iPads in French


It has been fantastic having iPads in my Y7 French class this year, we have used the device frequently in meaningful ways and the kids’ repertoire of tools is becoming impressive. Today, having drafted a piece of extended writing about what they typically eat and drink for each meal of the day, including an introduction to the concept of le goûter, we focused entirely on pronunciation. Students had previously peer-assessed speaking work using ShowMe so they each had targets to pay attention to this time. We brainstormed specific tips for ‘sounding French’ on Edmodo, kids then checked any tricky-to-pronounce words using the speaker function of the Google translate app. When ready, they then used the Educreations app to make a narrated slide for each of their meals, posting to Edmodo for all to see.
