I’ve just co-hosted the #UKEdChat MFL special with @icpjones
We talked about many things including favourite activities, assessment, ‘great works of literature’, the role of technology and what languages should be studied. Great fun trying to keep up with the stream of tweets and reply/respond. It made for lots of frantic retweeting, and I need to reread the stream.
Here are the questions posed – thanks to @ukedchat who kept the questions coming from the list that Isabelle and I had compiled, leaving us free to reply and respond to people!
- What’s your favourite #MFL activity?
- How do you/ will you assess your pupils with #MFL Progress?
- What great foreign literature have you used in lessons? From primary to post-16?
- Which language(s) are taught in primary and what songs/methods/rhymes work best?
- Is there a place for technology in #MFL? What tech/programmes/apps do you use?
- What’s your ‘can’t live without’ #MFL tool?
You can catch up on what was said – or rather tweeted – via this Storify. (Not all tweets seem to have been pieced up; for example, my first one in the Storify is actually the third of a series of several about QuizQuizTrade)
And there’s a summary of the hour as well as an archive of all the tweets here too.
One upshot of the evening is that start of #mflchat on the first Tuesday of the month. So if you’re on Twitter, join in. And if you’re not, join Twitter and then join in! Stop press – the first one has already been arranged!
