 MEET THE TEAM

 

 


Carla Arena
 

I'm a Brazilian EFL educator who's passionate about teaching. I'm curious and always in search of online tools that can add value to my teaching practices and hook up students to learn. I truly believe in the transformational power education holds when we find the right means to engage, enchant and motivate our learners.
I'm a teacher trainer at a Binational Center in Brasilia. I've been more and more involved in e-learning projects, devising online sessions and teaching them.  I'm a a blogging fan (or addict!) and enthusiastic Webhead.
I'm really excited about this online journey. For the past four years, I've co-moderated the Blogging4Educators , Images4Education and digitalstorytelling sessions, but I'm up to this challenge of another session with wonderful souls.

Hello, I am a Special Education Teacher for our high school in our school district of 1460 students  Wells Ogunquit Community School District, Maine. In 2005, I completed a course during the online Electronic Village, Becoming a Webhead. That one course opened the door to so many opportunities that I am happy to "pay it back" by being part of this collaborative course. I am also a Webcaster at EdtechTalk, blogger at TechLearning.com, member of SEEDLINGS,a presenter and lover of technology, parent, kayaker and skier! Nice to meet you!

Erika Cruvinel

 

 

My name is Erika Cruvinel and I have been teaching English as a foreign language in Brazil for 10 years. I work at a binational center, Casa Thomas Jefferson, and I am also a member of this school's EdTech Team. Nowadays, I spend most of my time working with online courses and teacher training. My main interests are the use of Web 2.0 tools in the classroom, international collaborative projects, social networks and professional development. EVO has changed the way I teach, the way I learn, my values my beliefs and it has allowed me to meet so many interesting and brilliant people from all around the globe. I hope it changes your life for better too!

I live in Switzerland; I've just moved from the International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations to the International School of Central Switzerland (ISOCS), where I'm helping teachers and students develop their interests and expertise in the possibilities offered by information and communication technology for extension, enrichment, creativity and discovery in teaching and learning. My digital portfolio is at this link.

 

 

 

Nina Liyulkun

 

I come from Ukraine and teach Business English for students at the Khmelnitskiy National University. Since joining the online community of webheads I’ve learned a lot from and with the dedicated educators whose major interest is IT for teaching and learning online. Annual TESOL’s EVO sessions give everyone a good chance to get knowledge and experience in integrating technology into educational process. I am happy to be part of the moderating team of EVO sessions since 2007 at Blogging for Educators, Images4Education  and Digital Storytelling 2011. The sessions have given an impulse to continue improving skills in this area. More info about my activities can be found at collaborative WorldCALL 2008 wiki,

I am Saša Sirk, an English teacher from Slovenia. I teach freshmen at vocational college of Tehniški šolski center in Nova Gorica. I'm a webhead, an iEARNER,  and a member of the Slovene Association of LSP Teachers and IATEFL Slovenia. I started learning to swim in the cyber ocean in TESOL's EVO 06 and I enjoy coming back year after year to continue exploring, connecting, learning, and sharing. I blog in my Cyberkitchen. 

 

 

Jane Petring

 

I teach at Collège Édouard-Montpetit near Montreal, Québec.  It seems that I have been involved with foreign language education my whole life as a student, teacher, administrator, author or online moderator and find all of those roles constantly intersecting. Besides Canada, I have taught in the US, Ivory Coast, Niger, Croatia, China and traveled in 80-some countries. Over the last eight years, I've written three ESL textbook series designed for the college/university level and have co-moderated a number of online sessions such as Collaborative Blogging, Images4Education, digitalstorytelling among others.  I have also wrestled with the relative advantages of using online tools or textbooks in several articles  (e.g. Textbook and Web 2.0: Collision or Collaboration?) and created a number of blogs to help my students explore online tools: Discovering, Deducting and Digging, Exploring 19th Century Literature and English CEF Blog, and try to keep track of digital tools in this wiki.  I look forward to exploring more digital tools with this vibrant international community. Here's a limirick about myself, using Prezi for my Digital Intro.

 

 

Ana Maria Menezes

 

  I'm Ana Maria Menezes. A Brazilian EFL teacher, teacher trainer and the technology coordinator at a Language Institute. I love searching the net for new learning possibilities and publish my "discoveries" and "trials" in my blog LIFE FEAST. Since 2006 I've been trying out different webtools with my students and organising the tools according to the skills they favor. The result of this work can be found in my two books, Webtools applied to teaching and Developing the 4 Skills with Webtools. At the moment, I've started an MA in Applied Linguistics and have been writing about how technology has influenced my development as a teacher.

 

 

Mary Hillis

I'm enthusiastic about language teaching and learning and have been exploring the use of web tools for personal and professional use since participating in the 2006 EVO session Becoming a Webhead. I have been part of the moderating team for several previous EVO sessions, including Blogging4Educators and Images4Education. You can learn more about me at Education Connections.
