About the Website

I maintained this teaching website as a K-12 teacher in private schools in Egypt. I worked as a teacher from 2010-2013. Most of my work was with grade 11 students (for three years) but I also taught grades 3, 4, 6 and 9. I really enjoyed my work with students in those schools. I was mainly an IT teacher which built on my background in computer science as well as my Master in international and comparative education. The students learnt how to develop and design websites using HTML and CSS as well as a variety of Web 2.0 tools (such as WordPress, Google Apps, Animoto, Popplet, Story bird, Weebly, wix, Prezi, Wikis and more), This website contains educational posts on a variety of digital media tools that we have utilized. It also showcases a variety of the students’ work.

For my work as an instructor for educators please refer to this website. For my work as a guidance counsellor please refer to this website.

Thank you.

Mrs. Magy

Today I met my school teacher. She taught me how to create a website when I was 13! I had enjoyed it thoroughly and decided to enter the track of  computer science. Years later, ironically, I discovered how passionate I am about teaching and am now helping students create thier own websites..

Mrs. Magda, I’m indebted to you.

Mary.
