TEN THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ONLINE TEACHERS
1) Edupreneurs like to explore new frontiers of mind & technology
It’s hard to reflect on 2012 without mentioning my big lead into online teaching via the Edupunk in 2010. I was a new teacher online who was very keen to gain experience with WiZiQ technology and experiment with brain-based learning and edutainment experiments. Led by George Machlan, known as The Edupunk, a group of teachers and I worked together with the purpose of holding public open classes on language learning via creativity and fun. During that time I not only got used to the technology, but learnt to love the synergy of group classes across global cultures, and tapping into the creativity of students from all walks of life.
