Hello! Thank you so much for joining our new (really really new) community. I am very excited that you are here.
So just a bit about what the deal is here: the idea for this community has been bouncing around in my head for at least the last year and a half, if not longer. Its not the complete idea, only about 45% there. This website is what is referred to as an MVP, a minimum viable product, wherein we create the site and see if there is a legitimate need for it. If it is successful, then we will continue to make improvements and push forward. The website is free, and majority of its elements always will be :), even as we progress towards seamless integration.
The most awesome thing about this is your involvement. As a member, you can actively influence this community. See something you like? Talk about it! See something missing or have a suggestion? Talk about it! This is our community. We can do whatever is needed to allow ELT professionals to stay informed and stay connected. Community is the activity board for the site. Post questions, suggestions, recommendations etc. as often as you like to @alliebells15.
There is so much more to say 🙂 which is why there are more blog articles! Just as a tip, click on Community to view all the activity from the site. Resources has awesome travel blogs, classroom materials and other, well, resources geared towards ELT professionals. You can also upload your resume in your profile as well as a video introduction. Occasionally, we will choose the best video introductions and feature them on the community page. We also have 2 special Vlog series for you so keep an out in the sidebar and on the activity feed to find out more.
Again,we are happy to have you here with us. Please let us know how we can help you. If you haven’t already, go ahead and complete your profile. The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to attract job opportunities. I look forward to seeing you within the community.
