A glimpse into my virtual class of December 22 2015

This video provides a glimpse into the 90-minute virtual class offered in the framework of a Pisga Holon teachers of English professional Development Workshop. Participants have had the chance to experience Blended Learning since this virtual class follows a fully online Module on a Moodle Platform which is part of a mostly Face to Face workshop.

SEETA: Moodle Training for Volunteers - Virtual Class 20.12.2015

I have just had the pleasure of facilitating a virtual class to SEETA volunteers on an Adobe Connect room. This class was the first in the framework of a workshop aimed at helping SEETA volunteers get to know (and use) Moodle. The class seems to have gone well, which is great. Volunteers are English teachers from different countries, whch makes this all the more interesting. The course continues on the workshop's Moodle platform. I am glad to say that this is one of ETAI's contributions to SEETA's work Incidentally, I have NOT given up on the idea of having a similar workshop for teachers of English in Israel. My idea, however, is that such a workshop should be carried out in the framework of the Ministry of Education, so that teachers who decide to take part in the course pay just a few shekels, and when completing the course get a "GMUL". I have written about it on the ETAI Forum (I guess my article will be published on the coming edition of the Forum), and am in touch with people who MAY help me turn this "crazy idea" into a reality." Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.

Volunteering with SEETA

I am about to start a workshop aimed at helping SEETA volunteers use Moodle in their online workshops. I understand that I will be interacting with teachers from different ountries. This sounds quite interesting indeed. I am looking forward to that.

English Workshop December 2015 Pisga Holon

The following clip offers a glimpse into what we have done so far, on the tools we have used, on our use of EDMODO, and on how participant teachers will be using Screencastomatic to document their work on Module 4

Our focus is both on Digital Tools and the ADDED VALUE Digital Tools and APPS provide us with for our work as teachers. Accordingly, teacher participants do not talk about Digital Skill; instead, they learn to use them, and improve by doing work with them. Undoubtedly, teachers will eventually also LEARN BY TEACHING.
