BRITISH COUNCIL SEARCHENGLISH NEWS
Welcome to the April edition of the British Council's SearchEnglish
newsletter. In this edition we have news on:
2. TOP STORIES
3. DISCUSSION GROUPS FOR YOUR ELT EVENT
1. FIRST OF ALL, APOLOGIES to all our regular users for the break in our
service. SearchEnglish has been down for the last week due to an underground
fire in the Manchester post office exchange which has effected thousands of
Internet users all over the UK. I'm glad to say that the damage has been
fixed and SearchEnglish is once again live.
2. TOP STORIES
We have been busy over the last couple of days linking to some of the best
and most interesting stories coming through the world's education and
technology news. These include:
- : RSS: A QUICK START GUIDE FOR EDUCATORS: This is an excellent article and
beginners guide to RSS and how educators can use it with their students.
Certainly a highly recommended and well written piece for those who want to
keep in touch with how the very latest technology can benefit us and our
- : THIRD PAN-CANADIAN E-LEARNING WORKSHOP: This is a video report on the
CANARIE e-learning forum. Very interesting if you are interested in reusable
learning objects and how they may impact on the future of e learning. The
page also contains links to a number of other interesting multimedia
developments that are going on in Canada.
- : PROVIDING ACCESS TO STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES IN ONLINE DISTANCE
EDUCATION: This article outlines the legal duties and responsibilities of
distance education providers to make their services accessible to people
And lastly - : INNOVATIONS IN ONLINE LEARNING: MOVING BEYOND NO SIGNIFICANT
DIFFERENCE: This article looks at how computer based instruction is
developing and attempting to have a significant impact on improving
standards of education.
These are just some of the articles that have appeared on the site within
the last two days. We also welcome your help in directing us towards useful
articles so if you see something you think others should see then drop us a
