Priscilla caught on the way Pr. Ellis stressed the word "Chunks" several times, as he introduced the first of the now 11 Principles for instructed second Language acquisition. It was quickly decided that it could be made into a TShirt that got quickly sketched on a phone sketching app!
Then our inner rockchicks thought that the Principles could be listed on the back, just like the Concert Dates! But when you consider that even the Digest for the 10 Original Principles span over five pages, the idea was soon abandoned!
Far from backing down our newly dreamt money making venture, attention moved from TShirt to the more cost effective yet effective message bearer that badges are! Not the Open Badge variety that I am currently falling head over heels for, but the Badge Badge, the one you pin on your lapel or pencil case or iPad sleeve!
So here they are, those badges, ready for mass production for a huge potential market of Language teachers and learners!
