Kudos to Vance and Tere
- Hi, all,
I received the spring 2004 issue of Essential Teacher
in the mail yesterday. (It's TESOL's new magazine sent to all
members.) On page 32, there is an article by Vance
Stevens named "Tools for Building Online Communities." It is, of
course, well written and mentions many of the tools both paid and
free that ESL instructors can use. I even learned about an ESL
chat site I hadn't heard of before: http://www.study.com
Teresa Almeida d'Eca has written another wonderful article about us
(WiA) named "Cybersights" on p.59 of the same magazine.
Nice job, Vance and Tere!
BTW, for those of you who are not TESOL members, I checked the web
links, and neither of these articles are included in the "Compleat
Links" at http://www.tesol.org/pubs/magz/et/compleat/index.html. I
guess they can't very well put the magazine online and still expect
people to pay for membership. However, you can read six other
articles related to the themes of the current issue.
- Dear Chris,
Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you liked the short article. I haven't
had the chance to read anything, not even Vance's article. Hopefully, on the
It was a very nice surprise to be with Vance in the same issue.
Looking forward to meeting you f2f in LB.

Online proposal titled "Professional Development through 2004 EV
Online Sessions" has been accepted for TESOL's 2004 Internet Fair in
Long Beach, California. Our part is organized by Christine Bauer-
ramazani/TESOL/2004/InternetFair/EV2004.htm. Webheads hope to be
presenting live and online during the time indicated. The schedule of
presentations is here:
Friday, April 2, 22:00 to 23:00 GMT - at The Internet Classics Fair
we connect conference participants with members of the Webheads
community of practice who will join online from locations distant
from the conference. As I have done at this conference the previous
two years, I will set up a web cam and use this and voice chat
software to enable the local and distant participants to communicate
and interact with one another. According to the invitation: "This
invitation is based on the high quality of the presentation you gave
for either the 2002 or 2003 TESOL Internet Fair. This "invitation
only" forum will feature the best presentations from the past few
years of Internet Fair presentations. It is a means to bring back
some of the best, thus providing access to those who may have missed
these exceptional examples of Internet use for ESL/EFL instruction."
Webheads intend to be presenting live and online during the time
For these events, meet at http://www.tappedin.org and move on to
Yahoo web cam and whatever voice portal seems suitable at the time.
