in Spanish, as this is my mother tongue.
