Avealmec present at Tesol-English Village Online 2009

Starting on January 12th, 2009 and during 6 six weeks, three Avealmec members: Teadira Pérez (ULA-Mérida), Miguel Mendoza (UCV) and I, Evelyn Izquierdo (UCV) had the honour of moderating one of the prestigious Tesol-English Village Online (EVO) sessions and being mentored by Dafne González (USB), a well recognized Webhead and Avealmec member.

The session was called Blog-based lesson and e-portfolios. Its main objective was providing the basic orientations to design a blog-based lesson and how to use e-portfolios to follow up students' performance. We had around 120 participants from all over the world, which made it a very interesting teaching and learning experience.

For the instruction, we used several Web 2.0 tools, such as: Yahoo Groups, Tapped in, WiZiQ, Voicethread, Skype, Twitter, Blogger, Wordpress, Slideshare, Toastmaker, You Tube, Teachertube, Google search, Google docs, Diigo, and Polldaddy, among others.

Here are some slides that show a little bit what we did in our first online, hands-on workshop.
