A TiLT Webinar with Jimena Licitra: “Super teachers in the new normal”

What a fantastic webinar prepared by Jimena – thank you!


Link to Presentation.

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.


  1. My teaching experience during lockdown: I will sum up what did and didn’t work for me, and go over some real examples.
  2. How to teach in the new normal: We will discuss the 3 possible scenarios we face as teachers —asynchronous teaching, synchronous teaching, blended approach.
  3. Suggested strategies: How can teachers plan for the new normal where they are delivering face-to-face lessons as well as some online lessons for children who can’t attend, or in case of local lockdowns how lessons can be successfully delivered remotely. We will also see how teachers can help learners catch up with what they’ve missed as well as advice on what would be best covered in class face-to-face or at home asynchronously.
  4. Showcasing: Quizizz, Wakelet, Flipgrid, Slidesmania.
  5. Other interesting tools to consider: Just Mote, Pear Deck, Decktoys.
  6. Q&A


I am a translator, editor and teacher with 21 years’ experience specializing in MFL (Modern Foreign Languages), based in Madrid, Spain.

I work as a German and English Teacher at a Primary and Secondary Education School in Madrid. I also work as a Translation Trainer at Cálamo&Cran since 2002 and until September 2020 I was a Secondary Teachers Trainer at University of UDIMA.

My passions are teaching, learning and world languages. I speak Spanish (native), English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Russian. And last, but not least, I am a proud mom of 4 bilingual kids.
