Audio in MFL
Mary Cooch – 4 March, 19 April, 8 May 2013
“Give your class a voice!”
Use audio to improve skills in the MFL classroom
We’ve come a long way since students in a French class repeated phrases from a cassette tape played by their teacher at the front of the room.With the advent of internet, smartphones, ipodtouches and tablets, making yourself heard has become not only much easier but also much more varied in output.
In this one day session, run by Mary Cooch, ICT trainer and MFL teacher of 25 years’ experience, you’ll learn how to harness free software andnew technologies. Create audio files yourself to help your students’listening skills and show them how to generate and share spoken homeworks with you using the latest applications – which they may have in their pockets right now!
