august newsletter

"The future of teaching is learning"      August 2010
Learning Revolution

Fellow EFL 2.0 Members,

A very "short" newsletter. Stay tuned for much more in Sept. as we get ready for a new school semester/year.  I hope you are recharging your batteries very well.

Look forward to
- new interactive content,, a new associated job site, new online technology courses and more....

Our new ELT and Technology wiki
site map

I have spent a lot of time consolidating our technology tutorials (at least the main ones) on one public wiki - ELT and TECH. Please browse, use and pass on. A wealth of information about the best tools and applications for teaching language using technology.
This fall, I will open a course using the wiki so that teachers may get practical training and a certificate in the basic use of web 2.0 tools. Stay tuned!
Of course, still lots more about technology on EFL Classroom 2.0. In particular see.

Our technology videos :  video about all kinds of technology issues.
*  Our professional development page - more videos and tutorials
The Teacher Training presentation page - many presentations about tech issues.
Our technology resources .


Video of the Month

This month's "hottest" is again a karaoke song! Donna had a hit again as her students made and shared a great "doodle" video. Get more like it here. Also hot was WonderwallTeaching with Old Spice and Curse of the Were Rabitt



View our whole directory of hundreds of THE BEST VIDEOS. Don't forget ourA/V Player and I'd also suggest our amazing TED Talks player! This month on Teacher's TV, I will be highlighting great teaching videos like: To Sir with Love, Pay it Forward and School of Rock.


The 18th EFL / ESL / ELL Blog Carnival

carnival

We hosted  the 18th EFL / ESL / ELL Blog Carnival. Please take a read - lots of fine entries and you even can ride a ferris wheel! Download the random selector powerpoint template I made and used in the carnival HERE.   For more great blog discovery, use our Random ELT Blog generator!

Teacher Surveys

 Each month we will have several techer surveys . Please take a moment to click your response! I think they will be interested to others and a good way to share information about our own teaching environments. Here are the results of the first two surveys:

survey1


survey2



Ongoing Discussions and Highlighted Blogs!

WHY NOT START YOUR OWN BLOG TODAY? - Not only will you get readers, you will be helping fellow teachers. It's easy as just starting to write!

USE OUR COMMUNITY WIDE SEARCH!


What's coming up.....

I have been providing free access to thousands of ELT jobs through my job feed at http://twitter.com/eltjobs - this month, we will open TEFList  for business. Stay tuned and I hope everyone will support it and make it a success. It truly will revolutionize and make easier - the search for jobs and promoting your "teacher" self. Stay tuned!


Parting thoughts about our community.

This month, we will be changing over to a new network plan with Ning. More costly but hopefully with some more benefits. We will be trying to raise some funds to cover our additional costs and I'll let everyone know about this. One possibiility will be if all members support our new job site - I will use the funds made there (from employers) to cover our costs. Let's see.  But .....

        Please note - EFL Classroom 2.0 will continue to be free and updated/new. That's my promise!
