Sharing my joy with you: My chapter in an International book

Dear colleagues,
Today, while I was working on completing my tasks for week 9, I received an email telling me that the book "CALL in Limited Technology Context" is being printed!!I have a chapter in this book which entitled "Bleeding edge challenges in Sudan: Limits on using CALL in EFL classrooms at the tertiary level".Yeees!
This is the link for the screencast sent to me.Or you can click here to see the title of the book of the sidebar.
Unfortunately, I can not access in Sudan. It's a problem with Sudan IPA address. Anyway, I hope  I will be reading a copy soon. It’s a book by authors from different parts of the world. The main focus of each chapter is helping teachers figure out what they can do despite all the barriers and problems they encounter when using technology in classrooms.It a book full of practical ideas and inspiring experiences. It a book which  is recommended for all teachers  who live in limited technology context and who are using/will use technology in their EFL classrooms.


  1. Dear Hala,

    your news is great! Congratulations once again. I have never heard about CALICO, but I explored the site you shared and I saw they have a section for European teachers too. I am sure I will join it as it is great. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Congrats Hala!
    You are an amazing teacher and innovator!
    Using Technology in a limited internet context is a challenge! but we, teachers, always find ways to cope up with this. You are a prove of that!
    So proud of having shared this learning experience with you!
    Big hugs from sunny Venezuela!

  3. Dear Hala,

    This is quite an achievement - congratulations! Given everything you do, I have to say that it's not exactly a surprise that you've accomplished this as well.

    Next time, your own book rather than just a chapter?


  4. Thank you, Deborah, for the words of encouragement.

    Thank you again for all what you gave us during this course. You made us feel more confident, competent and qualified to start our journey.

    Wishing you all the best.
