ICT and Languages Conference, University of Southampton, 9-10 February 2013

I am hugely looking forward to the third #ililc conference to take place at the University of Southampton. This year's programme offers a wide range of sessions aiming to meet all participants’ individual needs and giving them lots of opportunities to really get to grips with the new ideas being demonstrated and share good practice in a nurturing environment.

This event is renowned for its friendly and supportive atmosphere and whilst many sessions have an ICT focus, there are plenty of other sessions which will exemplify many aspects of creative and inspiring MFL teaching and learning.

The idea of the MFL Show and Tell session is to give teachers an opportunity to share good  language learning and teaching practice-ICT-related or not-in a relaxed informal environment. We will have access to a data projector, a screen for presentations and one to display the event's Twitterstream, plus wifi connectivity of course. If you don't normally speak at such events, do come along to have a go and share what you are doing in the classroom.  Last year’s efforts included quite a few songs and many laughs…
