ALL London organises webinars for the MFL community and this webinar is open to all MFL teachers.  We hope that you will like us and want to join!

In this webinar we will explore how we can use Google tools to practise and produce language through authentic cultural contexts.

We will explore Google Maps and MyMaps to put language learning in its place. We will look at the rich resources available to stimulate language learning in Google Earth and we will look at creating immersive 360 language learning experiences to practise oral and written production with Google Tour Creator.


Chris is passionate about providing professional learning which models great pedagogy, is personalised to the people and the context, is rich in technology and deep in thinking. After 15 years in many different roles as an award winning languages teacher, a senior leader in one of the UK’s most innovative schools, Director of the Emerging Sciences Victoria and his role as a Google Certified Innovator and member of the Google for Education International Advisory Board, Chris took on the challenge of starting up his own consultancy: Unstuck Learning Design.

Chris has expertise in design thinking, digital technology, STEM and learning spaces (both physical and virtual), learner centred pedagogy and learning models, strategies to enhance higher order thinking, learner efficacy and engagement, formative assessment strategies and leadership of learning organisations.
