Storytelling using Visual Narratives : LEAP Online CPD

17 Sep

Basic CMYK



On Saturday last week my colleague Liz Black and I spent the day in Walsall with the lovely people from LeapOnline

We spent the day learning all about how to use visual narratives in a languages context as part of an ongoing funded project called My Story.

We looked specifically at using iMovie and ComicLife apps for iPad.

We had an amazing day and you can find my notes and the accompanying handouts attached.  Please excuse the terrible drawings … art is not my forte, clearly!

See also a flyer for LeapOnline CPD courses including Erasmus+ funded immersion courses for all sectors from Primary to HE.

Emilia and her team will talk you through the application process should you need further help or support in applying.


Wishing you a wonderful first term back in school.

Keep fighting the good MFL fight!

World Party! The New NC for Languages …

9 Sep

Here is the article I wrote over the summer for Teach Secondary magazine (well worth subscribing to) about the wonderful opportunities afforded to us by the new NC. There has been quite a bit of negative press about languages and transition etc in the papers over the last week or two but I remain upbeat. Look at the freedoms, the chance to teach creatively, the importance of IU, the use of authentic texts…it really makes me wish I spent more time in the classroom than I currently do!

Happy reading and as always your comments are welcome below.
