AR.... is it possible?

Well, apparently my goal will be to dessign an on-line course for ACTION RESEARCH focusing on Reading and Writing skills. As Karen properly asked me (I'm still looking for the answer) we need to find a way to include a meaningful way for our learners to apply everything they learn about it without havinf the "face-2-face" advantages.
Blogs have been one of the coolest experiences for me so far, and after checking out the site JAckie posted, we can definitely include this as a way to develop writing skills and critical thinking thoughout the course.

More challenges?

With 4 kids, it was almost impossible to have time for myself, but i never saw my job as WORK, therefore, I enjoyed every opportunity with my students and how I could help them.
Years have passed and when I look back, I guess those challenges were faced accordingly but I think I still need a lot of things to learn, this course is an example......
OMG I've always been a student who likes to excel, but with this new challenge is almost impossible for me to do it, many new things, new tools to learn, so little time, i'm not 20 aymore (even if I look so :)!) sometimes it is overwhealming.
But in the end, more challenges are to be faced gracefully, as always, battles are to be fought, sucess to be enjoyed and failures to learn from them.
So, here I am, with more challenges to face, so I say:
Bring them on!!!!!!

First of all, I would like to share some stuff about me: Business Engineer wit ha M.A. in TEFL gotten last year. Married for almost 20 years, 4 kids, my oldest goes to medical school nd plans to be a Forensic Doctor.... cool for her!
I have been teaching since 1997, by accident, it happens to be the time when anyone with good command of English was given the opportunity to teach, so I started in preschool..... great experience!!!!
And so my new experience begun :)
