"Hi again. I'm wondering if this Ning group is active or not, since I haven't seen any posts in the last week.
I don't plan to post multiple times per day here, but it would be pleasant to share some experiences, thoughts, ideas,…"
"I'm brand new to Ning and the PLN, so please be gentle! However, I've been teaching ESL and EFL now for about six years in Korea, Brunei, Australia (my home), briefly in China, but mainly in Taiwan.
I'm looking forward to sharing with…"
"Thanks Tom! Couldn't agree more, Twitter is like a great staffroom where I meet these amazing educators. I gave it a try in July last year and I'm still overwhelmed by its possibilities. For those who doubt its usefulness, here is a great…"
I am going for my doctorate at Argosy University. I am taking a course in Human Resource Management that requires an interview from an ESL administrator. Could you fill out my 5 question, 15 minute survey.
The survey delves into how ESL administrators or instructors meet the academic needs of their students when their primary language is not English? What legal issues do they face with their students in their educational institutions?
Results of the survey will satisfy partial requirements of a doctorate in Educational Leadership.
The doctoral studies are on management practices that could help the United States' schools meet the No Child Left Behind requirements.
I just read your article at Barbara's blog. Let me tell you, I strongly agree with you in relation to "language should work as a vehicle for learning, as opposed to being the learning objective by itself" as you say.
Congratulations and wishing you lot of success.

Leading change to help school practitioners embrace not only technology in teaching but in assessment, grading, and outcomes can be a challenge. Systemic, meaningful change from an environment of rote learning to the collaborative nature in a 1:1 environment can be met with resistance. With his experience as an implementation change agent, Dr. Dillon served as coach, mentor and guide for school leaders and School Improvement Teams embarking on this change.As the picture of how to best support…See More
I ask a student to attach a file to an email and I get a blank stare.I tell the class to open a new tab so they have two websites open at the same time and I have to show them how to do that a few times.I assume that since they are growing up with technology they naturally know how to use it, but I am shown on a daily basis that this is not the case. They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
