Nellie Deutsch

My name is Nellie (Muller) Deutsch. My formal educational background is varied but my informal studies are even more so. I have a BA in English literature and linguistics, an MA in education specializing in curriculum and technology, and am currently completing a doctoral program in educational leadership specializing in curriculum and instruction at the University of Phoenix online. I have been teaching English as a foreign language for over 30 years and integrating technology into the ESL/EFL classroom since the 1990s. I have been involved in international collaborative projects and WebQuests via Moodle for the past 5 years. My first website, Nellie's English Projects was an experiment that evolved from a WebQuest and started me off as a webmistress in the days of html before web 2.0 tools. I facilitate online (Blended and full) and face-to-face workshops on how to use Wikieducator as a collaborative tool to improve instruction and learning and conduct online workshops and conferences. I also moderate live online workshops for Electronic Village Online which is a project of TESOL's CALL Interest Section, storytelling and cultures, and integration of technology and web 2.0 tools into the classroom on WiZiQ.

I am passionate about learning and am currently completing my doctoral studies in educational leadership specializing in curriculum,and instruction online at the University of Phoenix and writing my dissertation. I am researching blended learning and instructor use of technology in higher education. In my spare time, I mentor educators on how to integrate web 2.0 tools for instruction and learning. I would like to see e-learning available and free worldwide.

I am interested in collaborative and engaged learning, social networking, philosophy, mindfulness meditation practice, the Alexander Technique, art, writing and poetry. I am looking forward to collaborating with other educators on the best ways to integrate technological tools in order to facilitate and improve instruction and learning.

Gladys Gahona

My name is Gladys Gahona. I am a mexican private teacher on Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. In 1977, in order to economically support my studies, I started teaching math at a secondary school. In 1981 I graduated in chemical engineering at Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (UADY), in Mérida, Yucatán, México. During the last years of my university studies, I worked at UADY at the former Planning Department (today General Coordination of Planning and Institutional Assessment) where I had the opportunity to be assitant of several educational researchers, working in collaborating projects along with several mexican and foreign universities. In 2002 I postgraduated in Technology Management at UADY.

Although my professional formation is oriented to engineering, productivity, business and technology management, I've loved teaching since ever. My job (Asesor MFQ academy, in Cancun, Q.Roo, México) consists on tutoring and providing counseling to learners of secondary & early tertiary level, helping them on homework, or preparing them for examinations. There is a special group I love to work with, adult people. They are confident and enthusiastic learners, they always give the best of them.

The knowledge I have gained on teaching/tutoring comes from my personal experiences and self-studies. I'm also been a self learner in computing, web programing, ITC and web 2.0 platforms and tools. Since last November I have had the privilege to meet Nellie Deutsch who has become an inspiring mentor to me on improving my english language as well as moderating live online conferences, facilitating online courses, and integrating technology to education. Now I dedicate my professional life to my two passions: teaching and learning, particullary learning by doing and learning by "helping". =)
