Connecting Online

Visit Connecting Online COO9

My Ning addiction is getting worse!
Despite a very busy first week complemented by a number of technological challenges, one of them being the loss of interactivity of my whiteboard-I am already behind with the IWB challenge..-, I still managed to join another Ning Group, Connecting online.

Created by Nellie Deutsch and described as “A place to connect and share your "online" personal and professional learning experiences”, this groups already includes more than 200 members.

Nellie Deutsch is from Canada and she has been working on technology integration in the ESL/EFL classrooms since the early 1990s. She has been involved in collaborative projects and WebQuests via Moodle for the past 5 years and she is currently studying for a doctorate in educational leadership specializing in curriculum,and instruction online at the University of Phoenix. Her research focus is the use of web 2.0 tools in blended learning environments in higher education by teaching staff.
She has her own website and her blog is about exchanging ideas and best practices on how to integrate technology into face-to-face and online distance learning environments.

I was particularly happy to be indirectly involved in a conversation about online Friends started by Nicola Avery , eLearning Adviser at the University of Surrey.

This really is a great group, so come on come and join us!
