Hello and welcome to my blog
I am a MFL teacher (French and Spanish) and Head of Year 7 at a secondary school in the North West. My background is in teaching TEFL and I have lived in both France and Spain for a number of years. I have always been passionate about languages and love keeping up-to-date with new ideas and skills that will engage my students and help them learn more effectively. This blog is aimed at MFL teachers who are new to incorporating ICT resources into their classroom to help them access some of the quality resources available today. However I hope the posts I write also inspire teachers of any subject/level.
I am also interested in a few areas of education in addition to MFL, including new ICT developments, games mechanics in education (such as ExtraCredits), leadership, coaching skills and emotional intelligence.
I will aim to post resources that I have personally found to be effective and if I can offer you any time saving tips from what I’ve learned, even better. I hope the links and ideas I share will be useful, fun and inspiring for you and your students. All views are my own.
