Monday, 18th October

1. Learnit has a number of good podcasts

Try Byju Raveendran on his eponymous EdTech company, Byju’s

or Laura McInerney on the Teacher Tapp app she co-founded

What, if anything, should we make of the fact that the Indian cricket team are sponsored by an EdTech company, Byju’s, whereas the England team are sponsored by a ‘used car marketplace’, Cinch, I wonder?

2. The next lecture in the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics Language Policy and Practices in the Global North and South series is To speak or not to speak: Issues of language revitalization in Mexico by José Antonio Flores Farfán from Mexico’s National Centre for Social Anthropology Studies & Research (CIESAS) at 15:00 UK time on Wednesday, 20th October.

More info and abstract here (also below) and registration here


3. Language Cert are offering an online event for teachers (not to be confused with a webinar, please), Empowering teachers in the brave new digital world of ELT, with Nicky Hockly and John Hughes at 14:30 UK time this Wednesday, 20th October.

More info here and registration here

4. And, finally, in five daily episodes, starting today (but all available on BBC Sounds already), Bernardine Evaristo’s new book, Manifesto (read by Bernie herself)

Piece about the book in The Guardian here which ends with a great quote!
