Hi! My name is Helen Onyshchenko. I'm from Brovary, Ukraine. I've been teaching English for 8 years at state secondary schools. During the last 4 years I was teaching young learners. I like incorporating technologies into my teaching process, but I used to think that technologies are for middle-school and senior students, not for primary ones. I guess this great on-line course will prove that I was terribly wrong :)

Hello! I'm Alexandra from Moscow, Russia. I've been teaching English for 6 years and most of my teaching practice I've been teaching kids. I believe it's the most challenging and at the same time engaging and rewarding thing, especailly when at the end of the lesson your kids say: "Oh no! Is it really the end of the lesson?" I hope this online course will help me to make my lessons even more interesting and entertaining for my little learners.

Ellen Douglas

Hi! Im Ellen Douglas from Hickory, North Carolina in the southeastern US. Ive been teaching kids between the ages of 5 and 10 for about 14 years now and of all the jobs Ive had, its hands-down the best! I grew up in North Carolina but lived for about 20 years in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania after meeting my husband there in graduate school. We raised two children who are now out on their own. Ive lived in Austria, Germany, England, the former Yugoslavia (Serbia, to be exact), and we spent most of a year in the Galapagos Islands when our kids were 12 and 14. Were happy to have settled down in one place, though, where we can spend a lot of time in our vegetable garden and grow great things to eat all year round. I am very much looking forward to learning new ways of using technology with my students and especially to hearing about the experiences of people from all over the world! (The picture shows me in a Hmong rice paddy NOT in Thailand, but just a few miles down the road in western North Carolina! We have a lot of Hmong immigrants here.) Participants#view=page

Kay von Randow

Hello, I'm Kay von Randow,originally from England, but I've been happily living in Germany since 1986. I studied Music and English at Birmingham University School of Music, followed by a PGCE, also at Birmingham University. I decided to move to Germany after visiting Wrzburg with the Southend-on-Sea Junior Chamber Music Group and falling in love with the beautiful trees in that city. My relationship to trees has flourished ever since. I've been teaching ESL in the Rhineland since 2000, in companies: in groups and one-on-one as well as giving English coaching to school children. My speciality is creating a Safe Space for my students so they can relax, feel at home and open up to actually communicating their thoughts and feelings. I love being generally creative, whether in the fields of music, vegetarian cooking, digital art, writing stories and articles, creating teaching worksheets ...... I just love the creative experience. I would describe myself as being a feeling, intuitive person, not someone born with a leaning towards technical aspects. It takes me on average longer than the 'norm' to understand the technical side of a software programme, and despite having designed my own website, used graphic art software, used Siblelius and Logic Studio to edit my music, I'm still rather daunted by new learning curves. My connection to children comes not only through being a mother and teacher, but also in a love of the innocence of childhood, and the sweetness of their excperience of Life. I really want to be able to create stories which link with feelings, and the digital field is exactly what I want to explore to see if i can use this medium ...... which is why I'm here. Being a composer, I'm also interested in using music.

Chiyuki Yanase

Hi, everyone. I am Chiyuki Yanase from Tokyo, Japan. Am I a city girl? No! I live in Hino, located at the west edge of Tokyo, where two rivers flow and Mt. Fuji view can be enjoyed on a fine day. I love walking around the beautiful nature, swimming in a river and doing Yoga at a park when it is warm enough. I teach at a local nursery school once a week and have a tiny school, Sunny Field English, where I enjoy discovering the world of English with kids, aged 6 to 23. The most mischievous and cheekiest one of all is me, constantly coming up with new tricks to play on grown-ups. We, SEF gangs, love stories and our favorite activity is to make a ridiculous story as we laugh together. After learning Digital storytelling with all of you, I hope I can share some of our crazy stories with the world. Hello from Serbia! My name is Sasa Strahinjic. I have been teaching English as a foreign language at a state school for about seven years. I work with young learners and teenagers. I am quite interested in technology and innovative approaches. Having in mind that digital tools and resources are precious components of the process of teaching English, I find it extremely interesting to integrate them with the practice of storytelling. I hope that the use of web tools which will be introduced here will additionally motivate the kids I teach and enrich my teaching practice. Friendly regards!

Catherine Littlehale Oki

Hello. I live in Japan teaching EFL in 4 different contexts. 1) an extended program, where we do things like yoga, crafts and planting flowers or tracing our bodies to track growth. Whenever possible, I try to use a book to introduce themes, but I also use music and sometimes videos. 2) an English conversation school, where kids aged 2-6 come once a week for only 50-60 minutes. Here I use lots of music, stories and my own materials. The book I have been working on is called Happy Valley and is for kindergarten age kids. 3) an elementary school with 40 kids in a class, once or twice a week for 45 minutes. We use PowerPoint to make class content, using stories, videos and music. I teach 9-12 year olds. 4) an after school program at the elementary school with up to 12 kids and 70 minutes. We focus a lot on phonics, hearing stories and playing games. In this program I have made a huge library of readers for students to take home. I am discovering a real passion for teaching reading, but I also love using music, movement and many activities to build the foundation from which children can learn to read in English. Are others teaching in a similar context? I am really wondering about that and how you teach reading. I have an MA in TEYL from the Participants#view=page

Hello people, I am still learning how to use all tools but I am really exited about learning to use new technological tools. I have been a teacher for 7 years. I love storytelling, because I am very kinesthetic and you can have a lot of movement during a storytelling. I hope to have a nice and productive course. Hi everyone. My name is Caroline Mahoney and I'm from Newcastle, Australia. I'm working as an Education Officer with the Community Languages Schools program and want to be able to show teachers how to use digital storytelling with their students.

Rabia Akay

Hello everyone, I am an EFL teacher for 9 years, from Amasya, Turkey. I have been working as a teacher trainer for the board of education since last year. I used to think that I was good at using technology but everything changed so qucikly. It is really difficult to keep up with it unless you attend courses like this and share with each other. I want to develop my skills and engage my students to my lesson through more enjoyable learning environment.

Heather Davis
My name is Heather Davis. I am from Ontario, Canada but am in my 8th year teaching Primary/Elementary students at an international school in Beijing, China. I have been a teacher for 38 years and have watched the classroom change from white chalk and blackboards to interactive boards and computers. The one part that has stayed the same is the students and the necessity to prepare them for their future which for the most part will consistent of careers and tasks that are as of yet unknown. Therefore, as I see it, my job is to prepare myself in whatever manner possible to support their education.

I became aware of all things Web 2.0 about five years ago and immediately fell in love with the possibilities. As I am a life long learner it is important and enjoyable to learn anything that will allow me to create authentic IT experiences in the classroom with hands on experience and not just pedagogy. This course will help in that pursuit. email - twitter - @toadie1951 Skype - heatheratschool

Hi my name is Jess. I live and work at Waihi Beach in New Zealand. I am teaching 5 year olds this year. I am still on summer vacation for another 3 weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to enjoy the beach if the weather improves and there will be no more debris from The Rena (a ship that has ended up on a reef by Waihi Beach).

DianeHorvath Hello, I am living in MetroWest Boston, Massachusetts (US). Although I was born and raised in the suburbs of Milwaukee, WI and have also lived in Virginia Beach, VA and Columbus, OH. This is most likely my final destination:) I've been teaching special education for about 19 years. Most of my experience is teaching a self-contained classroom/program for Participants#view=page



DigitalStorytelling4Kids [licensed for non-commercial use only] / Past Participants students with mild/moderate cognitive disabilities grades 2-5. In Ohio, I was apart of the development of the Virtual Public Charter School movement- helping to structure and develop online learning with the role as a curriculum writer/ special education teacher too. Now, in MA, I am back in the more tradition settingteaching in an inclusion setting for students with learning disabilities, dyslexia, autism, NLD, etc. However, my end goal is to eventually transition into an instructional or assistive technology specialist. (Wish me luck!) Being in this field, I have always searched for tools and resources to support students' motivation and individual learning needs/styles. Technology has been a huge component of that. I look forward to continuing to learn more and grow from this course and from all of you!

I've been teaching young children (aged 6-12) for over 10 years. I currently work in a public primary school in the north part of Taiwan. Since our native language is Mandarin and the learning time for students is limited to 80 minutes per week in school , my students' English proficiency is very quite limited. I hope I can learn from a lot of great resources here to help my students to advance their language skills. I also like collaborative projects from different part of the world. I look forward to my personal growth to benifit my students from sharing and giving. Check out my teaching blog at:

Tamaki Yoshizawa

Hello eveyrone! My name is Tamaki and I live in Tokyo, Japan. I work for a publisher - sadly I'm not a teacher now. I'm an editor hoping to go back to teaching someday soon. I do teach on weekends, though - I have one 3 year old student (my friend's daughter) and I recently started to teach at an English club where I get to meet 10-15 year olds. I've been having a blast with this course - I LOVE stories, making them, thinking about how I can use them in classrooms, editing them, drawing pictures for them - everything! :) My bookshelf is full of picturebooks for kids! Hi everyone! Sorry I am a wee bit late joining in. Contrary to popular belief, January is not a quiet month :) I am going to try to catch up with all of ye as soon as I can! Go go gadget brain. I have been teaching in Japanese high schools in Hokkaido for the last few years. This is my first EVO session. I came across the site by accident and I am so glad I did. It is great to have a space to practice using digital tools but more importantly, to have the support from others to learn from. Cheers. My students are all great at drawing and anime and stuff like that so I want to learn how to use more stories in the classroom instead of them drawing pictures of me because they are bored ( `) I am also taking part in the EVO Podcasting Session this month (lots of fun too!).
