Hi everyone. I'm Russ Pearce (russ185) and I'm an English teacher at the brand new Eastern International University in Binh Duong, about 40km North of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in Vietnam.

I'm really hoping this course will show me how to use things like wikis and collaborative online projects. I'm not sure how it will work in my ESL classroom but it will certainly give me ideas for the future.

It's great to see so many people from around the world on here. I began teaching 6 years ago in Argentina and since then I've worked in Syria, Azerbaijan and Tunisia before finding myself here in Vietnam 3 months ago.

It's a pleasure to meet you all. Chat soon!

Bob Lejkowski-Clark


Hello. My name is Bob Lejkowski-Clark and my Yahoo ID is frenchbob2001.


I have been teaching English as Foreign Language for the past 10 years  mainly in Poland but I also work in summer schools in the UK. I have taught all levels from Absolute Beginner to Advanced but these days mainly teach Intermediate and above for a private language school in Poland. I teach mainly adults but also teenagers and only teenagers in the summer. I also prepare students mainly for FCE but have taught CAE in the past


I have joined the group because when I became a teacher technology was in its infancy and I have had very little to do with technology in teaching although I do consider myself computer literate. The school where I work has one 'Multimedia Suite" which contains one computer with internet connection, projector and screen. There is always a fight for this room and I can't see the point. Most of the things I have seen done using technology I would regard as entertainment which does have a place in teaching but I can not justify changing classrooms for an activity which takes 5 minutes and can probably be done  without technology.


I know I must learn how to integrate technology into lessons and am also considering a move into online teaching in the future to provide an additional source of income for my family.

 Hello Everyone,
 My name is Farisai Isi and I am a part time EFL teacher from Trinidad and Tobago, which is in the southern Caribbean near Venezuela. Most students come to our anglophone islands from South America and the French speaking Caribbean. They are usually pre or post university level or professionals seeking promotions, so with few exceptions they tend to be very motivated and techno savvy.
I have used Facebook and blogs, but I'm aware that I have only scratched the surface. My expectation is that through interaction in this community I can grow to greater levels of comfort and facility with the tools at our disposal.





Faith Fishley

Hello everyone,


I am Faith Fishley from Toronto. I'd been teaching EFL in Japan and Korea for the last seven years and hopefully returning back to Asia in the very near future. Though I personally use technology everyday, I haven't explored it as means for language teaching. I have an interest in online teaching, but I am not up to date with what tools are available. I look forward to participating in this session.

My name is Carina and I am from Brasilia, Brazil. Right now I am living and working in Vancouver, Canada. I work at a school called International House. This is my third time taking an EVO session. I have been trying to start a wiki page for my school and that is why I need help! Also, I feel that many of the teachers I work  with are not very familiar with the use of technology in the classroom. I hope I can share what I learn and help them feel more comfortable about it. It is a pleasure to be here again!

Maria Luisa Mu (Mumi) 


Dear everyone
 My name is Maria Luisa but most people call me Mumi due to the sound of my Chinese name Mumimu.

 I am the representative of TEACH the Peruvian Association of Teachers of English and have been a teacher and a teacher trainer for a long time. At present I do teacher training all over Peru sponsored by publishers or distributors and that is why I expect to learn how I could multiply and expand the possibilities of using ICT by my colleagues, especially in those geographical areas where there are not so many academic events running.
 I am a follower of the Dalai Lama and truly believe our task in this world is to help each other.

 I look forward to hearing from you all.

Federico Bertón




 Hello everybody!


 My name is Federico Bertón,  I'm from Villa Mercedes (San Luis- Argentina) and, I'm 21 years old.

Currently I'm studying to become teacher of English, hopefully I'll get my degree by the end of this year. Even though I'm not a teacher yet I'm teaching English at ISLI ( a private institute of English here in my city) I teach teens and young adults. I have to thank Jennifer Verschoor, who told me about this great group, if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't even know about it and also I'd like to thank Maria Bossa, who is one of the moderators of this group, who helped me a lot when I didn't know what to do at first  when I joined you. I hope to learn and share with all of you web 2.oo tools and explore all together the best ways of using them in our teaching practices. This is the first time I join this group ... so let's give it a try! 


See you around in the cyberspace !!!

Hi, My name's Fergus Fadden and I'm a teacher a and soon to be CELTA trainer. I've been teaching English for about 7 years now and I love it more every day! I'm currently living in Sao Paulo, Brazil where I am working with a very progressive school.


I thought in a few different countries( France, Spain and of course at home in Ireland) and have found each one more and more enriching.


I'm really looking forward to getting into this course and contributing as much as possible.
