One of our Week 3 assignments in BaW09 was to create a podcast. As I have said before, I hate listening to my own voice. Maybe the medium takes a little time to get used to, but I am just not comfortable with audio. I got all confused at the end (plus my microphone is bad), but I decided to post it anyway. So, here it is. Don't laugh.
I know it would be really useful to be able to create your own listening exercises. As I have said, maybe I'll get used to it in time (though i doubt it). Or maybe I'll wait till BaW09 to create my second podcast.
My name is Natasa Bozic Grojic and I am a teacher of English from Belgrade, Serbia. I teach adults and I have been in this job for 20 years.
I first got interested in Web 2.0 and blogging in January 2008 when I attended two EVO sessions - Becoming a Webhead and Blogging4Educators. That's when I started my first blog. I called it simply Natasa's blog.
I suffer from what I call Multiple Bloggonality Disorder. There are four personae in my blog right now - the Learner, the Teacher, the Geek and the Writer. The Learner goes to different workshops and online sessions and uses this blog to write homework. The Teacher is eager to share her experience and talk to other Teachers. She is particularly interested in student motivation and classroom dynamics. The Geek likes to try out new Internet tools. She is always happy to share her opinions and feelings about them. Finally, the Writer. She treats blogging as a writing exercise and thinks it is fun.
