Paul Beaufait

Japan (from the U.S.) I teach English as an additional language & communicate to varying degrees in French & Japanese.

I joined the LWC group in February, during a lull in its activity and a burst of enthusiasm inspired by leaders of the Blogging for Beginners Electronic Village Online workshop (TESOL EVO, Jan. 15 - Feb. 25, 2007). I teach university students and coordinate teacher development activities. I have several blogs and wikis in progress, including: pab's potpourri, a first independent go at blogging (filtering & journaling); the LTD Project Blog & Wiki for teacher development; & the Writing Studio Blog & Wiki for university courses starting in April 2007. I'm learning to use various wikis: DokuWiki, MediaWiki, PBwiki, PmWiki, & Wikispaces.


Addenda: Since taking part in the mind-boggling Blogging for Educators TESOL EVO (Jan. 14. - Feb. 24, 2008), I've started using Pageflakes and Ning social networking sites, too (2008.04.03).

Dorothee Rölli
Bonn, Germany
Teacher of English and German
I'm a secondary school teacher of English and German literature and language. I taught both subjects for a number of years at a grammar school in Bonn, but I've changed to Business English now which I teach at the University of Applied Sciences in Remagen - on a part time basis. That's when computer assisted language learning came more into foucs. I've recently done a very interesting online workshop on digital images with electronic village. And I hope to be learning a lot more.
I can be contacted via my email.
