 Michelle Worgan

I have been teaching English since 1999, when I graduated with a degree in French and Spanish Studies and decided I wanted to go to live in Spain.

Since then, I have worked in Madrid, Naples, Granada and Jerez, teaching learners of all ages and abilities. I am especially interested in teaching and creating materials for young learners, and I often write about my ideas on my blog. I am also interested in CLIL and I designed my own course for five to seven year olds which you can find on the website I set up for it (see links below). I try to incorporate technology into my teaching, although I don't have many facilities to help me do so! I am very happy to join this team of moderators for EVO 2012. I will be co-moderating with some fantastic professionals onDigital Storytelling for Young Learners and I hope we will be able to share our experience with many teachers looking to try out new things with their classes.

David Dodgson

I'm David Dodgson, an EFL teacher at a private college in Ankara, Turkey. I've been working with young learners (aged 8-12) since 2002 and, over the last few years, I have started to explore effective use of technology in the classroom (albeit with limited resources at my disposal!) and give workshops at various conferences in Turkey and online. I have also recently completed an MA in Educaitonal Technology and TESOL with the University of Manchester.
I am proud to a part of the Digital Storytelling for Young Learners team, especially as several of my co-moderators have played an important role in the massive change that has come about for me professionally over the last 18 months through my PLN: the chance to guest blog on Barbara's Teaching Village really helped kick start my own blog; Özge was one of the first people to follow me on Twitter and helped me realise how it could be a great way to find and share resources; and Shelly has helped and encouraged me in so many ways, particularly with webinars and online conferences.

Dear moderators,
Nice to meet you!
It's my first contribution to EVO sessions but it's my second experience in online learning as I enrolled to the British Council CLIL Essentials in May 2012. I'm very happy to learn new things and communicate with people from different nationalities, but I'm a bit lost as I didn't know where I set up my profile; I need your help, Am I going to receive unit letters to guide me??
Kind Regards,
