This course will ensure you develop confidence and provide practical ideas for using iPads effectively to enhance MFL and support EAL students. Take time to explore apps that encourage creativity, allow students to collaborate, and ensure both teachers and students get the most from this ever developing and relevant technology.

Discover More and Empower all with Technology.

Working with free apps, create quizzes, collaboration tasks, video and animations. Explore the digital portfolio apps, presentation apps, QR Codes and apps for MFL student feedback and peer assessment.

    Feedback from previous training days

    “Many thanks for a great day learning about how to use iPads in MFL. I really learned loads and gained confidence using Ipads in class. I like the way your advice and tips were targeted to the variety of different contexts in each participant’s school, and the hands on approach to practising using the apps. I am taking lots of ideas back to my school and am already implementing them into my practice.” – Merci!

    “I found the course very helpful from my starting-point of not using my iPad much for teaching. The course was very hands-on and enjoyable. From my first day back at work afterwards I have been putting what I learnt into practise and will be feeding back to my department in due course.” – Emily
