1. It’s possibly not so very surprising that the number one collaboration tool in this list is Prezi, given that it’s a post on the Prezi blog https://blog.prezi.com/collaboration-tools-for-hybrid-teams/ See how many you’ve heard of: I only scored two out of six (including Prezi).

2. Had we but world enough and time, we could discuss the use of the colon in this MOOC’s title: Exploring English: Food and Culture https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/exploring-english-food-and-culture Three hours a week for four weeks, and learn how to cook some classic dishes along the way!

3. Two lively sessions with Joe Dale for British Council Indonesia that deserve a wider audience next.  The first, Quick Wins With Technology in The BYOD Language Classroom https://youtu.be/OC2UykEkh6M (BYOD? Bring Your Own Device!) The second, Having a play! Simple interactive activities for remote teaching https://youtu.be/kfCN6NawKTI

4. This one will never become an English lesson – well, I don’t think it will, but you never know! It’s the UK’s Independent Commission on Aid Impact (ICAI) 2019 report on ‘How UK aid learns’  https://icai.independent.gov.uk/review/how-uk-aid-learns/ and their assessment two years later of the UK government’s response https://icai.independent.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/ICAI-follow-up-2019-20-reviews.pdf PDFs of both below.

5. This week’s phobia? Has to be sfairesphobia – here in Europe, certainly!
