Looking forward to meeting a lot of interesting people !

Now I work in Saudi Arabia; Dawadmi Community College, King Saud University. Though this is my first time in BaW, ( and wont be the last), I really loved it very much. Co-moderators immediate response and great help is encouraging to continue and to be here every year thans Isabel and Anisoara;different colleagues questions and answers guide you. Besides knowing much about the use of technology for yourself and your students, you really enjoy being with such a wonderful friendly group and you are motivated to play with the different tools and trying to make your own touch. I think this will help me a lot in my Ph.D research as I'm researching Cooperative Learning

Lets learn!




Your name here


                   I'm Elizabeth Anne, of British origin I have lived in Grenoble, France for the whole of my adult life.

Important message for first year BaW-ers; NEVER loose hope. It has taken me 4 years to feel OK about putting messages out here - but my students have benefited so much from what I have learnt with the Webheads.  I teach at a University, and all of my students create their own wiki or blog even though they only have very short English courses (24 hours). . http://l38phys.pbworks.com/  or  the blogroll on http://eannegrenoble.edublogs.org/

I would garner brownie points if you download the podcast about the diferent registers in English called "the History of English" from our University's effort at podcasting here:  which I originally made for a class of 15 year olds, and which could be of interest for all levels.  Long live the Webheads ! ... cu around :-)
