Dekita.org – Open and Participatory Media in ELT – started in 2005
The Electronic Village Online (EVO) is a professional development project and virtual extension of the TESOL Convention offered by the the CALL Interest Section of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, Inc. (TESOL). I was involved in three sessions (submitting, planning, organizing, moderating).
The Blogstreams Salon (from 2005 to 2008)
The Blogstreams Salon was created at Tappedin during the Evonline 2005 Session to hold meetings with guests and experts who presented on their areas of expertise. Both sessions were co-moderated by Aaron Campbell, Graham Stanley and I and we welcomed all teachers interested in blogging and international webpublishing projects. The first synchronous get-togethers in this room happened during the Evonline 2005 weblogging session. From March 2005 to 2008, we continued inviting guests and also met to chat informally, sort out teachers’ doubts, examine and discuss innovative work and international web publishing projects. In 2005 this happened on every Sunday at 21:00 GMT and from 2006 to 2008 , the encounters took place on the first Sunday of each month.
These sessions were created and initially led by Phil Benz. In 2002 I co-moderated some and took over the sessions in 2003 as Phil was busy and did not have the time to fully attend to them.
