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.
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.

is for a better curriculumthat fits each
student’s needs. I deploy instructional technology to enhance 21st
Century student’s center learning, and empower proficiency in critical thinking

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

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.

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.
with technology involves four major components: the course content, the
instructor, the students and the technology tools (See Figure 17. 1)
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
·Distinguish and generate the
hypothesis to discover the lesson objectives (Analysis).
·Adjust curriculum to adapt different
learning styles (Synthesis).
·Monitor the outcome and conclusion
