I’ve always wanted to start a blog ,an educational one, but I think I was too busy or too lazy to do this. But, here I am pushed by the course I am taking now:)
This blog will be about anything and everything I think teachers and/or educators may benefit from. Personally, as an ESL teacher, I really need many activities to teach vocabulary, grammar, reading, and listening. So, my blog will include that as well. I face many challenges in my class such as trying to minimize the use of our first language, Arabic, or convincing students that learning English needs so much practice and patience because we do not practice English except in our class time.
Another challenge is incorporating technology in ESL settings especially in developing countries. Access to Internet, familiarity with technology, using technology in learning the language and getting out of traditional molds and start using technology such as blogs, electronic dictionaries, electronic websites, English websites, search engines, and/or video posting websites.
These were some of the ideas I have concerning this blog.
Here we go, our journey starts here with education, technology and ESL.
P.S feel free to ask or post your opinion on what I write.
