So glad you found us! Welcome to EFL Classroom 2.0! I hope you'll find a great "home" for learning and teaching. I look forward to your own contribution here. By sharing and learning from one another, all our jobs get easier.
You have a couple of very impressive friends! Steve for sure, I've the utmost respect for and he has informed me on a few things about social networking.....Please make sure your students know about us! I'm spending a year trying to build with others a community of both teachers and students. Conversation + Content. I'd be interested in any advice you'd have about podcasting also...... Glad you have joined the conversation and I'll be sure to let members know (or you do) about your podcasts and Edtech. Been meaning to highlight it in the Website forum.
Here's the rest of the welcome 'spiel".....
Make sure you introduce yourself in our "introduce yourself" forum! Find others with common interests and Make Pals by inviting members to be your friend! And if you want, show others where you are from on the Frappr map.
When you have a moment, personalize your homepage, click around and see a lot of great videos, presentations, links to resources (games/readers/karaoke) pics and music. Share in the forums and put up or link to your own blog. Check out our great Buzka library of links. You have unlimited photo storage and can make your own albums and slideshows. Even chat to Dave the "bot".
Join a “classroom” that interests you or form your own! Also, Ning offers a multiple login feature so that you can register a class page and all your students/faculty can access through the same pw/id and use the content. You can even start your own classroom here for your students in our groups.
Please take a look at the EFL FAQ link on the main page.
Note our Media Fire unlimited file sharing for sharing / storing materials.
