Thank you for opening Pandora's Box, the questions that you present are the same ones that I have been asking myself for sometime now. I teach fashion design in high school and when assigning projects especially technologically based ones I am always asking the 'What If' question.
Students today approach learning differently since Web 2.0 so Pandora's Box should be opened so that we can let out the last item left (HOPE). Some of us (Digital Immigrants) need loads of HOPE to fully understand how the learning Digital Natives take place.
Hope fully someone has answers to your questions so that I can also learn.
Hi all. I'm American, from NJ, but live in France. I created a language school here in 1976, and since it is still running pretty well, I am still here, living in a little fishing village near Marseille. The school is north of home in a town called Istres.
In 1992 I began the Real English® project. This has become my true passion as I approach retirement.
