Month: March 2010

Here’s my second presentation from Vida Latina, offering ideas for making Spanish cross curricular. Included are ideas from my classroom and also links to other cross curricular ideas such as Mira Miró and Jumping through hoops.

I sadly forgot to press record on my iRiver so there’s no audio this time I’m afraid. However, if you’d like to ask questions, please feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll try and reply.

Here comes the first of my presentations from Vida Latina last week at Aston University. The conference was organised jointly by Links into Languages and the ALL Spanish Committee, and focussed on Latin America.

AS part of the day, we had a session on International links – a double act between Liz Hitchcock of the British Council and me.
After Liz had talked about the Global Gateway and ePals, I shared some experiences of how we have gone about links with other schools at Whitehouse Common.
Here’s my presentation as a Slidecast.

Coming soon….

I’m really aware that I have a backlog of posts awaiting publication.

Over the next few days, I’ll be uploading presentations from
Education Show
Vida Latina
Primary Language Show
…and also reporting back from other sessions!
The audio may take a little longer though….
It’s great to be busy – sorry if you feel I’m neglecting you!!

Another example of the wonder of animation from Oscar Stringer.

This clearly shows how animation can be used in the primary classroom to present and rehearse vocabulary as well as make ‘pop videos’
Find out more on Oscar’s blog.
And if you’re going to the Primary Languages Show in Liverpool next Friday, you can catch Oscar sharing more ideas and examples of animating in the PLL classroom.

Tango!

| Leave a comment

Still not had time to do that ‘proper blog post’ as I’ve spent the afternoon editing video of the tango demonstration and workshop we had yesterday at Vida Latina.

Below are the two demonstrations by Loyd and Sandra from TangoInBrum. Did you know that tango is all improvised? I didn’t!
You’ll also find a Slideshare I found tango.
And our efforts are at the bottom.
Enjoy.



All a bit topsy turvy I guess, reporting on a course I ran on Tuesday after a presentation I did today but heigh ho!

Tuesday saw me heading across the city – or actually around it on the M6 lead by my motorway crazy SatNav- to Hillcrest School where I was delivering a day of training for Primary Language teachers on ICT in the Primary Language Classroom.
It was a really good day from my point of view with lovely food – bacon sandwiches for coffee break! – a great venue and marvellous enthusiastic delegates. And the added bonus of a visit to the Lingua centre at lunchtime.
To save on paper and also because I think online notes are more useful – click the link rather than type it in makes more sense to me – I made a wiki for the day on which all the notes, presentations and some of the outcomes are posted. I think that’s the way to go – what do you think?

I had the pleasure and privilege of speaking at the Education Show today. I volunteered myself, admittedly, but I hardly thought they’d say yes! I’d attended a previous seminar there and had been rather unimpressed and thought ‘I could do better!’ – so I put my money where my mouth is – and hope I succeeded.

Below is my presentation which will shortly become a Slidecast once I’ve managed to find the time to download and edit the audio.
Comments and queries welcome :o)

PS Thanks to @StephenDoBe for the simultaneous tweeting, and to my all the Twittermates who tweeted multilingual greetings to my audience!


I did a day of ICT in PLL training today at Hillcrest School and Sixth Form Centre. More of that in another post..

However, at lunchtime, we were able to visit Lingua, the language centre at Hillcrest. Similar to the Europa Centre, Lingua offers schools the opportunity to visit their shopping street which transports itself between France, Germany and Spain on a regular basis. groups can visit for a half day or whole day, taking part in activities for half the time and then venturing into the street to buy items – virtually, or in the case of souvenirs, actually!
Below are pictures I took today of the street – it’s currently in Germany!

Have a look at the Lingua website for more details!
