Les technologies

A decade ago, MFL new technology and media units were focused mainly on the internet. But language learners today can develop grammar, conversation skills and vocabulary by discussing Kindles versus books, the pros and cons of 3D or the endless possibilities of the iPad. Jegcleeve's resource explores digital technology in a creative lesson that develops core language skills.

What is it?

An interactive whiteboard activity that uses recent iPad adverts from French television as stimuli for discussions. How useful is the technology?

How is it useful?

The resource develops listening and comprehension skills.
