A channel tunnel

tunnelDifferent perspectives are always interesting. This Guardian article puts forward the idea that Modern Language teachers in Britain are leading the way in their use of tecnology in education. I have always argued that in terms of languages the new technologies, if used wisely, provide essential tools for communication between teachers, students and students and teachers and this is the key attraction highlighted in the text. Modern language teachers in Britain have a whole range of projects and also, more importantly, a strong social teaching network through which ideas can be exchanged. Be patient and scroll down the page to the comments at the end: some incisive comments here and again, for me at least, fascinating to see what language teachers are working on in different contexts.

Try this hashtag on Twitter #mfltwitterati to see some of the things they are up to. The following blog is also of interest.
