Meet Gordana – eduHeroe from Croatia

My name is Gordana Novak. I come from Križevci. It is a small town 60 km south-east of Zagreb, our capital. I have been teaching English as a second language in a primary school for more than 15 years.

I am constantly in search of engaging subject matter for my students. I must admit it has not always been easy because every year I see new generations arriving into my classroom that are so different.

In 2014 I came up with the idea to introduce Skype into my classroom. I thought that this tool could assist me in exciting my students about learning and making my teaching approach engaging to their generation. And it has really changed my lessons. The experience and knowledge that we gained was immensely valuable. My students simply love these lessons because they can speak English and have fun at the same time.

But now, I would also like to work on the projects with my students. Therefore, I am taking a part in #DiY4Earth. It is our first time to be involved in the project like this.
