Cláudio Azevedo



Claudio Azevedo is a teacher at the Casa Thomas Jefferson, Brasilia, Brazil. He is a Branch Coordinator and Teacher Trainer as well. He really likes movies and seeing them with "different" eyes, trying to see how he can use them in his classroom. Recently, he has dedicated his ideas to grammar activities with movie segments because, apparently, teachers use movies for many purposes, but grammar. Working with movie segments fosters students' production and interest. He truly believes that grammar exercises should be attractive. This passion for movies gave him the idea of creating the very successful Blog  Movie Segments to Assess Grammar Goals. see also Movie Segments for Warm-ups and Follow-ups

Ayat Tawel

Hi everyone !!

I'm Ayat Tawel, an EFL teacher from Cairo, Egypt. I have been teaching different age groups and levels for more than ten years. I'm currently teaching young learners. My main interests are online teaching &learning and enhancing creativity in the classroom.  Joining BaW 11 was a turning point in my professional development and social life too. It has opened a door to a wonderful world full of amazing wonders and helpful language educators& friends. It's not just learning about new web 2.0 tools that you can apply in your teaching practice, but it also plans your life-long journey of PD. So, BaW is just the starting point to life after BaW which will be great !!! I have also gained many wonderful friends whom you will meet in BaW12 too !! I'm very excited about joining such a wonderful group of webheads moderating Baw12. I'll be co-moderating weeks 2 & 5! Hope you all enjoy learning, and sharing in Baw12 !!

I am Marijana Smolčec (Smolcec) from Ogulin, Croatia. I am a teacher of English and Croatian language and literature, but have only been teaching English for the past 10 years at a secondary school Gimnazija Bernardina Frankopana.

Since then I have worked on several projects with my students, started a penpal wiki and Skype interview project with a colleague from Uruguay and her students, had a webinar for Croatian school leaving students at www.mojamatura.net , attended many online conferences and met so many great people that are now my PLN. I have really worked a lot and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I am happy to be joining Baw12 this year as a moderator. I will be moderating week 2, 3 and 4 with some great teachers.

Our school year starts in March and I'd like to surprise my students with new projects. I have a Bachelor in TESOL (University of London) and hope to have an MA in the future.
