The Great ICT Debate

The Great ICT Debate | ELT Digest | Scoop.it

20/1/13 - Webinar: IWBs: a fantastic teaching tool or non-interactive white elephant? with Pete Sharma and Gavin Dudeney. IATEFL online conference room.

For some, they are a powerful teaching aid, while for others they are nothing more than an expensive waste of space, hopefully soon to RIP. Join us for this fascinating debate on the merits and future of the interactive whiteboard!

 

Pete Sharma will be defending IWBs, and Gavin Dudeney will be opposing.

The myth of English as a global language | TLS | ELT Digest | Scoop.it

English spelling is notoriously inconsistent, and some have gone further, calling it “the world’s most awesome mess” or “an insult to human intelligence” (both these from linguists, one American, one Austrian). Maybe this is just because
