About

284308-01-hWelcome to my blog!

My name is Burcu Akyol. I live in Istanbul. I have been in education for fourteen years. At the beginning of my career, I taught adults in a language school. I describe these two years as ‘the years that I learned the most’.

After two-years of experience with adult students, I worked in private schools and taught young learners. For the last six years I have worked at ISTEK Schools, first as Foreign Languages Coordinator and more recently as School Principal.

In 2008, the class I was teaching (ten-year-olds) gave me a very good idea and I started blogging with them. This is how I started using technology in my classes. After that I started this blog and got into Twitter. I met lots of wonderful people and the PLN concept which I think made a big impact on my professional life.

With this blog, I aim to share my reflections and insights about teaching, technology, and life.

Hope you enjoy it!
