I'm delighted and excited about taking part in this marathon of EVO courses for the first time. I've been teaching privately in São Paulo, Brazil, for over 20 years now. My biggest challenge with the constant globalized and tech world is to be up-to-date with the latest and cutting edge online teaching resources with the Web 2.0 tools. Therefore, my participation in the BAW2013. I teach BE both online and f2f, and I try to engage my private students into some blog participation: www.thecreativeenglishlearning.blogspot.com , as well as offering some resources on my site: www.creativeenglishlearning.com.br .I'll be glad to learn and exchange ideas and experience with all of the participants. Look forward to it. A great 2013 to all of you!

Hello everyone! I'm Catherine and I live in Grenoble, France - right next to the beautiful French Alps.

I have taught EFL for many years in France bit I come from the north-west of England and I love going back to the UK when I can. I teach in engineering universities but I like to do some in-business and 'fun' adult classes to keep up a good variety of teaching.

I started with BAW last year and was immediately impressed by what other teachers were doing all over the world. Scared to join in, I soon made some good friends with whom I often sat up until very late trying to find the right buttons to press. It was all challenging but such an eye-opener! And we did often succeed in the tasks! I look forward to doing the same with you all soon!

Hi Everyone.  I am an American living in Japan. My husband and I have a small English school.  We teach all ages, but mainly children.  Our students come to us one time a week for English lessons.  A couple years ago I started getting interested in integrating tech into my school and lessons, so I am always on the look out for good PD.  I love online learning because I live in a rural area with very few opportunities for traditional PD activities.  I love to see where everyone is from and learn about what other English teachers are doing all over the world.  Thanks for offering the course.  I'm looking forward to it.

Débora Tebovich

My name’s Debbie. I'm a passionate EFL teacher in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  I teach f2f and online. Technology plays an important role in the class; students get more motivated and enthusiastic when they can use some technology. I have been infected by the "I can" bug, and as it is so contagious my students are slowly but consistently getting infected, regardless of their age.

I strongly believe in the power of social networks, I actively and enthusiastically study to develop as a teacher. So, I am looking forward to becoming a Webhead to continue learning about better ways to create memorable learning moments.

That´s why I tend to spend a lot of time in front of the computer trying to figure out things, since I´m a computer immigrant.  Looking forward to learning and sharing with this new group of educators!

Hi, I am Sneza, an English teacher from Belgrade, Serbia. I have been teaching adults for more than 20 years, I first joined BaW last year not because I loved technology, like everybody else, but because I was scared of it and because my best friend had finally persuaded me this was the best place to be converted. How right she was! I can`t possibly imagine a better place to learn, with so much help from coordinators, moderators and other friends with who I  shared the quest for the right button! It doesn`t happen often that you completely change your views on something so crucial  so I decided to write about it in my blog  http://www.digitalsealogbook.blogspot.com/ . This year I can say I am here because I love technology but I love even more  BaW spirit,  the wonderful, extraordinary people I meet here!

Hi everyone in EVO 2013. It's a pleasure to be here and learn all the latest tips and tricks for best teaching practices. It's not my first EVO, but it's
something I look forward to in Jan and Feb every year.
I am originally from Glasgow in Scotland but I have been living in the Basel Switzerland and Alsace France area for the last 25 years. I see a few people from France and Germany here this year.  I teach English and French to adults in my small private school, The Language Workshop, as well as a "mother and young children's activities" group in French.

As I live in a small village, I enjoy these opportunities to reach out to the world through EVO!
I look forward to working with you here,
Best wishes,

Fabrizio Bartoli

 

Hi everybody my name is Fabrizio Bartoli. Efl teacher from Sicily. I used to run a language school before getting a permanent contract as state school teacher in 1999 and I am currently teaching k11-13 students in a lower secondary state school in Acireale, not far from Catania.  We've got several iwbs, a computer lab and so on but most  of us just do not have the right know-how in order to get the most out of all this.  I'm attending a post graduate course in web applications to efl, and a few online courses (moodle for teachers here at Evo, e-books, Adobe cs5, Edmondo/secondLife).  I'm very interested in this course and looking forward to learning from tutors and the other participants.  I'm still a bit puzzled by all these email notifications, yahoo groups layout and the rest but hope I'll work it out asap.  Anyone can reach me at mrbarfab@gmail.com, share, contribute, comment on

google drive,

Maria Luisa (Mumi)

   

Hello everyone

My name is Maria Luisa and my nickname is Mumi. I am from Lima, Peru and am currently the Academic Director of a training company (Customized Training Services) and a free-lance lecturer. I am also a professor at a Master in TEFL blended learning course at a private university and have worked as an Academic Coordinator at different private universities for quite a few years.  

I am determined to learn more, share more and enjoy all my classes. I participated in BAW2012 and loved every minute of it although I did not have time to try out all the tools so I hope I could do that this time.This is one of my blogs 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Lucy Yordanova

Hello, everyone.

My name is Lucy Yordanova.

I am from Bulgaria, but I live and work in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I teach general English, IELTS and ESP to adults at Al Khawarizmi International College  in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Currently I am working for one of the biggest factories for aluminium in the world called EMAL, where I teach General and Technical English to the Emirati trainees.

I joined this group because I met Vance at a workshop here in AD who inspired me to do so. :)) I also joined the group because I hope by the end of the course I would  learn  how to use different WEB tools in my classes in a more confident and effective way. I will be happy to make some new friends and share knowledge  and good practices.

I also expect to have a good time with this wonderful international group.

Heidi

Hi, everyone. I am Heidi Kotun Dawes from Upstate New York, and it is COLD right now!  I coordinate a very small ESL department at Elmira College, and have only this year begun to incorporate technology tools in my classes. My favorite collaborative tool at present is Google Docs because everyone can work at the same time without worrying about "breaking the lock". I am eager to become part of a larger network of educators on a similar path of exploration.

 

Anzhelika Vladyko

My name is Anzhelika Vladyko. I live in Yekaterinburg, Russia’s fourth biggest city located in the Ural Mountains. I’ve been teaching since 1991 and have experience of teaching all ages. I currently teach 8 and 9 grades at school. We collaborated in projects with classes from the USA, Spain and Peru and we’ve just accomplished a big project with Pennsylvania, USA, called “The Global Quest”. I’m interested in meeting colleagues from all over the world to involve students into more projects using technology and also integrating technology into my classroom and online teaching.

Alexandra Chistyakova

 

 

Hello!

My name's Alexandra Chistyakova.

I’m an English teacher at Moscow State University, the Physics faculty, Russia. I also work as a private teaching giving one-to-one lessons to learners of various ages and language levels. I enjoy my job for many things, but the one that I like most of all is communication with both students and colleagues around the globe. At the moment I feel I lack the basic knowledge in using Web 2.0 tools in teaching and that’s the reason why I joined this session. I hope the session and collaboration with other participants will help me improve a lot.

I uploaded my photo, but I cannot see it near my profile. I think that it's a question of resizing; moderator, can you help me?

Bob said

You can resize the photo here http://www.picresize.com/ upload it and then set it to 150x150 and then you should be ok. Thanks to Teresa for showing us this in the webinar. I did learn something!

Hi Amel!
Your photo is huge. You need to upload a small photo 150 x 150. I will delete the big one.

I had to try it a few times and find a way to get my photo small enough and in the right place! But eventually I managed. :-) I'm on a Mac and I found I could resize conveniently using iphoto ( I usually use Picasa).

Hello Annie,
Congratulations for being successful in doing that. Getting the photo the right size can be a challenge. A good thing to do is to get it resized online. If you google "image resizer, you will find lots of options. I generally prefer the ones that do the job online (that do not ask me to download any program). Picasa is definitely a good photo service.
Thanks for sharing your insights with us.
See you around .

I really have to confess that it was a long time I didn´t have this type of experience since I am not teaching conversational now, but technical. Any way I recognize it is a great and nice moment for me. I think it is going to be a great opportunity to work with the ICT. Every day we learn and learn so that our students become better professionals according to the real time. See you next..... Celsa
