I would suggest that if you have an author you are reading as a class, or one many of your students enjoy reading, send a request to Skype with that artist or perhaps create a live chat where you can ask a question and the author can respond in writing. I've seen this done a few times and it gets extra excited about reading. It's worth a shot. Good luck and keep us posted! Rebecca Alber Edutopia Sign in to vote!

If not well planned it could lead to laziness particularly the learners.The volatility of survival in the 21st century would certainly require leaders who are highly analytical to cope with the challenges of survival. Looking at the scope of the crisis the world is facing today we can only hope that ' those who should lead the way should have sight to read the stars' Sign in to vote!
