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 andhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBRPzby8hMk 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.


In this session I will look at how I use the iPad in order to approach the blended teaching and learning of MFL. I will also show how I incorporate my Apple made resources into a Google Site, in order to join the best of both worlds!

I will focus on the following points:

  •  Pages : How to integrate Qwiqr into a Pages document for dictations, gapfill or speaking activities.
  •  Using the “insert audio” feature in Pages to create quick speaking assessments / listening tasks
  • Creating videos easily:
  •  Using screen record with Keynote in order to create a homemade video to explain a grammar point.
  •  Creating a Gif in Keynote
  •  Clips and its magic : using iPad to create video tutorial
  • How I integrate my resources creates on iPad/MacBook into a Google Site to encourage independent learning.

All these strategies have been tried and tested, and can be shared via Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams.

00:19:17 Rachel Smith: 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻
00:24:26 Mauro Ferreiro: Hi there! Mauro. Spanish trainee in London (training at Goldsmiths)
00:24:43 ALL London: [Just read back – Weds 27th January Richard Tallaron – thanks for spotting that Elizabeth!]
00:25:03 ALICE Semple: Lovely to see French paper and handwriting
00:25:14 ALL London: I was going to say that Alice!
00:25:39 ALL London: Reminds me of my superb native speaker teacher, Madame Ellington .. your students are lucky to have you, Karine!
00:27:31 ALL London: Now live on YOuTUbe – apologies – I had ot pressed th efinal button ‘go live’!!
00:29:36 Rachel Smith: this is great because it means it can be exported as Pdf into Google Classroom or Teams and the audio still works. If you record the audio straight into Pages it can be tricky to export for all to view and still hear the audio… hope that makes sense
00:30:09 Joe Dale: Any questions?
00:30:12 Rachel Smith: Pages is super intuitive to use too
00:31:30 Rachel Smith: I love that in Keynote that you can export as movie so I think is slightly more flexible than Pages especially for remote learning
00:31:47 Marisa Fernández: how do you insert the QWIQR into Pages?
00:31:52 Yamina Sadek kirk: this is brilliant
00:32:36 Joe Dale: @Marissa Just as an image. I recommend QUIQR app for creating QR codes on the iPad or of course QWIQR
00:32:59 Yamina Sadek kirk: are they both free ?
00:33:05 Joe Dale: Apologies for the typo Marisa
00:33:08 Marisa Fernández: thanks Joe, I will get it downloaded
00:34:29 Joe Dale: Pages comes with the iPad and QWIQR is free as is QUIQR
00:35:35 Vip: I love how easy it is to get children learning hands on with tasks on an iPad and how we can work on all 4 skill areas
00:37:04 ALICE Semple: Pages is great.
00:38:34 Rachel Smith: I love how if you know the menus on one iWork app you pretty much understand the menu in all the other iWork apps
00:39:11 ALICE Semple: I use the Russian one
00:40:18 Elizabeth Cottell: Q what did Karine press on to get the Emoji to replace the word?
00:40:47 Rachel Smith: I 💙 Keynote

00:46:43 ALL London: This is so attractively presented
00:49:03 Joe Dale: Thanks
00:51:19 Rachel Smith: As Karine says screen record is a go to for remote learning and so easy to use and you can easily upload to Google Drive and Teams
00:52:04 Carolina GR: Students need to have ipads as well or they can do with any other device?
00:52:49 Joe Dale: You could export keynotes as videos or Pages as PDFs
00:54:50 Vip: love clips – so easy to create videos
00:55:34 ALL London: Love the description .. ‘the will future’!
00:55:57 Joe Dale: Love the music!
00:56:15 ALL London: Can just imagine you swinging away there Joe
00:56:19 ALICE Semple: Simply beautiful
00:56:24 Noelia Rivas Gutierrez: me too !
00:56:35 ALL London: thi sneeds to be in that BBC channel for home learning
00:56:40 Joe Dale: I am. That’s why my video is turned off!
00:56:43 Yamina Sadek kirk: never thought about using Clip for lessons
00:56:46 Yamina Sadek kirk: love it
00:56:54 ALL London: We have found our BBC presenter here!
00:59:16 ALICE Semple: Can you just explain the method for the handwritten texts writing themselves that you use a lot?
01:00:19 Joe Dale: Can you clarify what you mean, ALice?
01:00:55 Joe Dale: Live titles are amazing in Clips. Easy subtitling!
01:01:15 Olenka Villavicencio: I’ve never used Clips.
01:01:16 ALICE Semple: The animated writing in the previous things – is it time lapse recording?
01:01:37 Carolina GR: What is the bottom again for the written speaking?
01:01:43 Olenka Villavicencio: It is quite similar Flipgrid.
01:02:02 Jocelyne LeBars: yes
01:03:40 Joe Dale: @Carolina – Can you clarify what you mean?
01:04:02 Carolina GR: When you speak your words come as subtitles
01:04:14 Greg Baxter: @Joe it’s a bug in the older iPads, reset your Keyboard Dictionary and it should come up. If not delete the emoji keyboard, then re-add it
01:04:18 Rachel Smith: There are slightly more features that FlipGrid I do love the live titles thing especially in the foreign langage….. so intuitive and easy to use
01:04:39 Joe Dale: Thanks Greg.
01:04:52 Greg Baxter: And try toggle predictive keyboard off and on
01:04:53 Olenka Villavicencio: Thanks a lot @Rachel
01:04:53 ALICE Semple: Great, thanks Karine
01:06:19 Rachel Smith: We did for introducing themselves….
01:07:49 Rachel Smith: The update doesn’t let you show your screen in the same the way……it’s so annoying ADE’s have complained to Apple 🤣🤣
01:08:20 Joe Dale: Thanks Rachel
01:08:33 Carolina GR: Perfect!!!
01:08:52 Rachel Smith: You can also edit the titles if they don’t spell quite right….
01:10:29 Joe Dale: True

01:12:25 ALICE Semple: Merci beaucoup. Some new takeaways and your presentation and choice of colours, backgrounds etc are beautiful.
01:12:57 Mauro Ferreiro: To be honest, my iPad is pretty much the best investment I did in 2020. Scanning, signing forms, etc. was done seamlessly. Also, my provider demands that our evidence portfolio be online, so it has been a gamechanger
01:13:03 Olenka Villavicencio: For me, lots of things are new cause I haven’t got an iPad. I have to buy one. 😊☀️
01:13:44 PRivaldi: Merci beaucoup – really interesting.

01:13:55 Kim Davies: Thank you, Karine! Really useful presentation!
01:13:56 Jessica Robinson: I really enjoyed that, Karine. I am a primary teacher and currently leading Spanish. The school is not overly enthusiastic with MFL, but the staff and children love using the iPads. all our KS2 children have iPads, as do teachers. I’m hoping to disseminate lots of these brilliant ideas to enthuse everyone! Merci beaucoup! 😁
01:13:57 Rachel Smith: 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
01:14:12 ALL London: Rachel – you are co-host if you feel liek sharing your dance with us!
01:14:15 Olenka Villavicencio: Mercy beaucoup, Karine! 😊

01:19:31 Rachel Smith: Can you link to Google Drive?
01:20:01 Rachel Smith: No it doesn’t always work
01:20:17 Rachel Smith: I was saying that QWIQR was ace
01:20:21 Mauro Ferreiro: Q- Would it be possible to have a part 2 with the apps she finds useful? – not just the ones that she uses from the Apple suite
01:20:48 Marisa Fernández: when will this recording be available?
01:21:06 Mauro Ferreiro: Q- Also, how is she sharing her iPad screen?
01:21:23 Marisa Fernández: sorry I meant Q
