You can't teach people everything they need to know. The best you can do is position them where they can find what they need to know when they need to know it. (Seymour Papert)

Using social networks to improve your English is one of the many options open to you in this day and age. There are also many advantages to online and computer-based learning; but there are disadvantages as well. Is there anything you can add to these lists of advantages and disadvantages of eLearning

In relation to our second topic, Education, I remember having particularly enjoyed the first two chapters of Hard Times, by Charles Dickens (the second one significantly entitled “Murdering the Innocents”). Mr. Thomas Gradgrind, a man of facts, and the little Sissy Jupe; what a bitter contrast!
I even used it once in class to illustrate an explanation about the positivist worldview which arose in the nineteenth century.
Here’s a link (to the whole novel, as a matter of fact): https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/d/dickens/charles/d54ht/chapter1.html

Thank you so much for sharing your findings with us, especially when they are so positive and appreciative of the literature you have been reading.
