MFL Show and Tell?


The idea of the MFL Show and Tell session is to give teachers an opportunity to share good practice on the use of technology in the languages classroom in a relaxed informal environment. The session will take place in the:
Jurys Inn Hotel Southampton, Charlotte Place, Southampton, SO14 0TB
from 7.00 p.m - 10.00 p.m on Saturday 9th February 2013.
We hope to have to two data projectors, a screen for presentations and one to display the event's Twitterstream. plus wifi connectivity of course. We will have one laptop set up. If you want to show a presentation, please have it on a stick to save time.
If you would like to come along as an attendee, please click edit on the top right-hand side of the navigation bar and add your name and school/organisation. If you'd like to speak, add the title of your talk as well. Please sign both to keep track of numbers if you are presenting to allow us to keep track of numbers. The length of your slot will depend on how many volunteers we have. We would particularly encourage those who don't normally speak at such [[#|events]] to have a go and share what you are doing in the classroom. Your presentation doesn't have to be IT related, just good teaching!
We suggest you have your evening meal before you arrive as there will be no nibbles provided. However, there will be a bar to ensure the evening goes with a swing!
The MFL Show and Tell is free thanks to the kind sponsorship of Televic without whom this exciting event would not be possible.
There is a strict limit of 60 people for the Show and Tell. THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL AS OF THURSDAY 7th FEB
