Ayat Tawel

 

Hi  everyone !!

I'm Ayat Tawel, an EFL senior teacher from Cairo, Egypt. I have been teaching different age groups and levels for more than twelve years. I'm currently teaching young learners. My main interests are online teaching & learning, using web 2.0 tools in teaching and enhancing creativity in the classroom.

Joining BaW 11 was a turning point in my professional development and social life too. It has opened a door to a wonderful world full of amazing wonders and helpful language educators & friends. It's not just learning about new web 2.0 tools that you can apply in your teaching practice, but it also plans your life-long journey of PD. Since that time, I have conducted some successful international collaboration projects with teachers from different countries around the world and presented about them in online and f2f events and conferences. So, BaW is just the starting point to life after BaW which will be great !!! I have also gained many wonderful friends whom you will meet in BaW13 too !!

I'm very excited about joining such a wonderful group of webheads as a moderator for the second year. I'll be co-moderating weeks 2 & 3 ! Hope you all enjoy learning, and sharing in Baw13 !!

Cláudio Azevedo

 

 

Claudio Azevedo is a teacher at the Casa Thomas Jefferson, Brasilia, Brazil. He is a Branch Coordinator and Teacher Trainer as well. He really likes movies and seeing them with "different" eyes, trying to see how he can use them in his classroom. Recently, he has dedicated his ideas to grammar activities with movie segments because, apparently, teachers use movies for many purposes, but grammar. Working with movie segments fosters students' production and interest. He truly believes that grammar exercises should be attractive. This passion for movies gave him the idea of creating the very successful Blog  Movie Segments to Assess Grammar Goals. see also Movie Segments for Warm-ups and Follow-ups

Claudia Carril

My name is Claudia, I teach English in Uruguay and this is my 5th time at EVO.

During the previous years I learnt how to create websites, wikis, blogs, and the use of different tools in the classroom. My students work mostly with our wiki, our blog and Skype. Our school year starts in March and I'd like to surprise my students with new projects. I have a Bachelor in TESOL (University of London) and hope to have an MA in the future. I run a small language school in Montevideo where I teach children, teens and adults. I train students to take University of Cambridge and Trinity College examinations, but I also teach people who want to brush up their English to travel, for a job, or just for fun.

My wiki is: www.theenglishcorner.com.ar
