  • Jamilla Fazal
    Jamilla Fazal Philippines I found this very interesting. I feel I will have better understanding of it once I actually use it. I am a TEFL teacher working in Asia so I think this will be very good for keeping in contact with my students in between classes as we are in the digital age I feel they will be more interested in practicing the work we conduct in the class room and will not see it as homework but rather as a social feed. 2014-10-21 04:10:00
