I am writing a short article to be published on a magazine for EFL teachers in Israel. It is about blogs. I thought I might write a few things that I intend to have published on that article, just to see if you, colleagues, think that I am on the right track.
I will just post here a few of the things that I have already prepared. The article (I have submitted a first draft which may be edited) is a bit longer.…Continue
I've always wondered what is the "je ne sais pas quoi' , that magical quality that great teachers have.
Is it simply their passion? Is it their knowledge? Is it their commitment and…Continue
I'm a pretty big cheerleader of our sister site, Classroom 2.0 and belong and participate in several groups there. Much like our Ning but focused on technology and its application for education.
