I have recently read these two articles looking at the concept of ‘deep work’ from a teacher’s point of view. Chris Wilson’s blog post is full of helpful suggestions about an EFL teacher’s life-work balance, challenging learners and using connected devices. Sara Dennis writes about homeschooling, but her ideas can easily be extended to English lessons: “It’s not that I’m against computers, games, or movies. But they have their place. And their place isn’t as a daily part of my homeschool…Because I’m working to teach my kids to think deeply. I want them to be able to sit down, concentrate, and tackle hard subjects.” Demand High, anyone?
