Let me introduce myself. My name is Ludmila Smirnova. I was born and got my education in Russia. I served as Dean of the School of Foreign Languages at Volgograd State Pedagogical University. I came to the U.S. in 2000. I decided to share a video about my digital footprints I created a couple of years ago.  I use myself and inspire teacher candidates at Mount Saint Mary College in all of my classes to use digital tools in designing and teaching their lessons. It works! Starting as "digital immigrants" at the beginning of the semester many of my class participants become "digital natives" by the end of it. I LOVE learning and this is the place to share and exchange! Good luck to all of us in this exciting journey.  Please introduce yourself when you join the community.

Welcome to the "International Writing Exchange" (IWE) Community!
 IWE invites EFL teachers around the world who are interested in forming writing communities that will provide their students with a purpose for their writing and creating a community for future projects.  Up to now the current IWE has served as a writing exchange for university and high school senior students, and one of the aims of this EVO session is to create different IWEs to serve a variety of ages, levels of groups through the teachers’ participation and interaction. Teachers who take the session will be creating a unit plan that takes into account all aspects of a writing exchange.
