  Anne Fox
Yahoo ID: foxdenuk
I started teaching English in 1996 after moving to Denmark in 1993 from Britain. The vocational training centre where I first found part time work is very keen on distance and open learning and I have had some great ICT training and opportunities to experiment with online course development. I have just finished the online element of an oral skills course so the issue of building an online community is very pertinent to me right now. Since my institution has just bought the WIMBA VoiceBoard system (on my recommendation) it looks as though they believe that this is the future. The website for helping learners of French is a hobby (I am half French). My course website is password protected and partly in Danish.

Just call me Ali , that's easy to remember... I'm an English teacher trainer here in Rabat, the capital of Morocco. I have been mainly trained in applied linguistics and language teaching methodology. My IT/CALL training has been very very patchy and I think I'm still toddling at the CALL threshhold. I like swimming and, until further notice, cybersurfing too! And like Dave, I have my share in another tremendous job with our two daughters...but it's a lot of fun too.

I've been teaching EFL and ESP in Brazil since 1995.

Normally, I teach ESP for architecture students at Universidad Simon Bolivar, in Caracas, Venezuela.

One of the key aspects of our courses is the creation and, more importantly, the maintenance of a lively language learning community. To do this we use various synchronous and asynchronous means of communication so anything I learn about other people's experience in virtual communities will be very interesting.

My name's James/Jim (your choice) Farmer . You can get a rather dodgy picture of me (and some students work) at the bottom of:'s%20mail.html (I'm the one on the right!). I teach general and academic English at La Trobe University Language Centre where I also coordinate their CALL & ICT needs (from a pedagogical rather than technical POV). I ended up in Australia in January 2000 via Japan & the U.K. and am planning on staying here indefinitely. I'm extremely interested in 'unplugging' CALL (i.e. escaping from these huge materials driven CALL packages and looking at what really makes courses tick, i.e. people!), and Yahoo! groups usage in teacher development and with students as a big part of that. I'm looking forward to this!

My Tapped In perspective:
My homepage index:
After working as an early childhood educator, in 1995 I did a bachelor of educational communication and multimedia. As this field was so new, I found the Internet the only way to get inspired, informed and involved in educational online communities, such as Webheads, Tapped In, and the Global Educators Network. Now I am a free lance essayist and lecturer, an external examiner at the social educators' colleges, and finishing a masters study of theoretical education at the Danish University of Education in Copenhagen.. Despite my interest in foreign language, I have no credentials for teaching it; I am an EFL learner in practice.

I love computers, the Internet and keeping up with friends, cyberpals, and job-related developments through email. I did my first online course last October and really enjoyed the experience.

I taught EFL in London in the 1970s and Sweden from 1980. Since 1986 have worked mainly in Swedish-to-English translation (which often involves teaching clients). Now interested in getting back into teaching more directly, this time 'virtually' (e.g. by interactive, personalised e-mail courses) rather than in a real classroom, and not only with Swedish students. My 'Sweet Clarity' newsletter contains language-related articles and I write teaching material. Plan to make the articles and material available on my web site when (if ever) I finally get my act together and launch one! Interested in partnership with a kindred spirit for this purpose.

After teaching ESL for 20 years I started working full time in software development (2 years) and consulting in and coordinating CALL implementations (ever since). I missed the classroom but soon found that I could continue teaching online. Actually, I don't believe there is such a thing as language teaching, only language learning, so more correctly I've been experimenting with multimedia synchronous and asynchronous communications tools to promote authentic communication among students, and more recently, among peers. I conceived this session as a continuation of these experiments. I hope you will enjoy participating.
