The idea of the MFL Show and Tell session is to give teachers an opportunity to share good practice on the use of technology in the classroom in a relaxed, informal environment.

The session will take place in our brand new dining hall and 6th Form Centre, where there will be access to a networked laptop computer, speakers, a data projector and screen for presentations, as well as very comfortable seating! There will be access to Wi-Fi.

The day will commence at 9:30am with welcome drinks which will be followed by a morning session from 10:00 am -12:30 pm. A hot lunch will then be served in our dining hall. The afternoon session will begin at 1:30 pm until 3:30 pm, when the event ends. Both morning and afternoon sessions will consist of formal presentations and discussions on the topics outlined on this wiki. The actual programme is available for download here .

Anyone can present and you don't have to put yourself forward at this stage, however it would greatly help us with the organisation if you indicated in advance if you would like to present or lead a discussion.

If you would like to come along as a speaker or attendee, please sign up by adding your name to the list below (click edit on the top right-hand side of the navigation bar) and add your details to this page, below. It would be great if you could say what you'd like to talk about or what you would like to discuss in an open forum.

If you have any trouble signing up whatsoever, please don't hesitate to email me at picardo.jl at (don't forget to change the at for a @ ).

Let's not forget this is a by-teachers-for-teachers event and we can shape it as we see fit.

The event is kindly being sponsored by Nottingham High School by providing the venue free of charge and by Links into Languages East Midlands, Naace and Mary Glasgow Magazines (Scholastic).

The event is free.
