ICT and Languages Conference 2012

Whether you're a complete beginner or a self confessed geek, the ICT and Languages Conference is the place to go to meet and learn from other MFL teachers in an informal and supportive atmosphere. If last year's conference is anything to go by, this year's promises to become the best CPD event of the year

Technology in the MFL classroom is the Marmite of many MFL teachers, who either love it or loathe it. Funny thing really, given how much ICT has helped not just to enhance, but to transform the MFL classroom for the better.

The ICT and Languages Conference takes place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February 2012 and is, as Joe Dale – one of the plenary speakers – has already pointed out, the must attend event of the year for teachers who are seeking to exploit the possibilities new technologies afford both teaching and learning.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or a self confessed geek, the ICT and Languages Conference is the place to go to meet and learn from other MFL teachers in an informal and supportive atmosphere. If last year’s conference is anything to go by, this year’s promises to become the best CPD event of the year.

I too am one of the plenary speakers and will be talking about how to harness social media and social networking to help us transform the way we teach and learn… for the better!

    Feel bad that this is the first I’ve heard of this conference. Would love the chance to share the 100 Word Challenge which is a solid link of language & ICT. Any idea who I should contact?

      Hi Julia, I can help you spread the word. Have you also thought about getting in touch with Joe Dale or any of the people listed in his MFL UK twitter list?

Do you know of a teaching and learning resource you would like to share? Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
