Re: [evonline2002_webheads] EFL for teenagers
- Hi Dennis,
I teach pilot cadets at the UAE aviation college. They happen to be
teenagers. though perhaps an outlier subset, but I'm finding many
challenges ranging from the need to incorporate video in almost every
activity, dealing with short attention spans and generation gap, and so on.
I would imagine you could find numerous esteemed panelists, as many in our
field have students in the teenage category, but I would be honored if you
would consider coordinating this with http://learning2gether.net in some
way, most easily by holding the panel on a Saturday, Sunday, or Monday.
Good luck with it. It is an important topic.
