I’ve been working with Anamil Tech on Pacca Alpaca for a while now. The apps Pacca Alpaca and Pacca Alpaca Travel Playtime have proved very popular and are now available in English, Arabic, French, German, Spanish, Mandarin and Welsh. Well, there is now a Youtube channel of free videos to accompany the app. You can subscribe […]

#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 […]

Muy Interesante Junior

My lovely husband John went to México in April and I promised afterwards that I’d share some of things that he bought back. However, I never got past the first item(s)! Time to put that right! I was overjoyed that he returned with a copy of Muy Interesante Junior. Although I’ve never seen the Junior […]

Teachmeet Brum #tmbrum

Last night I braved the cross city traffic and went to King Edwards Five Ways (nowhere near the Five Ways I know!) for TeachmeetBrum. Organised by @frogphilp aka Steve Philp of Paganel Primary, it was an intimate affair (but that’s not a bad thing!) but that’s a good thing as we all talked to one […]

Night Zookeeper – Teleporting Torch app

Just before Christmas I wrote about Night Zookeeper’s Drawing Torch app , a brilliant app that encourages users to use their imagination and creativity to undertake missions, drawing with their magic torch. I was therefore very excited this week to hear that Night Zookeeper has launched a new app – Teleporting Torch. The premise is similar […]

Let out for good behaviour – #ILILC3

There are many ways to ‘break free’ of the walls of your classroom, both physical and virtual, and this session will involve both. Participation is […]
