A mailing list for English teachers

The CETEFL electronic discussion list is not only for teachers of English in Central and Eastern Europe (as the title might suggest) - you might benefit from joining wherever in the world you're located. Its special relevance to ICT in ELT is that it has channels for discussing web and technology-related issues (as well as other channels, of course). Give it a try - it's free :).

See you there!

European Schoolnet eLearning Awards

The idea of the eLearning awards 2004 is basically to give the opportunity for teachers and schools to enter their projects using ICT
(websites, etc.). Over 30,000 euro in cash prizes is available and winners will be invited to an awards ceremony in Prague in November.

All kinds of projects are welcome and there are special awards in
certain categories such as science and culture. There is also a category for local education authorities. You can find full details on the website:

Quote from the site:

The eLearning Awards is the premiere competition for schools involved in innovative content development and collaboration using information and communication technology (ICT).
