EVO – The Art of Curation and Discovery in Professional Development

Just came across George Siemens’s insights “A curatorial teacher acknowledges the autonomy of learners, yet understands the frustration of exploring unknown territories without a map. A curator is an expert learner. Instead of dispensing knowledge, he creates spaces in which knowledge can be created, explored, and connected. … A curator balances the freedom of individual […]

We need to get hold of our own professional development perspective and analyze […]

Share, Learn, Connect

A presentation format in which we have 20 slides sliding through automatically in 20 seconds! In 6 minutes and 40 seconds, we were challenged to deliver our message. Even more demanding was […]

Blended Learning

Blended learning can take different shapes if you consider a regular face-to-face classroom with the use of online tools to supplement the learning process that takes place within brick and mortar spaces. Also, if you […]

Rewarding Networks

Yesterday was delightfully exciting. Never have I worked so hard and intensively in different projects for the school I work for and my volunteer work in the communities I’m part of . No complaints. All the effort has been paying off. First, I got to know that our proposal to present in the TESOL international […]
