Welcome to our Food for Thought iEARN Project

Welcome to our Food for Thought Project!
My dear EFl students! Welcome to our Food for Thought Online Project ! We will be using this blog as our common interactive space to post our best pictures, essays, recipies, videos and power point presentations. Your first task for this week will be:
1) Post an introductory message with the following information included:
- your name
- where you are from
- what your favourite food is
- why you would like to participate in this project
- any interesting hobbies or special talents

We will join many other students from around teh world to study about food as part of the iEARN community - I will register you as iEARN participants, so that you can access the Project Webpage and tell us more:- how many countries participate in this project?- what kind of recipies do they publish online?- can you find an unusual recipe posted by a participant from a different country?Go to the Forum and explore it and be ready to talk about your findings in class!
All the best - see you online,Olga Ahramenco

Moldova in the Next Vista for Learning Video Online Library

Last semester my students and I worked on the iEARN / Next Vista for Learning Video Introduction to Communities Project - which aims to create an online library of free videos for learners everywhere - to help them find resources to learn just about anything, meet people who make a difference in their communities, and even discover new parts of the world. We are working on a series of slideshows and short videos which aim to introduce our country Moldova to the world. Have a look at my students' work and tell us what you think!I believe this is a great idea for teachers who want to involve their students in online collaborative projects involving image, slideshows and videos as means of communication.
