Technology Outside the Classroom

2013-05-25 16.59.55.png

I don't know if this is a call for more technology in schools, or proof that you can practice English skills in and out of the classroom, or just plain fun. I'm voting for Option D -- all of the above.

This is me practicing oral English skills with a group of our Teach For China Fellow's students. I might be working in my office in Shantou, Guangdong Province, while they're at their school in the mountains of Shuangjiang, Yunnan Province thousands of miles away, but we're sending voice messages back and forth in English and talking about our favorite fruit, animals and future jobs when we grow up.

Thank goodness for technology (and fun).
