The Electronic Village Online

Posted on January 17, 2009. Filed under: Blogroll, EVO - CALL IS - TESOL, Webheads |

I am a member of EVO (Electronic Village Online) sponsored by the CALL Interest Section of the 40-year-old, 14,000 member TESOL organization. Every January/February there are free workshops which each last 6 weeks. It is not necessary to be a member of TESOL to participate. The sessions are all powered by volunteers, mostly Webheads, and include experts in many fields related to EFL / ESL. Last year, I helped moderate the Video workshop, and this year I am one of 318 members of a new group called Images4Education (Also a must-see  http://images4education.ning.com/ )

Be sure to see the summaries of all the workshops at http://evosessions.pbwiki.com/Call_for_Participation09 

This is clearly the best year for EVO workshops, with so many competent experts and facilitators taking the time necessary to do great work.

This video is my first contribution to the session I joined. One of the tasks for the first week in Images4Education is to introduce yourself and to add a few words about your general use of images for education. One member of the team of moderators had the idea of asking all participants to post a picture of the view from their window. The results show that this was a brilliant task for all of us, a pleasure for all concerned, as we see at

and so many other URLs!

 This video is my way of completing this task. I could have used photos and text instead, but I had this idea…
