Jean Michel CHAUPART 


I am Jean Michel Chaupart, from Bucaramanga, Colombia. I taught french during 30 years at the university, now retired but still training the trainers to use ICTs in education.

It’s my 5th or 6th time as a “student” in BAW where I always know new things; where I enjoy (and love) the human qualities of our two coordinators and where I find as moderators persons who where students in BAW one, two or more years ago.

BAW has always been a MUST for me.

Gladys Ledwith


I have been an English teacher for almost 30 years. At the moment I coordinate the English Department in a bilingual k-12 school in Buenos Aires. As from 2008 our students from 5th to 10th grades come to school with their own netbooks, their classrooms are equipped with an IAW, teacher's PC and WIFI. Evidently this has had an enormous impact in whatever happens inside our classrooms.

More or less at that time I opened a Ning space http://teachustech.ning.com to share my experiences with colleagues.   My Yahoo ID: glad01ar

Ellen Clegg


I direct an intensive English program (ELS Language Centers) in San Antonio, Texas.  I participated in this seminar last year and really enjoyed it, but felt I didn’t have enough time to explore all the tools.  I’m back this year for more and am hoping to become more familiar with all of this wonderful stuff.  All of the online materials that can be applied to ESL classes fascinate me.  I’m hoping to become much more experienced in using them through this course.  Also, just found out I will be doing an Electronic Village presentation (“World of Warcraft: Ways of Learning”) at TESOL in March.    eclegg@els.edu

 I am Mariana Oprea from Moldova (mariana_oprea27) and I would like to make a short self-introduction. I have recently graduated Moldova State University, with a major in English language and literature, and during 2007-2008 I spent one fabulous year as an exchange student in Florida, studying Elementary Education.

 Currently, I work for American Language Center, part of the American Councils, where I  teach English as a Foreign Language to teenagers and adults. As a young professional, who likes giving the best she can and providing qualitative services, I have been engaged in various sources of professional development. Having students from various background and different needs, I feel that I need to improve my teacher skills. I like learning new things every day, engaging my mind into intelligence-challenging situations and cultural exchange, that is why, EVO is perfect for me. My expectations are rather basic ones: interaction, knowledge, challenges, skills and networking.

 Thank you very much for this wonderful project and I think it is going to be a wonderful experience for all of us!

I am so excited to join this course, because I am sure that I will make my students embrace new technology. My experience with ICT includes creating short video clips with windows movie maker. I also have a blog which is a lesson once designed for my students.
