Using technology for collaboration #LW2018

  This year at Language World I was invited to present some ideas for using technology for collaboration in language learning. I teach primary so the focus was on that age group but there are many ideas and tools that are equally applicable for young and old! In spite of some technical hitches and running […]

East Midlands Primary Languages conference

A little later than planned, and with huge apologies, here are my presentations from the East Midlands Primary Languages Conference held on Nottingham on 5th December! Más vale tarde que nunca.  Mieux vaut tard que jamais! Besser spät als gar nicht. Firstly, my presentation on Crosscurricular links: Making link – linking languages across the primary […]

#eTUK17 – the sketchnotes

I spent this past weekend in Nottingham at the 12th eTwinning UK National Conference held at The DeVere Jubilee Conference Centre – always the NCSL to me though! The name of the venue might have changed but the sense of community, fun and learning never varies, and once more I came away inspired, energised and still laughing at […]

My #sketchnotes from the eTwinning National Conference 2016

Walking the walk as well as talking the talk, I’ve tidied up my sketch notes from Nottingham and the National eTwinning Conference, added references that I needed to look up and completed quotations that I’d not managed to finish. They’re presented below in chronological order. I hope that they give you a taste of the weekend’s sessions […]

UkEdChat guest blog post.

At about 1130am on Friday I was contacted and asked by UKEDChat if I wanted to write a guest blog post about the impact Brexit could/will have on language learning. I didn’t write it straight away for several reasons not least that I didn’t actually have time until very late that night to think. When […]

Lisibo talks 3 – Sketchnoting for beginners @ #eTUK16

This weekend I’ve been in Nottingham at the NCL (I think that’s what it’s now called!) for the National eTwinning Conference. “Interesting” given the events on Friday but also good timing as I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather have been at such a time, reaffirming the joy and value of collaboration. After several requests following […]

#eTwAmbsUK – eTwinning Ambassadors Conference

eTwinning Ambassadors from across the UK met together at NCL in Nottingham to find out what’s new in eTwinning, share ideas and plan for the future. It was great to see so many old and new friends, and meet up with LiPS ladies, Erzsi, Vikki and Fátima as well as other language mates like Helena and […]

#PracPed15 – Using technology to enhance Primary Language Learning

My session at the wonderful Practical Pedagogies conference centred around the use of technology to enhance Primary Language Learning. Key points I made included: technology is not  just for the pupils but also for the teacher; it is just one tool we have to use; it is not always the best tool for the job. I […]

eTwinning National Conference: 5th-7th June: NCTL #eTUK15

¡Más vale tarde que nunca! The first weekend of June saw the annual National eTwinning Conference take place at NCTL in Nottingham. Once more it was a weekend of learning, laughter and (can’t think of another L) celebrating the wonders of collaboration across boundaries. I spoke once more about Twitter – Are you a Twit or […]

British Council Ambassadors from across the UK assembled in Manchester this weekend to meet one another and find out more about British Council projects, strategies and plans. Starting on Friday lunchtime and finishing today at midday, the conference was ‘all go’ with early starts (first session at 8.30am on a Saturday?) and a timetable that was […]
