Interview with Ozge Karaoglu

I've just had a wonderful time interviewing Ozge Karaoglu, an EFL teacher in Turkey. She talks about her experience telling stories and producing videos with her young learners.

She writes a great blog and also has a wiki with resources for teachers.

I decided to interview her so that she could share with us how she deals with storytelling with her students and how other teachers can also benefit from her ideas. Thanks Ozge for taking the time to share your experience with us!



Read about Ozge's book "Daisy and Drago" .

Her second book


The animated version of the same book with her students' voices.

Great interview! Very inspiring! I really liked the way you demonstrate the use of Wetoku. I've been contemplating using this tool for collaboration with other schools where Skype is not allowed.
