Writing in SEETA Online Community this Week

Dear readers,

I just want to tell you that from June 20-24, 2011, I will write in SEETA Online Community. It is a collaborative on-line community of twelve Teachers' Associations in South Eastern Europe run by volunteers. You will find many free online courses, conferences reports & discussions about many areas of teaching English. You can also be their regular monthly guest blogger as me now. In this week, I will talk about my wiki project that I designed this year with my first-year secondary school students.

If you are interested in this project, please visit me there at this page:

Youtube is my New Teacher in the 21st Century

Youtube is one of the web 2.0 tools that I use increasingly in my daily life. All the time, you can find me watching, uploading, downloading or searching for videos. I use them most in learning new things. Whenver I decide to learn something, I go to Youtube website and search for it. It is very beneficial for me as I can see and apply at the same time. Today, I have decided to collect all videos created by Lee LeFever.

His videos are concerned with the web 2.0 tools. He explains the idea of each tool in a very interesting way. Please, watch them and leave your comments.

Invitation For Participation

I have designed a wiki with my first-year secondary students (They are between 15-16 years old). The main objective of this wiki is to invite tourists from all over the world to come back to Egypt after the events of 25th Jan. Revolution. Each student has created a page and selected a topic to write about. At the end of our project, we have created a very wonderful collection of topics that are considered a strong invitation to all people to come and visit Egypt again. To see our work, please click the picture below:

Now we need some teachers with their students to participate in this wiki. It is just a very exciting experience for both of us. If you like the idea of collaboration, please contact me or join our wiki.

Waiting for your collaboration!
