Marisa_C 2018-01-31T19:11:03 One of the things that can hel teachers reflect a lot is the use of video #ELtchat

Romdhanifaten 2018-01-31T19:17:30 @ebefl I do agree with you! Multi-tasking, FB distraction, a lot of wasted time online, but not real reflection! #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2018-01-31T19:18:50 I think if  you haven't been trained to reflect it's hard - if you are not informed you lack the criteria  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2018-01-31T19:19:11 Reflection without knowledge is pointless #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2018-01-31T19:19:28 @Marisa_C But then isn't that part of our job as trainers? #eltchat
Romdhanifaten 2018-01-31T19:19:38 @SueAnnan @ebefl Indeed! This means trying to be objective! and give oneself a chance to weigh in on thoughts! #ELTchat
