Here is the presentation for the session delivered for lovely ITT students at Westdene. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any more questions.
This year’s programme offers a wide range of session with the emphasis very much on ‘hands-on’ workshops. Delegates can choose their workshops and sessions to meet their individual needs, and will have lots of opportunity to really get to grips with the new ideas being demonstrated – and share good practice in a nurturing environment.
This event is renowned for its friendly and supportive atmosphere, and everyone will find a full range of workshops and seminars to suit their needs. Whilst many sessions have an ICT focus, there are plenty of other sessions which serve to exemplify many aspects of creative and inspiring MFL teaching and learning.
The conference is supported by a sizeable exhibition of sponsors, including top publishers, software companies and other resource providers.
This year will include sessions on:
Using iOs android Apps for interactive learning, iTunes, Podcasts and other for personalised learning, designing an MFL App, ‘Animating’ grammar. peer and self assessment through mobile technology
Using Twitter and other social media tools such as Edmodo & Posterous, effective Blogging, WIKIs and using online tools to record & share learning
