WEEK 9 REFLECTION

This week we have to try different tools and implement them into our practice.
Even though Deborah told us to work with one option but I would like to try them all and created both site for my students and nicenet class for teachers whom I train these days.
In addition to these sites for collaboration we were given sites to create fun and intersting activities for our classes. I made several bingo games and an on-line crossword. Both these activities are on the same topic - my project one - "British Festivals"

Another activity we should do was to complete the survey. It gave me food for thought and I decided to create a survey for my teachers of ETTE project by British Council.
I am still working on it and hope to publish a link to it after completing. Survey was another very useful tool for me as a teacher.

What I really worry about is my project feed back and report...

  1. Dear Nilufar,

    I too decided to try more than one option. I believe we have to take this opportunity to benefit from the time spent on this course, though we are running out of it now.
    I am sure using online surveys with the teachers you train these days will impress them. The best thing I like about online surveys is the distance-gap they fill when the link is distributed online. Sudan is the largest county in Africa. So, when conducting researches or projects, a teacher can reach so many teachers as long as he/she has other teachers' emails.
    Don't worry about anything. They will all come together this week. We are almost there!!
    Best of luck.

  2. Dear Nilufar,

    your site looks great and it contains lots of valuable information for your students. Even if it's not at all easy to create it, even working on a template, it's worth the time and the efforts spent.

    Just like you and Hala, I tried all the tools provided this week as in this way I can remember them. Otherwise, I am sure I will forget they exist and I could never improve my teaching style.

    Good luck,
    Nadina

  3. Dear Nilufar,

    Same here, I couldn't come up with ideas in my discussion until after I had tried a number of the tools presented this week.

    It's a good idea to use online surveys with your students, Nilufar. I think we can also create our own online surveys to conduct a needs analysis of students. This will be easier to complete than the paper-and-pencil one.

    Yours,

  4. Dear Hala, Nadina and Mohamed.

    Thank you for supporting me.

    What I like in this class most of all is that we learn from Deborah's resources, links and instructions; from our peers' advice, recommendations and supports. And besides all these we learn from the tools Deborah uses to grade us, to do need analysis. When I saw that she sent our marks through snapgrade I decided to try it; when she sent us survey I wanted to create the syrvey for trainings. So in this class knowledge comes to us from everywhere. We just need a will to try it out.

    Good luck,
    Nilufar

  5. Hi Nilunfa,

    What you said about designing more than one tool was a great idea for me since you encouraged me to do the same. Thanks for this wonderful idea. You collaborate with although you didn't know that. Now I have designed several Internet tools for my classes.

    Yours,

    Zuleika
