Brainchild of @deputymitchell to get the world blogging in a simple and easy way, Feb29th.net has collected flags from 91 nations and been visited over 21,000 times. More importantly, thousands of people, young and old have added […]

I really enjoyed Neil Jones’ presentation at ALL NorthEast Spanish day. You can find all sorts of ideas and resources on his blog – http://mfljones.wordpress.com  – well worth a look whatever phase you teach. I loved some of the advertisements he showed.  Here are two of them.  Torres has been forgiven and I love funny dogs. […]

AQA – Creative and motivational language learning in the primary classroom. Part 2

On Tuesday I was in sunny (yes, it was sunny!) Manchester, delivering my AQA course. Apart from the problems with the internet, I believe a good day was had by all – lunch was once more a highlight! Rather than repeat all the links, can I refer you to my last post where you will […]

Edonis interview with David Noble

This evening I was very excited to be interviewed by David Noble aka @parslad as part of his PhD Edonis project – ‘an interpretivist study of the social web and PLNs’ Along with many others (there’s a list of my illustrious company here), I volunteered a while away to answer questions on my online learning […]

Here is the Slidecast of my second presentation from Brighton. Apologies for the audio cutting out before the end – no idea what happened there!  Perhaps the iRiver overheated! Apologies to @wizenedcrone for forgetting her real name – it’s Fiona Joyce!!! And the German site I mentioned was called GenkiGerman. Top tips for the Primary […]

Typealyzer – what type is your blog?

Via my FriendFeed, I was asked by John Johnston (via Twitter!) what type of blog I had, linking to Typealyzer. Being a nosey, inquisitive soul, I decided to find out! And what I found was rather interesting. I’m forever doing quizzes and surveys on Facebook like Which Sesame Street puppet are you? (Zoey) Which Heroes […]

Lingus.tv

Karen aka Spanishblog has, for the second time in a week, pointed me in the direction of an interesting Spanish resource – this time, Lingus.tv. Based in Barcelona, Lingus.tv uses its own situation comedy ‘5 y acción’ to teach useful phrases through short – and usually rather amusing – episodes featuring Paco, Sandro, Eva, Michael […]

Twitterfone

I’ve been trying to summer-clean my e-mails this evening, deleting ones that are no longer needed, bookmarking sites referenced and archiving ones from fora that contain resources. Whilst doing so, I came across an e-mail reminding me that I’d requested an invite to Twitterfone, and sending me the necessary code to get an account. I […]
