I've been trying to find time to fit one of these in for a couple of years so am trying to do two this summer:
  • Becoming a Webhead  - we will explore Web 2.0 tools and share the best ways of using them in our teaching practices. We are part of the Webheads in Action virtual Community of Practice.
  • Creating Vocabulary Activities - introduce instructors to simple tools and techniques used by their educational-technology-savvy peers to produce professional, functional and recyclable resources for teaching vocabulary.
I'm quite excited as there are teachers from all over the world registered for these so I'll not only learn lots of new things, but get to meet teachers with similar interests.
