Title: The ESL-WOW Project
Description: Claire Bradin Siskin will describe the ESL Writing Online Workshop (ESL-WOW) Project, which she directs. ESL-WOW, currently under development, will be a website designed to guide non-native speakers of English through each stage of the pre-writing, while-writing, and post-writing processes. Once the materials have been created, ESL-WOW will be available to all individuals and educational institutions across the country. Siskin will outline the development process, and she will also seek feedback and suggestions from her fellow Webheads.
This event is part of a participant-driven professional development series planned as a part of the ongoing (since 1998) Webheads in Action professional development series, most recently with the involvement of the TESOL Arabia EdTech SIG. The events take place at 13:00 GMT each Sunday (5 pm in UAE).
The event actually starts at noon GMT (4 p.m. in the UAE) when teaching practitioners gather at http://tappedin.org for informal text chat. At 13:00 GMT (5 p.m. in the UAE) we move to the presentation venue, either Elluminate at http://tinyurl.com/y3eh, or Adobe Connect at http://connect.pi.ac.ae/taedtech.
The event this week will take place in Elluminate http://tinyurl.com/y3eh
