#ililc2 - ICT and Languages Conference, February 2012

I returned last night from the ICT and Languages Conference which was held in Southampton this weekend.  Last year's conference set the bar really high, but in my opinion this year was even better.  I'll blog in more detail about the talks I went to and what I have taken away from them at a later date, but I thought I'd post my presentations now as people have been asking about them.

Firstly, from Saturday: I do and I remember - tricks of the primary trade and active learning techniques 
I do-and-i-understand

Here are the links to the resources that I used in the presentation:

Ferris Bueller "Boring Economics Teacher" clip - everything that active learning isn't!

All the Barbapapa videos you could ever want (can't find the one I used!)

Months of the year dominoes

Months flashcards, with an explanation of the images

Human dominoes

First year of Spanish shape puzzle

Trash or treasure? (If you'd like the original Publisher document to edit to another language, please contact me)

¡Zas! vegetable card

¡Zas! fruit card

¡Zas! colours

¡Zas! Publisher template

Paf! colours

Le grand cerf (towards the bottom of the list)

And from Sunday: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - adapting a model for independent writing
Reduce Reuse Recycle #ililc2

Both sessions were audio-recorded, so when I receive copies of the recordings I'll embed the audio to give you a more complete version of the presentations and a better idea of how to use the resources.

Something that wasn't recorded - I HOPE - was my performance of Le Navet Enorme at Saturday evening's Show and Tell.  The script is resource 7.2 and here is the PowerPoint:
