EVO09

Registration for EVO sessions has just started.

I’m about to sign up for two of them:

Collaborative Writing

Why?
Last year I explored (or rather attempted to explore) collaborative writing with my students. Some questions have not been answered yet:

  • How to break the “group work” tradition which always results into a sort of Frankenstein piece of writing.
  • How to facilitate CW. What could be done before. Activities? Warm up activities?
  • How to help students assess their result.

Bonus motivation: WiZiQ sessions will be held.

images4education

Why?
Well, just because I love images.

  • My flickr account is one of my favourite ones.I would love to explore it further.
  • Images make me think, dream, create, imagine…
  • However, I cannot say images are part of my class.

Bonus motivation: Mary Hillis and Joao Alves are among the moderators.

Finally…

I hope to learn a lot, come across old friends, meet new colleagues and have fun.

I feel tempted to sign up for the drama session. I’m in two minds right now. I don’t know whether to follow the organizers’ advice (warning?) :

We strongly recommend that you sign up for no more than two sessions.

or Oscar Wilde’s:

The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.

What to do?

  1. Did you know that you can also embed the wiziq session right on your WordPress Blog.

    The information on the same is available at http://wiziq.typepad.com/

  2. Hi Gabriela,

    Well, I yielded to the temptation. I signed up for three sessions. I’ve been warned, I know.

    I have similar reasons for singing up to the Images session. I love images.

    See you around.

    • Natasa,
      I haven’t signed up for the drama session yet. I’ve been to that yahoo group lots of times, even clicked on the “join this group” buttom, and then thought: well, tomorrow.
      Thanks for visiting, I saw that “Crazy English” class, really crazy…
      See you
      Gabriela

  3. Hello, Gabriela,
    I signed up for two sessions
    – images4education because i love photos but also because carla arena and mary hillis and some of the other moderators where also involved with last year’s blogging4educators session
    – and the conflict solving session since I have hit the wall of my students many prejudices towards the world surrounding them
    I really hope I’ll keep up with both. They just sound so interesting

    Cheers,
    Andreea

  4. I understand you so well, though this year I’m forcing myself to stay out of it all!!! I feel really sorry, though, but, I do need to catch up with many other facets of my life, I’m afraid!

    All the best, & keep us posted!

  5. I’m so glad that you joined Images 4 Education! We are having a fabulous time and the interaction is just great! I’m so amazed at the variety of interesting contributions every day: photos, poems, blog posts! So many things to keep up with, but it is a wonderful chance to connect with educators around the world! See you around Ning!
