Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T10:41:25 Your topic for lunchtime is What makes the best kind of homework for language learners? #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T10:58:22 Hello everyone! #ELTChat
iatefl_ltsig 2014-09-17T10:58:31 We’re looking for people to give us some audio comments for a LTSIG / GI SIG podcast email shaun@ltsig.org.uk #IATEFL #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:00:28 Hi Guys it’s #eltchat time
Kosjenka 2014-09-17T11:02:04 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: #ELTchat starting soon. Join us!
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:02:59 @Philip_Saxon hi! What's today's subject? #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:03:46 Hi everyone!!! Happy birthday to all #ELTchat mods and folks for our 4th birthday?
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:03:51 I think the topic is about homework, is that right Shaun? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:04:16 @MarjorieRosenbe Yep - What makes the best kind of homework for language learners?  #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:04:38 RT @Shaunwilden: @MarjorieRosenbe Yep - What makes the best kind of homework for language learners?  #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:04:42 Hi everyone #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:05:10 @MarjorieRosenbe ahh, to give or not to give hw...#eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:05:18 @StudyBundles @MarjorieRosenbe @Shaunwilden @Philip_Saxon Welcome all #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:05:28 I think homework needs to be relevant. There needs to be a reason to do it. #eltchat
TESOLacademic 2014-09-17T11:05:57 RT @iatefl_ltsig: We’re looking for people to give us some audio comments for a LTSIG / GI SIG podcast email shaun@ltsig.org.uk #IATEFL #EL…
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:06:04 I also think personalised HW is ideal - write about something you know about or yourself. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:06:15 Homework or Busywork? That's what some Ss call it. Opinions? #ELTchat what kind of HW do u think Ss call busywork?
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:06:19 @fabenglishteach I'd welcome confirmation but I believe it's homework. #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:06:38 Just thinking we might need to define HW. Also includes internet searches, watching a video, etc. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:06:58 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: Just thinking we might need to define HW. Also includes internet searches, watching a video, etc. #eltchat > good idea
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:06:59 I like to give research for hw, try to invoke some curiosity #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:07:21 @Marisa_C @StudyBundles @MarjorieRosenbe @Shaunwilden Likewise, hello all! Can Marisa confirm the topic for today? #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:07:29 @fabenglishteach Agree - good idea. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:07:33 Perhaps HW not so hard to define; the PURPOSES of HW might need some clarifying tho #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:07:42 I never hear Ss call it busy work. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:08:00 @Philip_Saxon @Marisa_C @StudyBundles @MarjorieRosenbe Why. don’t you trust me? :-) #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:08:06 I teach in secondary school, it's obligatorybto set regular HW #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:08:08 @MarjorieRosenbe You probably don't give tha kind of HW then anyway #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:08:27 @Marisa_C My uni Ss have self-study grammar exercises to practice and writing so I can correct it for improvement. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:09:01 So, some HW is for consolidation purposes - right? #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:09:11 @fabenglishteach also for us at university. #eltchat I still try to make it relevant.
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:09:28 @Marisa_C Hope not. #eltchat
BobK99 2014-09-17T11:10:21 @Marisa_C Catching up with #ELTchat. Glad to be back;-)
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:10:44 @BobK99 good to have you back with us welcome #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:10:47 @fabenglishteach More purposes - reflection, solidification of material - doing it at your own pace #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:11:03 Shouldn’t learners say what is the best kind of homework for them? :-) #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:11:33 So homework should be relevant, personalised and based on something that piques learners' interest... #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:11:39 Forgot to greet everyone - was just excited to be here today. #eltchat Plugged the chat in plenary in Frankfurt.
Priscilamateini 2014-09-17T11:11:55 Hello everyone. For some students, it called "boringwork" but I try to convinced them that will help them #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:12:03 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: Forgot to greet everyone - was just excited to be here today. #eltchat Plugged the chat in plenary in Frankfurt. Thx!!
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:12:19 @Shaunwilden I suspect 20 Ss would elicit 20 different answers. #eltchat
maureenmcgarvey 2014-09-17T11:12:57 RT @HairyChef: 5 things to remember when....listening to colleagues complain. http://t.co/p8CJJ7Ki1P #auselt #eltchat #iatefl
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:13:18 Consoilidation - solidification?? #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:13:28 @Marisa_C yes definitely...and some can be instructional/presentational #flippedlearning #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:13:33 I also try to follow up on classwork in written assignments. #eltchat Will give example in next tweet.
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:13:35 @MarjorieRosenbe So does that mean 20 different homework(s) are a bad idea? #eltchat #ambackandbeingmischievous
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:13:55 @Marisa_C Certainly the traditional view! Can also use it to apply knowledge, though, surely? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:14:19 RT @fabenglishteach: Consoilidation - solidification?? #eltchat > :-D an ELT neologism here
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:14:26 We do the game 'When was the 1st time you ...' and then they write about an important 1st in their lives. Some bring me to tears.#eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:14:41 Hard to let a class of young teens choose their own hw, but giving a choice is important #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:15:10 RT @fabenglishteach: Hard to let a class of young teens choose their own hw, but giving a choice is important #eltchat
dimodeca 2014-09-17T11:15:21 #ELTchat Hi! interesting discussion going on..,
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:15:35 Looks like giving choice, self access HW work for many - is this also tru of YL's? Are they able to make choices? #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:15:44 @MarjorieRosenbe Sounds like a nice, easily differentiated free writing task #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:15:44 Looking at McCarthy's 4MAT system - HW tells me what they still need to learn. #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:15:49 @Shaunwilden @MarjorieRosenbe depends on how you'll evaluate them, or whether you want to see your own friends/life this week! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:16:01 @fabenglishteach I agree choice is important and allowing people to do different things if it suits #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:16:17 @MarjorieRosenbe Agreed! Also think it's important to emphasize S's own views matter more than "correct" answers to questions. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:16:30 @Shaunwilden Depends on what we mean by 'different' and how I have to grade them. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:16:52 @MarjorieRosenbe Does this imply homework has to be graded?  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:17:13 @Shaunwilden Could give option of means of delivery - written, recorded, videoed - that would work. #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:17:14 For writing practice I often do 100 word challenge, then they blog it & get peer evaluation  with @TheHeadsOffice #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:17:38 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: @Shaunwilden Could give option of means of delivery - written, recorded, videoed - that would work. #eltchat Nice idea
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:17:45 Following Russell Stannard's example am now starting to set speaking homework assignments (using smartphones). #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:17:50 @fabenglishteach @TheHeadsOffice Love it. #eltchat
Priscilamateini 2014-09-17T11:17:53 For my teens and juniors group if they don't do it I have to call their parents and they are forced to do, I select with them #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:18:36 @Philip_Saxon and audioboo good for speaking hW #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:18:38 The personalised writing is also more interesting to read. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:19:10 Sorry stepping out of chat for a few minutes #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:19:28 RT @fabenglishteach: @Philip_Saxon and audioboo good for speaking hW #eltchat as are sound cloud, vocaroo, fotobabble
dimodeca 2014-09-17T11:19:34 @fabenglishteach @TheHeadsOffice great idea. I'd love to do sth like that this year #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:19:37 @MarjorieRosenbe and helps you get to know them better, esp at start of school year #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:19:51 @Shaunwilden @fabenglishteach Love them all! #ELTchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:20:29 Read some reports recently about how HW didn't improve school results at all, anyone eles seen it? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:20:54 @fabenglishteach Do you have a link? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:21:19 @StudyBundles @fabenglishteach @Philip_Saxon I left it out cost of the cost factor but yes it is a good tool  #eltchat
BobK99 2014-09-17T11:22:53 RT @Shaunwilden @fabenglishteach  Do you have a link? #eltchat > Not I, but I remember it from the headlines maybe 2 wks back. Google?
Priscilamateini 2014-09-17T11:23:19 What are important to them, what challenge as well. less important in their homework, I try to use in an open lesson, as a review #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:23:26 RT @Priscilamateini: What are important to them, what challenge as well. less important in their homework, I try to use in an open lesson, …
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:23:51 Maybe am thinking of young adults here, but asking students to reflect in writing on what they've been taught can work very well. #ELTchat
dimodeca 2014-09-17T11:23:52 @MarjorieRosenbe indeed. more motivating. when st do HW just bc they're supposed to, in a rush, it doesn't serve the purpose #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:24:41 Then again, am thinking of content-based instruction here. #ELTchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:25:13 I also have to bear in mind HW set in other school subjects means English HW might be rushed/copied, however interesting it is #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:25:16 @Philip_Saxon or just reflect, does it have to be in writing?  #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:25:41 RT @fabenglishteach: I also have to bear in mind HW set in other  subjects means English HW might be rushed/copied, #eltchat good point!
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:25:42 @Philip_Saxon a learning journal would be great! #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:25:49 @Philip_Saxon Agreed, it's good practice to encourage them to reflect on their learning, helps foster effective learner autonomy #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:26:31 @Shaunwilden @Philip_Saxon writing helps set your ideas, and we tend to remember better what we've written - by hand #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:26:37 @Shaunwilden Maybe not. Could audio be an alternative? Don't mind as long as learning is evident. #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:27:19 @Philip_Saxon Just wondering if audio journals etc might make it easier for those that don’t like writing  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:27:26 @Shaunwilden @Philip_Saxon Depends on reason HW. I put links to Vicki Holletts vidoes on moodle which they watch & we discuss. #eltchat
BobK99 2014-09-17T11:27:51 @Shaunwilden @Philip_Saxon #eltchat Well, s'thing tangible at least (MP3?). Otherwise they cd just say 'Yeah I done that sir'!
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:27:58 Sharing learning journals with classmates? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:28:06 @MarjorieRosenbe @Philip_Saxon  So the homework is ‘simply’ watch for next lesson?  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:28:07 also gave CAE Ss link to Sugata Mitra's TED talk and we debated it in class. Great success. #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:28:08 @Shaunwilden Great chance to offer students a choice! They can post whichever they prefer on class blog/Edmodo/whatever. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:28:09 Am back - sorry #ELTchat office probs
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:28:36 RT @Marisa_C: Am back - sorry #ELTchat office probs > I read that and thought what we have an office now?
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:28:51 @MarjorieRosenbe so some HW can be given to research and prepare for class - here is another purpose #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:29:04 My Ss also have self-reflection sheets on their learning styles & what they liked in class & why for research project. #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:29:10 Think writing helps fix learning, but not too much, I have lots of dyslexic students so two lines /15 words max #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:29:28 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: My Ss also have self-reflection sheets on their learning styles & what they liked in class & why for research project.…
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:29:51 @Marisa_C We needed to make up hours and this was perfect. Level was right & great CAE prep. #eltchat And Ss found it relevant.
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:30:16 I give SEN/ dyslexic learners topic of next lesson so they have time to collect thoughts & vocab #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:30:27 @Marisa_C Can I visit the office in March? #eltchat :-)
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:31:07 @fabenglishteach Great idea - agree it helps to give them time to think & prepare. #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:31:35 @Shaunwilden @Philip_Saxon or get them to tweet, short & sweet! #eltchat
edchatirl 2014-09-17T11:31:45 @Marisa_C First time sitting in on #eltchat. I'm from Ireland. CELTA trained, studying MA in Learning & Teaching. Interesting topic.
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:31:46 @Shaunwilden @MarjorieRosenbe Many ways to flip classroom. I'd scaffold future discussion with questions as prompts. #ELTchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:32:37 Research questions (WebQuests) can work very well! Especially if class divided into groups, each with own question. #ELTchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:32:37 #ELTchat has anyone tried a flipped approach? How have you approached it? Have you had success?
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:32:39 Sharing a presentation on HW I did some time ago- ppt  on slideshare http://t.co/lqnvNKcHu3 #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:32:56 @Shaunwilden @Philip_Saxon Uni Ss need to learn to write so this is practice for future as well. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:33:07 @edchatirl welcome an join us :-) #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:33:19 @BobK99 @Shaunwilden Quiz to start next class might keep Ss on toes. #ELTchat

Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:34:06 @StudyBundles I know of people who have but am not convinced myself  #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:34:10 @BobK99 @Shaunwilden Agree learning must be made visible. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:34:42 @Marisa_C @MarjorieRosenbe What, we don’t have an office after all!  i thought that was your  #eltchat bday present to the mods ;-)
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:34:46 @Philip_Saxon @BobK99 @Shaunwilden  so thinking of hw as evidence of learning? It's not always tho - #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:34:57 @Marisa_C @Shaunwilden :-) #eltchat  Thought you needed space for the cake and the 4 candles!
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:35:24 @Marisa_C @BobK99 @Shaunwilden Please do elaborate, chance for me to learn. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:35:26 @Marisa_C This is great - can I use some ideas for a talk - will email you. #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:35:58 @Marisa_C @Philip_Saxon @BobK99 @Shaunwilden would say more evidence of progress. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:36:13 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: @Marisa_C This is great - can I use some ideas for a talk - will email you. #eltchat  for sure ! let me know #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:36:34 @Shaunwilden I think it can be extremely effective in the right context, and done in the right way -doesn't suit all t & l contexts #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:37:18 Helping Ss progress also means us spending time on corrections. the downside for the T but important. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:37:38 @dimodeca @StudyBundles @dimodeca @StudyBundles Well i think the idea of flipping = homework is not necessarily correct  #eltchat
edchatirl 2014-09-17T11:37:42 @MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C @Philip_Saxon @BobK99 @Shaunwilden reflection is a nice way to link into the next lesson too! #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:37:58 @dimodeca @Shaunwilden @MarjorieRosenbe Good luck! Key though is to ensure tight integration between online and classroom work. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:38:03 @Philip_Saxon  I meant that Ss can complete sth mechanical but that is not proof of learning or ability to use the TL #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:38:53 @edchatirl @MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C @BobK99 @Shaunwilden Lessons might end in a plenary…leading into such a writing task. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:38:58 @Marisa_C @Philip_Saxon Agree- but putting what they learned into practice is totally different. #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:39:41 @Marisa_C Totally agree! Much prefer AUTHENTIC homework. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:39:52 I only look at the non-mechanical, creative output. The rest they correct themselves. #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:40:05 When to set it? Not always good time for all Ss @TeacherToolkit  talked about takeaway HW, Ss choose from diff tasks to do in week #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:40:26 for exam prep I give them the categories that are graded & points for each so they know what they need to do. #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:40:28 @Philip_Saxon Or inauthentic but motivating/ creative and FUN to do #eltchat that works for me too :-)
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:40:55 @dimodeca @Shaunwilden yep, small steps! #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:40:55 @Marisa_C Fun also gets you there! Love to see examples another time. #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:41:10 @Philip_Saxon In a BE context tho may be hard to say do this fun thing to a group fo dour looking CEO's :-D #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:41:17 @MarjorieRosenbe or self/peer corrected? #eltchat
Priscilamateini 2014-09-17T11:41:31 Adults groups they want to do their homeworks but they do not have time and patience for them. most of them have excuses about it #eltchat

danapokle 2014-09-17T11:42:50 @Marisa_C @Philip_Saxon  @MarjorieRosenbe hello #eltchat. Started giving  oral HW to corporate learners with smartphones and they like it
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:43:25 @Priscilamateini I also reward my adults with reward stickers. Works well. And the HW doesn't take long. #eltchat
fabenglishteach 2014-09-17T11:43:31 Gotta dash! Lovely chatting to you all, have a good week! #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:43:43 @danapokle  that sounds like a great idea - put smartphones to good use for HW #eltchat

StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:43:52 @Shaunwilden @dimodeca no I haven't seen them.  Thanks for the link! #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:44:00 @danapokle @Marisa_C @MarjorieRosenbe Smartphones have hit critical mass lately in Hungary. Time to introduce new methods. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:44:00 @Marisa_C @Philip_Saxon They also got stickers from me and loved them! #eltchat
Marisa_C 2014-09-17T11:44:39 Also nice to use http://t.co/yShS3wPRjB for ss w/o smartphones - no installation neede just email recording #eltchat

Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:44:48 @StudyBundles @dimodeca He has been flipping elt for a couple of years spoke about it at IATEFL a couple of years ago  #eltchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:44:49 @edchatirl @Shaunwilden @dimodeca true, think there's often (not always!) a way round lack of connection though #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:45:29 @Philip_Saxon @Marisa_C Always - they keep them, show them around. A huge hit. Used them with top govt. officials as well. #eltchat
edchatirl 2014-09-17T11:45:45 @StudyBundles @Shaunwilden @dimodeca what would you suggest? #eltchat
Priscilamateini 2014-09-17T11:46:02 I try to explain for them the importance of doing it and if they don't they can't see their sense of achievement, and my feedback #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:46:06 @MarjorieRosenbe @Marisa_C Are Edmodo badges also an option? Wondering how that works. #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 2014-09-17T11:47:29 Just on FB - could make fun HW assigment - how 'not' to write to prof and an email that gets a response. #eltchat http://t.co/J070HRBwcF
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:47:36 RT @edchatirl: @StudyBundles @Shaunwilden @dimodeca what would you suggest? #eltchat Lost the thread, suggest for what?
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:47:45 @Marisa_C @MarjorieRosenbe Would love to know more. Can you recommend blog post or similar for FAQs? #ELTchat
StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:47:45 @edchatirl @Shaunwilden @dimodeca In the past I've put vids on s/d cards for ss who cld watch on smartphones #eltchat
edchatirl 2014-09-17T11:47:47 @Marisa_C @Priscilamateini That's an interesting question, I hope someone has a creative answer for it! #eltchat
Philip_Saxon 2014-09-17T11:48:15 @Marisa_C @MarjorieRosenbe Edmodo FAQs, I mean. #ELTchat
edchatirl 2014-09-17T11:48:57 @StudyBundles @Shaunwilden @dimodeca oh that's very creative, did it work well? #eltchat
dimodeca 2014-09-17T11:50:37 #eltchat must leave now, I'm afraid. great chat!

StudyBundles 2014-09-17T11:52:36 @edchatirl @Shaunwilden @dimodeca Yes it did, but it was quite a bit of effort/planning/work to set it up :) #eltchat
edchatirl 2014-09-17T11:53:17 @StudyBundles @Shaunwilden @dimodeca I can imagine!! Sounds like their lucky to have a dedicated teacher! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 2014-09-17T11:53:26 @StudyBundles @edchatirl @dimodeca I guess another option is put stuff on USBs #eltchat
