Ayat Tawel and Hanaa Khamis discuss EVO with participants in NileTESOL LTSIG

Learning2gether Episode #355

Download mp3:

NileTESOL LTSIG coordinator Ayat Tawel has received inquiries and questions from members about the pnature of Electronic Village Online (EVO) sessions, http://evosessions.pbworks.com, how to join an online course, what platforms can be used, the nature of online work and interaction, and how EVO can be a good professional development opportunity.

We noticed that some of our members are not so much familiar with online sessions and need an orientation into the nature of these sessions. That’s why Hanaa Khamis (LTSIG coordinator) and Ayat conducted this online session as a kind of orientation into online sessions, different platforms and how to manage online work in light of EVO sessions.

This is not about the different sessions as the facilitators advise participants to join the kick off for more details, as can be heard at the end of the session.

All are invited to participate and maybe share something about EVO. The session is provisionally scheduled for Friday (23/12) at 16:00 GMT.

Thanks to an ongoing grant from http://www.learningtimes.com/




The recording could be posted on NileTESOL website later as well as at http://learning2gether.net, which will serve as a promotion for EVO as well. I believe this will get the attention of a big number of educators all across Egypt.

Sat Dec 17, 2016 12pm EST Valerie Lewis: Featured Teacher on Classroom 2.0

If you’re feeling completely exhausted as you head into your Winter break, this is a “must-see” webinar to get re-charged and inspired to recapture your passion for teaching with our Featured Teacher, Valerie Lewis! This webinar will show teachers how to find their own voice and passions in order to create their own lane. During a time, where teachers may be facing criticism in the profession and burn-outs from overwhelming expectations, they will be encouraged to “ignite the spark” within themselves and spread that passion like a wildfire amongst others. The speaker will share examples of things that have inspired her and share how she went from concept and ideas to reality.

Valerie Lewis is an EDUPRENEUR, technology fanatic, a forever learner, and a DISRUPTOR of normalcy within education from Miami, FL but a 10 year resident of Atlanta, Georgia! Valerie considers herself a natural leader with a gift and calling to teach all students. Her philosophy is that all students can learn once great strategies are implemented. Every teacher should always seek ways to challenge not only their students but themselves as well. This idea has pushed Valerie to build collaborative learning spaces such as: PasstheScopeEDU, Preparing Next Generation Innovators, Teacherpreneur Chat, EdObstacles and other community service learning projects which makes “giving good”.
