Webheads in Action

Cris Costa has a new blog in which she writes about the wonderful Community of Practice that is the Webheads in Action. I totally agree with everything in her post! This marvelous community of EFL/ESL (and other) professionals is so supportive that I can overcome my fear of the unknown and try all sorts of new things. Next month, I will be trying a new challenge: that of presenting at an online conference, the second Webheads in Action Online Convergence! I am going to do a small presentation on the online gradebook that I use, Engrade. To do this, I am using FastStone for screen captures and Power Point; and I will need to learn to be a moderator at Alado or another virtual classroom. A stretch for me, but I can do it, with the help of my fellow webheads.
