English Teaching and Technical Expertise

Recently we asked via a Google Form, the English Companion Ning and Twitter for ideas on what level of technical expertise an English teacher should have. This was prompted by a belief that, at least here in Ireland, teachers are coming into the career with an underwhelming level of technical ability, despite being from the 'Facebook generation'.

Many of the responses are on this document. If you'd like to add your own contribution, here's the form, or just add a comment at the bottom of this post.

We're on holidays now until April 23rd. Occasional posts until then.
