“Flatting World”

I am reading “The World is Flat” by Thomas L Friedman and have been amazed to know what technological world we are living, how fast and small the world is.  He wrote -Columbus reported to his king and queen that the world was round, and he went down in history as the man who first made this discovery.  I returned how and shared my discovery only with my wife, and only in a whisper.  Honey, I think the world is flat.

Yes, we all can see the world on our computers’ flat screen.  The world is connected in various ways and we see all things happening in real time.

Let’s take advantage of this flatting world.  What and How?

I have been doing live conferences via internet (web camera) for a while; this book gives me another perspective how, what I can take my students to this Flatting World. 

I recommend to anybody to read this book.  This book makes me think the meaningful ways of learning languages, the importance of right brain development and teaching does not occur only in the classroom.

One of the examples is “Whaling” unit.  See Resource Download page of this site.

Let’s discuss how we can use all evidence and information you find in the book to our daily lessons. 

You can buy the book as well as CD.  I have both so that I can improve my English proficiency.
