Classroom Technology Snapshot

mot du jour Image: Ma Maitresse It is May 2013 and week 4 of term 2. What am I doing with technology in my class?

Year 8

My year 8s love using their mobile phones with the French apps I showed them in the first week of the school year. Before lesson starts the boys are playing soccer and rugby games on their phones with a French team in it because they know that relates to learning French. These students do not have laptops.

We have been to a supermarket online and done a cross curriculum shop
We are preparing an oral presentation on Cuisine which is supported by slides
We are getting better at using wordreference.com and reverso.net instead of a translator
We are making an electronic display of the things we like and the things other people like
We practice our vocab with Provoc and Imagiers on You Tube
We have uploaded exercises onto LMS

Year 9s

We have just presented an iMovie or PowerPoint/Keynote movie about ourselves in french
We have learnt space vocabulary with movies and ProVoc
We have watched little French videos of Cite de l’espace
We have learnt to use reverso.net and wordreference.com really well

  1. Cathy; This is learning with fun and therefore with desire. Fantastic. I visualize you writing an e-book on this subject. You have the right experience for it. Posts are great; greater is compiling them between two covers. I adore your work.

    • That’s a very encouraging comment. Thank you. I cannot get my head around e-books at all – not even reading other people’s e-books. I can do websites and paper books but I find e-books a bit odd. I might have a go at one one day when I have a lot more time.
