Luciano Pavarotti & Friends - We Are The World (LIVE) HD

There comes a time when we need a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And its time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

The Beatles - Let it be Lyrics

In Poland, Easter Monday is marked by an activity known as "Śmigus-Dyngus” where people pour water all over each other. Young children run around the streets with water guns and buckets. The water is symbolic of a cleansing and rebirth as the season transitions to spring. It’s easy to have your kids try out this custom at home with any number of water games, like Fill ‘er Up, or with some plain old-fashioned water play. Just make sure you have your towels ready!

Pouring water on one another is a Polish Easter tradition called Smingus-Dyngus. On Easter Monday, boys try to drench other people with buckets of water, squirt guns or anything they can get their hands on. Legend says girls who get soaked will marry within the year. The refreshing tradition has its origins in the baptism of Polish Prince Mieszko on Easter Monday in 966 AD

How You and Your Peers are Using Technology and What You Want to Learn More About

How You and Your Peers are Using Technology and What You Want to Learn More About
 If educators, particularly in the latter stages of schooling, don’t see the connection between the modern workplace, technology, and the skills being taught in the classroom, then how are students supposed to learn how to succeed in their professional lives?
It’s also rather unfortunate that many educators don’t see technology as a tool to practice reading and writing, given the fact the it is increasingly the platform on which reading and writing are done (as opposed to paper). Am I missing something in this interpretation?

What language teachers can learn from Sugata Mitra (a subjective list)

  • Don’t ignore the internet in your teaching.
  • Prepare students for dealing with real problems, not for taking tests.
  • Don’t expect all learning to involve teachers.
  • Accept that things will be learned, used and misused outside the classroom.
  • Recognize that there is some potential in teacherless, independent work on learners’ part.
  • Don’t shy away from big questions.
