It was around 2005 or 2006, I think, that the British Council started the Blogs section of their fabulous website www.teachingenglish.org.uk and all teaching professionals were invited and allowed to have their personal blogs there. After a couple of years they ended this feature and decided to moderate blogs more seriously, most probably to avoid copyright issues.
Now they have a group of associate bloggers who are dedicated ELT people who regularly share fabulous posts there. They also have a group of regular bloggers who are given specific topics for each month and they can post their ideas. You can see Feb. 2015 blog topics here. If you have something to say about any of these topics, here is a page where you’ll find the info on how to become a TeachingEnglish Blogger.
I joined them in 2007 when I was doing my CELTA and shared a couple of posts but, unsurprisingly, CELTA life was more demanding than I had expected so I counldn’t keep posting!
Now, after almost 8 years, I have posted there again. This time on ‘technology’ and what I have recently done to integrate it in my training sessions when there is no ‘internet’ connection in the venue.
Don’t forget to comment and share your favourite internet-free app there.
