01:13:21 Heather: Song ideas- I have bought the soundtrack from the film Coco-its ‘great for listening and reading tasks as it has versions of songs in Spanish and English
01:14:00 ALL London: Great idea to do riddles.. I like the point system so that suggestions are not random
01:15:45 Jo Ryland: Suggestion for points, when answering riddle / thinking type questions – if the students are using a platform which allows change of font colour, students can answer in GREEN if very sure (+3 points), AMBER if reasonably sure (+2) ad RED if unsure (+1), if they get it wrong, they loose those points, making GREEN quite a risky option.
01:15:51 ALL London: Superb videos from Onatti
01:16:20 ALL London: Great idea, Jo!
