A TiLT Webinar with Ellie Chettle Cully





ALL London organises webinars for the MFL community and this webinar, held in a Zoom room and also viewable on an unlisted YouTube stream, is open to all MFL teachers.  We hope that you will like us and want to join!

We thank Joe Dale for co-ordinating  the TiLT (Technology in Language Teaching)  series of webinars, bringing together teachers who are interested in  developing their use of technology in their teaching.  As well as  enhancing our skills, we also get to meet other ‘keenies’  from across the globe, and can get to know each other informally by chatting before, during and after the webinar.

We also thank the presenters, who give freely of their time and expertise.  Where possible, most sessions are recorded and available for viewing later.


This session will explore a range of websites and tech tools that, whilst first discovered during the period of remote learning, can be used to enrich and enliven lessons as we make the transition back to face-to-face teaching. From SEND pupils to rapid graspers, discover how these tried-and-tested tools can be adapted to support, challenge and ensure progression all pupils within the primary languages classroom.
