My Interest

My philosophy of teaching evolved from many years of teaching experience. As I reflect on my beliefs regarding teaching and learning, I find that my mission as an Arabic, ESL, and Instructional Technology is threefold:
·          to promote positive learning;
·          to spark learner enthusiasm for learning;
·           and to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning.
To accomplish this, I enjoy applying a wide variety of strategies based on essential educational principles encompassing cognitive functioning, learning theory, diversity issues, instructional planning and assessment.
My interest is in learning new methods to incorporating a new technology into my teaching and curriculum. In my designed Curriculum; I implemented a multicultural themes using research-based practices in second language acquisition designed to meet the needs of both native and non-native Arabic speakers.
My vision is for a better curriculum that fits each student’s needs. I deploy instructional technology to enhance 21st Century student’s center learning, and empower proficiency in critical thinking for a life-long learning.
I believe that teachers and students must be part of the constantly changing technological landscape. Because technology permeates our lives, writing teachers have a particular need to help students become fluent in the literate practices of a technological age. Writing and reading practices are evolving, and students need to have access to technology not only in their major coursework but also in their writing courses as well. I use Flipping Classrooms method; which Students are actually doing the “homework” (practice, application, and analysis of concepts) in class, often in collaboration with peers, and they can get help from me and from peers as their questions arise.  
I use tools and techniques to enhance student learning through technology. My students learn through screencasting, webquests, skype using videoconferencing to connect them with guest speakers around the world, and online collaboration tools (OCTs), and much more.
Teaching with technology involves four major components: the course content, the instructor, the students and the technology tools (See Figure 17. 1)   
We need to incorporate each component in order to make technology integration as successful as possible. For more information about the component; please visit   Michigan University
My mission is applied through the Bloom’s Taxonomy theory.  My students will be:
·          Literate in using computers (Knowledge).
·           Correspond collaboratively and format views efficiently (Comprehension).
·           Relate information to problem-solving (Application).
·           Distinguish and generate the hypothesis to discover the lesson objectives (Analysis).
·           Adjust curriculum to adapt different learning styles (Synthesis). 
·           Monitor the outcome and conclusion (Evaluation). (Bloom, 2000)
