Hello! It's very exciting that there are so many people here from all over the world, so differant and alike in their enthusiasm. I'm a teacher of English from Nizhny Novgorod University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Russia. I've been teaching for 10 years. Last year I took part in evo, blogging4educators and practiced blogging with my students. I'm interested in studying this and other tools, how to organise students' independent work and motivate them to work outside the classroom. I also would like to get in touch with colleagues around the world to involve our students in international writing projects.
