Propose a topic for the 21st of January – Right here, below the post, as a comment!


Next #ELTchat on Wednesday 21/01 at 21:00 GMT


If you are proposing a topic, please make every effort to join the chat if your topic is chosen. You can find out information about how to follow an #ELTchat here. Please also note that the chat moderators do monitor the voting. Cases of block voting are followed up and, in such a case, the votes will be disqualified and results of poll will be announced on our blog. Since we started #ELTchat in September 2010, we have discussed a wide number of topics, but with many new members joining our conversations every week, it is very natural that we will get requests for topics which we “have done”.



For this upcoming #ELTchat please suggest topics related to the uses of educational technologies (see below why)


Google Hangout with Nicky Hockly! 

At 12 p.m. GMT we were joined by Nicky Hockly, Cambridge English Teacher Expert & the CET team in a google hangout! – to join the google hangout click here.

Here is a recording of the hangout  with Nicky Hockly in which she talks about technology as a tool for learning




So join us in the hangout for an hour from 1200 – 1300 GMT and ask Nicky as many questions as you can about the use of educational technology tools in the English Language Teaching Classroom.

The regular #ELTchat on Twitter will take place in the evening – the hangout does not replace #ELTchat on twitter
