Ahlan wa Sahlan - اهلاوسهلا

For the Arabic teachers, I am planning on adding new things for those who took the workshop last year, work with them closely on continuing to develop what they have learned last year, but above all, working with all of you, one on one, to meet your own needs. After you sign up fro the workshop, I'll be e-mailing you a questionaire, which will help me determine your immediate needs and this way I can design my part of the workshop accordingly.

Here are some of the things I have so far in mind. However, I am always open to any suggestions and anything you need (that I know how to do):
  • Improving your syllabus and adding technology components to it
  • Learn how to use the Internet more effectively, i.e. downloading videos from YouTube, etc.
  • Create your own attractive and effective multimedia PowerPoint
  • Create your own Blog or Wiki
  • Create your own videos (educational videos or music videos) with 1, 2, 3 steps
  • Using Blackboard more effectively
A workshop is as good as its participants and not its facilitator. The best workshops are those, in which the participants create their own materials with the guidance of a facilitator. I don't want you to copy what I do. I believe that you should learn how to use technology to meet your own needs, and therefore, the workshop will be tailored according to the needs of the participants.

Here are some important documents that you may download to be used in your classes:
