“We wanted students to use 21st century skills to expand their knowledge and learn English within a framework of culture and citizenship. Students and their teachers have a range of dynamic, new, digital and print materials for use in class and at home. Online, offl ine and digital content creates an environment that is fun, fast-moving and familiar for students who are digital natives. And for less digitally native teachers-or digital tourists-it provides a user friendly tool which enhances the teaching experience.”
