"Le top 250 de Imdb est l’une des listes les plus célèbres du net. [...] elle offre un classement des meilleurs films de l’histoire.

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.
