EVO 2010- Join the fun!

Hi all!

I am thrilled that Electronic Village Online (EVO) 2010 sessions have started. It might be familiar to those who have participated in them before but if you haven't heard of these sessions, here is a brief description of these sessions :

'For six weeks, participants in EVO can engage with ESOL experts in collaborative, online discussion sessions or in hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions will bring together participants for a longer period of time than is permitted by the land-based TESOL convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas and themes of the convention or of professional interest in general.'

The most appealing aspect of these sessions is the chance to meet educators from different parts of the World and share insights. These sessions are also FREE.

It is the fourth time I am attending these sessions and they have definitely contributed a lot to my career and goals. I am taking "Multiliteracies for Social Networking and Collaborative Learning Environments" and "Teaching Languages in a Virtual World" this year. Although it is diffcult to take two sessions at the same time when working full time, I just couldn't decide which one to take so I decided to take two of them:) I hope I can survive!

Although the sessions have already started, it is still possible to register. You can see the list of these sessions in the following link:

I will be happy to read your reflections about EVO sessions. I hope you enjoy them.

Best wishes.
