As part of my (sporadic) ongoing series on “How we talk about teaching” I’d like to offer up my (made up but sadly influenced by reality) version of how I see lots of Facebook conversations develop on teaching related groups here in Korea. Here is a preview:
If you’d like to see the rest of the conversation please click here. I believe you really *should click on the conversation because otherwise this post will not make much sense. Here is the link again. Go ahead and click it. I used the pretty fun and relatively user friendly http://fakeconvos.com/ along with my memory and imagination to create the conversation.
I wonder if any of characters, discussion styles, or topics here seem familiar to readers.
I also wonder if anything here seems specific to Korea and certain (non-#KELTchat) group in Korea. Does this happen on teaching related groups outside of Korea? I assume it does but something here seems very “foreign teachers in Korea” to me.
Finally, I wonder what I missed (aside from criticizing Korean teachers and mentioning Hitler). Comments and questions very welcome.
