At MELTA, the Munich English Language Teachers’ Association that I’m a part of, there are many teachers who are very frustrated about new media. There it is, they can see it, they can smell it, they can taste it, but they just can’t get their hands on it.
There are techie blogs out there, sure, Nik Peachey (http://nikpeachey.blogspot.com) is my favorite, but they’re “so high-igh-igh above me” and that does make many of us teachers feel old or out of it. Well, if there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s when good teachers with deep knowledge feel like idiots. That is one of the things that we really need to change.
So dear twittering Lucy built a blog for us about a year ago. We kept it under wraps because we wanted to promote the MELTA Forum (http://www.melta.de/meltaboard/index.php). But that’s been one lame duck from day one. It looks bad, it’s hidden behind a web page, you need to register to post. Blech. So here goes a relaunch: Let’s build Ask Auntie Web into the blog it could be. Curious? Come see Auntie Web here:
Go, Auntie, go!
