David Deubelbeiss from the excellent resource EFL Classroom 2.0 (if you’re teaching English Language Learners you should definitely join — it’s free) was kind enough to develop a neat Diigo slideshow of all the sites I listed in The Best Internet Sites For English Language Learners — 2008.
It’s just another way of checking them out. David says he especially likes these kinds of slideshows for when he makes presentations to other teachers.
Obviously, though, the website images don’t include the descriptions I wrote in in my list about how I use them with students.
I love your resources and this way of presenting them is fabulous for teachers. Thanks David. Diigo is a brilliant tool.
I have told a number of curriculum consultants about your email newsletter and blog and without fail when I am in contact with them they thank me for putting them onto your work.
Thanks for reviewing one of my favorite sites, David’s EFL Classroom 2.0. You can find a plethora of Powerpoint slides, some reflections on the zen of teaching, and meet very web savvy folks working in South Korea. In short, I always find visiting the site – even if only once every few months – a valuable way to spend a few hours.
Thanks Elaine and Eric for the thumbs up!
My real rationale behind the network is to harness new technology in support of the vagabond, quite come ‘n go nature of EFL teaching. Teachers need support given they are spread out all over the world. Somehow it helps make the world a smaller place….
Yes, diigo’s webslides is super easy to set up. An application that really works! Especially these days, students need to see the site to get interested…
I’ll be working all month on a prof. development page for both teaching in general and specifically EFL. Will appreciate any comments when it arrives! Mostly just consolidating all the material already available – at them moment that seems to be the priority. So much available but how to order it. I guess that is the problem with the internet in general these days….
