A meeting of minds

Yesterday evening, I had an unusual and interesting experience. A group of 7 educators met for dinner, and some of them were meeting some of the others for the very first time. We were from different education sectors: Primary, Secondary and Tertiary. What brought us together was a shared passion for e-learning in English language teaching. We didn’t need more than 10 seconds to warm up to the occasion, and we gleefully exchanged ideas, experiences, and aspirations in applying e-learning in teaching English. Most of the time we were talking about matters that were either pedagogical, professional, or technological. Yet, the atmosphere was jovial and convivial. The evening once again confirmed my previous characterisation of people who are e-learning fanatics: They are cheerful, fun-loving, creative, conscientious, and generous in sharing.
