You can find all the postings I mention below on this page:

I really enjoyed A passion for warcraft by Gavin Dudeney and Marisa Constantinides' with or without you - both related to teaching with or without technology, the themes of the SEETA discussion.

Gavin, by the way, is looking for help on a presentation he's doing on attitudes to using technology so if you're in the camp of the non-believers, do please head on over to his site /here and explain why.

Tamas Lorincz shared his less encouraged but more determined thoughts on teaching against the odds and Vicki Hollett has been writing about the theory of the mind - the thoughts of others complete with a very fascinating video on how we know what someone else is thinking.

Which brings me on over to Anne Hodgson's gorgeous v-blog on signs and communication which made me write a whole bunch of nonsense in the comments there.

Found the TEFL Tradesman's post on Life in the 3rd division an awful bump back to reality rather going up against the grain of my own posting of how important we TEFL teachers all are to globablization.

Ah, perhaps one day... I hear word from Marxist ELF that an alternative conference is up for discussion next year - hitting some of the harder questions in our industry. More on that later but she's also looking for some help.

Alex has already been gearing up for those issues with posts like How can we increase TEFL teachers pay? And Sara Hannam touched on some hard hitting points in her Critical Mass blog on improving conditions and joining unions.

Thank goodness for Janet Bianchini's wonderful list of the things she's done due to her life in TEFL which cheered me up no end, along with Barbara Sakamoto's lovely piece on her cross-cultural experience in The English Auntie.
