21 Touches

We depend upon the fine products, services and information that we obtain from reputable vendors and manufacturers -- we depend upon them for the success of our organizations. Then why is it that so many encounters with sales reps leave us feeling, well, cheap?

Technology and Relationships as a Teacher

I embrace technology. It is one of the best friends we have in education today. However, the benefits of technology will not begin to reach their greatest potential until we get to know the personalities of every student and build trusting relationships with them. There is no substitute for RELATIONSHIPS. The financial cost is low; the emotional cost is high but being successful, as a teacher demands it!

Experimental students used the online course from home as the internet was inaccessible from campus. Both groups were pre and post-tested. The impact of online instruction on cultural awareness, the relationship between the online course… Continue

Online Instructiion and Creative Writing

In the past six semesters I have used online courses in teaching EFL courses to freshman students. Blackboard and Nicenet were used as a supplement to in-class instruction. We used our PC's and internet connection from home. Students posted stories and poems that they read on the internet or in books and liked to share, and wrote short paragraphs related to the themes covered in class and textbook. I encouraged them to write for communication and not to worry about grammatical and spelling… Continue

In the past six semesters I have used online courses in teaching EFL courses to freshman students. Blackboard and Nicenet were used as a supplement to in-class instruction. We used our PC's and internet connection from home. Students posted stories and poems… Continue
