I got really exited thinking about Khan Academy and Tahrir Academy ;how they started and how much they’ve accomplished ,and how amazing that a work started by one or two people asking for volunteers could grew to be so inspiring; that my colleagues in the diploma and I thought this should be our project; a web for English teachers that could grew to be like these two.
Encouraged and guided by our instructor Dr Maha ;We’re trying to compose a survey to analyse; who are our audience? they could be the English teachers in Egypt or anybody who may be concerned with teaching English as a second language. what do they expect?What might interest them?Would they like to share their experience?information?Challenges they’ve met/overcame?
I started by asking myself as an Egyptian English teacher dealing with public school students/curriculum, learning at the AUC and trying to cop with the rapidly changing digital world.What would interest me on a web.I think I need low cost simple,doable effective ideas/games, for my classroom .I wish to find tutorial videos for me and others to show my students, and useful links about relevant subjects methodology psychology….maybe a space to comment,
I wish to find something to help me with my professional development ,(events/scholarships/websites)
A way to share with other teachers …………….and I need all these stuff to be easy to reach .
these were my first thoughts I’m discussing it with my school colleagues and I need to know what do you think would interest you in such a website…………..?
