Week 10: Graduation

By conincidence(?), the end of this course is on the same day as the school ending in Romania. I feel like a student. I feel great, as during the last 10 weeks I could learn so many new things. I will apply in my future teaching, and my students will benefit from this.

It was a great experience learning and having you here. I shared all my knowledge, all my experience, all my practice, and knowing that somebody read all these meant a lot for me. Now, I want to share something else with you all: in my country, when school ends, the best students are rewarded. They get a diploma, some books, but most importantly, they have flowers on their heads. And they are so happy... you can read it in their eyes, on their face.

Now, I think all of us deserve flowers. I offer them to you. And once again, I promise we'll keep in touch. That's why I didn't name this post "My last post" or "The final post". No way. My blog is alive and it will remain. I will be trained in the elearning classes and elearning space. I will share everything with you.

My advice? Keep up the great work and don't give up: if you have started using technology in your classes, do so in the future. Students will love this, you'll see.

Do you have problems? Do you want to try something and things don't work? Don't hesitate to ask me! I will help you as much as I can. That's another promise.

Now, I wish you all the best


  1. Dear Nadina!

    Your words are so optimistic and full of hope and expectation of something better!
    And it seems better life is so close, just in one click on the keyboard!

    Thank you, dear!
    All the best,

  2. Hello Nadinne!

    We too are graduating! You`re right we deserve flowers! Thank you so much!

    I think just like you: I couln`t call week ten my last post! I guess this has been quite a long track but I`m not yet ready to end it! I`ll probably never end it, since I intend to continue writing my blog and just like you sharing my thoughts and dreams, my expectations and my difficulties and of course my successes!

    Cooperation is one of the keys to success!

    You can count on me to be here and to continue our journey towards making our students better learners and better persons as well!

    All the best!



  3. Hello Nadinne,

    We have the same tradition here in Turkey.Thank you very much for the flowers and I hope you keep this beautiful Blog online.



  4. Dear Bulent,

    my answer is positive: Yes, I will keep this blog alive. It's a promise and I keep myu word.


  5. Dear Nadina

    So glad to hear you'll keep the lines open. Thanks for sharing and caring enough about our technology development to set aside time to share your skills. It was great getting to know you. You always had such interesting comments and fresh ideas. I'll be a definite visitor to your blog.
    Wishing you all the best

  6. Dear Nadina,

    Thank you for the flowers and glad to know you'll keep your blog alive. I'll be a regular visiter and I'll keep mine as well so we can keep in touch. You've been a great help during the course and shared your ideas and expertise so allow me to express my gratitude.

    Wish you all the best


  7. Dear Nadina,

    You are one of the people who are eager and curious to discover the world. But you also like to reflect and work on your discoveries. Thank you very much for taking interest in my attempts to master technology use in the classroom. I could always count on you and your advice.

    All the best,

  8. Hello, Nadina,

    Thanks for these flowers. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we can continue with the effort during our next project. I believe we will work very hard in benefit of our students who represent the center of our teaching job.



  9. Dear Nadina,
    Nice comments once again. You've got a high sense of readiness for work and collaboration. It's something I have known of you since the begining of the course.
    You've talked about keeping in touch and I suggest we make a kind of listserv or create a platform for all the participants in the course so that we can always get connected. We can use yahogroup or anything else you'd like, but keep tuned.
    I can take charge of this.
    What do you think?

  10. Dear Hamid,

    that's a great and good idea. I will send you an email with my contact details. I don't think it's a good idea to post them here, as this is a public space.

    Great idea, indeed! Thank you!
