Dear ELT Professionals,
Our highlights from this week below. Lots of “buzz”.
My reading tip this week is again related to ChatGPT, the buzz topic that doesn’t stop. It’s a Nation article that rightly argues that we should expect students to use ChatGPT or “cheat” because that is what our educational system for the most part, has imparted as the norm - use the tools you have to solve problems. Agree?
