Please introduce yourself...
I'm Giovanni Fulantelli, from the Italian National Research Council, researching on elearning methodologies; I'm here to transfer some of the results of the former EU funded project Sloop.
I enjoy Istanbul, as well as Budapest! Great towns I didn't know before!
I can't play golf, but love to drive my motorbike!
sorry if I'm late.
I'm a language teacher in a Secondary school from the south of Italy.
Last year I've been involved in a very interesting training for teachers called "Muvenation" about teaching and learning with MUVE's.
I'm very interested in using the technologies and web 2.0 tools with students and in the use of Moodle. (I've only tested some of the tools of Sloodle but I'd like to test them with students too).
I had never heard about this project (TENEGEN) before but it appears to be very interesting for me
nice to find an Italian teacher here.
I think you can find here many interesting themes.
Tenegen is a Transfer of Innovation project based on the results of a previous SLOOP project. We are developing another TOI project based on SLOOP in Italy: Sloop2desc.
A first version of a e-learning course "Progettare e sviluppare risorse didattiche e corsi in rete basati sullo standard EUCIP" is arriving at the end just in these days. A new version of such a course will be delivered from next November.

All the best
you are not too late - this is an experiment here - we are not in a hurry :)! Please go around, read the instructions for the first week (this week is the first for you!), and start your blog inside the Moodle or with Blogger as you like! Or - may be you have a blog already, have you?
Ps: I am LdV coordinator and evaluator too - it is not an easy job, do you agree?
My name is Elisiana (short name Eli). I teach English in a Foreign Language High School in the outskirts of Florence, Italy. I am really interested in learning how to handle the most common ICT tools as I want to be up-to-date and show my students that even non digital natives (like me ...) are able to catch up with the newest tools!!! So I am eager and ready to learn and to practice here. Sometimes I feel a bit frustrated, though and I wonder whether I will be able to cope with it. What's more, I feel there is this sort of mania among students and teachers (just few teachers) about technology which puzzles me a bit: are we going to totally rely on these methods? To be technological or not to be technological, that is the question... or better how much technological should we be?
To answer your other questions concerning technology, I can tell you, that you are not alone! In the Hungarian course many teachers took part from social sciences being not familiar with ICT at all. The advantages of web 2.0 is just the possibility to collaborate online without being very trained in technology. One of the aims of this course just to get to closer to this world, which seemed to be really frustrating at the first look. However we have to be aware: information technology is in a heavy development, and it gives real innovations - but it has not been able to help the human beeings at the expectable level yet. These tools are marvellous really, and represents the creatitivity of humans, but we have to know, that at the background they are stupid machines :)!
Ps: Sorry to write so much :(, this lengths does not suit on a forum!
