Back online on Tuesday – it’s Easter weekend here in the UK.
1. First of two from Language Magazine: A Superpower Hidden in Plain Sight, a piece by Adeola Whitney about viewing linguistic diversity as an asset rather than as a problem https://www.languagemagazine.com/2022/04/05/a-superpower-hidden-in-plain-sight/
2. And the second, UNESCO Sees Role of EdTech in Multilingual Learning, a piece about “the potential of technology to advance multilingual education and support the development of quality teaching and learning for all” https://www.languagemagazine.com/2022/03/23/unesco-sees-role-of-edtech-in-multilingual-learning/
3. And while we’re talking about UNESCO, here’s a piece (with an introductory video) about Darla Deardorff’s Story Circles methodology for developing intercultural competencies https://en.unesco.org/themes/intercultural-dialogue/competencies
You can find Darla’s Manual for developing intercultural competencies here https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000370336 and in PDF form below.

4. Another piece from The Conversation (I must be their ideal reader), Can we ever fully separate our work and home lives? https://theconversation.com/can-we-ever-fully-separate-our-work-and-home-lives-philosophy-suggests-we-should-stop-trying-177582 My wife and family will testify that this something that I’ve never managed to do.
5. And, finally, ‘The Peanut Vendor’ https://youtu.be/0akHBBpEK2o
