Challenges are tests. Either you pass them and celebrate moving one step ahead or just surrender and stay still in your place. Since I opened my door to the online virtual world of wonders, my professional development as a teacher and my whole life have changed a lot. (Ayat Tawel, ELT teacher, iTDi Associate from Egypt)
I can only totally agree with the above quote written by my dear colleague Ayat Tawel. She has recently published a wonderful blog post for iTDi.pro - on the topic of Challenges, Projects and Opportunities and this has reminded me of how I got started. To tell you the truth, Ayat's story and mine are very similar. We both started at TESOL EVO session Becoming a Webhead in 2011 and somehow we ended up doing so many online things: learning, sharing, meeting wonderful and committed educators worldwide because we are #PD fanatics, as I have been told!
This summer it is all about PD. There have been many great and inspirational free online events. And now, at the moment it is all about #iTDiMOOC, a free four week online course that is happening at WiziQ. It has gathered so many wonderful teachers who are willing to share their ideas with everyone.
I presented at the iTDiMOOC as well, together with my dear colleague and a friend Marcia Lima, about our mutual (still in progress) BRAZ+CRO project. Marcia has written a wonderful post about it which you can read here.
If you want to invest more into your own personal development than #iTDiMOOC is the place for you.
HAVE a happy learning and get your own personal badge :)
