In this flashmeeting, we are hoping to do some hard thinking and hold a mirror up to our own practice. With numbers of language learners inevitably (?) increasing with the Ebacc, is doing what we always do a valid option?
  • Easy one to start with... What does a dream languages curriculum look like?
  • ...so how do we assess this dream curriculum? - Let's help the exam boards with some practical ideas.
  • Is technology a panacea or a placebo? - Will technology solve all of our woes or does it just make the bitter pill sweeter?
  • How else can we make our voices heard as a teaching profession - riots? strikes?
  • Highlights and lowlights of your year?
  • Show and tell - your best learning activity this year
  • AOT (any other thoughts...)
We will use this popplet to record the ideas wherever possible - if you would like to be an editor drop me an email - charte@cramlingtonlv.co.uk
