Expert in a day: iPads/tablets in the MFL classroom

Course code: 
iPads and tablets are powerful tools to excite and engage students,
and get them doing more of the work more of the time! In one day
you will learn how to use a carefully selected range of functions,
sites and apps, which will provide a whole new dimension to your
department’s teaching and revitalise your Schemes of Work.
This course is aimed at Secondary/FE MFL teachers relatively new
to iPad/tablet use in the classroom and will provide ready-to-teach
ideas, as well as helping you to avoid some of the pitfalls. This is a
hands-on course and you will need to bring a fully charged iPad/
tablet loaded with the apps recommended, and preferably with
access to email.
By the end of the day you will have specific
teaching ideas for all age ranges, most of which you will be able to
put into practice the very next day.
