Buddy and I were not interviewed once, but twice in Queenie's show! But how did that happen?

Well, Queenie first interviewed us on how teachers can teach using puppets and then many of the parents that follow her parenting channel liked our interview so much, that they asked us to come to Queenie's parenting channel to talk about how parents can have quality time with their children living imagination and creativity with puppets.

As I planned to come back to Japan, I hoped to be able to return to Hanazono to puppeteer with Buddy the Frog.  But would I have the same feelings? Could I run the risk of losing that great memory that I had experienced?  It was even better!

Children Learning English Affectively: Affective Postures and Practices for Classroom Management with Young Learners

Children Learning English Affectively: Affective Postures and Practices for Classroom Management with Young Learners | My world | Scoop.it

How can we channel the lovely energy young learners bring to class? How can language be lived in a caring and empowering way? How can we promote affect but still have control of what happens in class?

Affective postures and practices make a big difference when it comes to fostering empowering and democratic language learning environments with young language learners.

I was recently in Konya, Turkey with a great team of teacher educators from SELT Academy giving an initial teacher training program to Algerian teachers who are going to teach in Turkish schools. Everyday we had lots of fun telling jokes during our a  30-minute van ride to school.  Here I share one topic we really enjoyed: alphabet riddles.

Flashcards, Flashcards. How can we live without them? What can we say about them?

I bet every single language teacher around the world has at least a set of flashcards. Some like me, certainly have a collection. I would say that teachers love flashcards because they are visual, clear, objective, and holdable. They can also be used in many different and creative ways.

I have compiled here 50 affective and effective ways in which flashcards can be used to foster engaging and significant language learning in your classes. Enjoy!

Where's Your Food Coming From? Even If You Are Not A Canadian, You Better Find Out

Do you know, or have an idea of how much of your fresh food is actually imported from very far away. You'd surprised to find out. This videographics, not only showcases very valuable and not-talked about information, but it presents it ina fresh and innovative visual style by mixing together real-world food items and 3D overlayed infographics and charts. Excellent. 10/10

Global carbon dioxide levels near worrisome milestone: CO2 will soon surpass 400 ppm!

Global carbon dioxide levels near worrisome milestone: CO2 will soon surpass 400 ppm! | My world | Scoop.it
Near the moonscape summit of the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii, an infrared analyser will soon make history. Sometime in the next month, it is expected to record a daily concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of more than 400 parts per million (p.p.m.), a value not reached at this key surveillance point for a few million years. There will be no balloons or noisemakers to celebrate the event. Researchers who monitor greenhouse gases will regard it more as a disturbing marker of humanity’s power to alter the chemistry of the atmosphere and by extension, the climate of the planet. At 400 p.p.m., nations will have a difficult time keeping global warming in check, says Corinne Le Quéré, a climate researcher at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK, who says that the impact “is getting very dangerously close to reaching the 2 °C target that governments around the world have pledged not to exceed”. It will be a while, perhaps a few years, before the global CO2 concentration averaged over an entire year, passes 400 p.p.m.. But topping that value at Mauna Loa is significant because researchers have been monitoring the gas there since 1958, longer than any other spot. “It’s a time to take stock of where we are and where we’re going,” says Ralph Keeling, a geochemist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, who oversees that centre’s CO2 monitoring efforts on Mauna Loa. That gas record, known as the Keeling curve, was started by his father, Charles Keeling.
