Enhancing Modern Foreign Language Lessons with iPad.

Enhancing Modern Foreign Language Lessons With iPad.

Wednesday 17th @ 3:30pm

Join us on Wednesday 17th March at 3:30pm to explore why iPad is the perfect language lab!

During this 90 minute webinar, Apple Professional Learning Specialist, Oscar Stringer, will demonstrate how iPad can develop higher level thinking skills with MFL students, differentiate teaching for differing abilities, encourage independent learning and enhance vocabulary practice.

Explore the potential iPad offers as a digital pencil case to create content quickly to support the aims of the national curriculum for languages:

• Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
• Speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
• Write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
• Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied
