Our Educational Message

Hi, and welcome to our blog. This space is designed to share ideas and methodologies that we use to teach Turkish teenagers. In particular, there is a strong focus on ICT-ELT, which means if you like visual and technological support for your style of teaching, this blog is for you. My colleague, Brentson Ramsey, has been working alongside me for three years. He is also a big proponent of the ICT-ELT Paradigm, which means he will also be posting from his own teaching perspective on the blog.

2010 was the beginning of this new journey, and although there is no definitive ICT-ELT road map available for everyone to follow, it is exciting to explore the technological means to make teaching more fun and affective for students. Our main message is for teachers to ADOPT & ADAPT the paradigm shift for their own needs, and remember that

Session THREE is the PD session which involved explaining the serious educational brilliance of our PLN, EDMODO.  Since both my colleague and I have written previously on Edmodo, I will simply put a link below for you to click and see what we have written, before. Can I just add that by using Edmodo we put the onus on students and parents to take more interest in their learning both in and out of class.  It has many advantages over traditional systems.
My PD session attendees were very taken with the site and its services.  They were particularly excited about the host of quiz styles available at literally the push of three buttons. Also, when I showed them the grading book for recording their students' progress, this also created a lot of interest.  It was a really positive 90 mins. on Edmodo PD.
