EFL Blogging School for Moldovan Teachers in the Regions
December, 1 2014
Twenty-five English teachers from around Moldova are participating in a new pilot project: using blogs to engage with their students online and increase their interest in learning English.
Participants from over 15 districts around the country are learning remotely, through Google Hangout sessions about how to engage students online and increase their interest in studying English using online tools. By the end of the project, the teachers will have learned how to create an entire class or school-wide blog: posting and editing entries, inviting team contributions for the blog, and commenting on other blogs are just a few of the assigned tasks for the participants.
The blogging project will culminate with a national conference in Chisinau, Moldova in February 2015. More than 150 EFL teachers and students are expected to attend the event. American Councils Moldova EFL Blogging School project participants will share their experiences and lead short workshops on the best web 2.0 tools for online language teaching and learning.
