ModernLanguages, ModernTeaching – TopTips for Primary Language Teaching

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Top-Tips200I’ve finally managed to upload my presentations to Slideshare so here is the first. There are links throughout the presentation to useful sites and resources, and I’d especially refer you to the last few slides with helpful links to e.g. LightBulbLanguages and the ALL site. However, I’ve added a few below too.

Rachel Hawkes’ phonics

Music for Los vocales D.I.S.C.O.

Rhabarberbarbara

Jo Rhy Jones phonic activities 

Oso Pardo pdf

Boowa et Kwala – Peut tu marchez comme un canard? Fingerpaint song

Padlet.com – for collecting ideas (online post it notes)

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!!!

Technology in Modern Foreign Languages – A practitioner’s perspective

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010


Technology in Modern Foreign Languages – A practitioner’s perspective is a post by José Picardo in which he announces the online publication of a series of blog posts that originally appeared on his blog Box of Tricks over December/January, written by a wide variety of language practitioners about their experiences of and advice for using technology in the MFL classroom.

If you didn’t read the original posts, they’re well worth a read (even the one I wrote!) – and now they’re downloadable in one go.

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Following on from @dajbelshaw‘s #movemeon, Isabelle Jones started a hashtag for language teachers – #mfltips about which she has blogged here.

The top tips offered on Twitter by the MFL Twits have been published online using Yudu and are well worth a look.
I’ve embedded it below. Why not pick a tip every now and again, and try to implement it.
