A TiLT Webinar with Rachel Smith: Apple Apps for blended learning.



Chat document: Chat

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 session we will look at the iPad apps that I have found most useful during the COVID19 crisis and how we can continue to use them as part of  blended learning.

We will look at the use of Keynote, screen record, Clips and Numbers app. We will also consider how we can use these tools with other tools such as Google Classroom. This session is for you if you have just one iPad or a MacBook.  You don’t need to be at a 1:1 school to harness the creativity of the Apple apps;  you’ll learn that they are flexible, adaptable and shareable.

Rachel Smith is a languages teacher and digital learning co-ordinator at St Ninian’s High School on the Isle of Man. She has taught languages for 23 years in a wide variety of settings both in the UK and on the island. She is an Apple Distinguished Educator and Apple Professional Learning Specialist.
