« Engaging and motivating language learners with new technologies | Main | Two stars and a wish - assessment for learning in MFL »



Hi Joe,

Thanks for your comment about both the blog and the podcast. We got the music from, and used a minidisc player with mic and, of all things a PDA to record the sound, and mixed it all together with Audacity. The idea was given to us by Ewan McIntosh, who I saw at Language World in Manchester. We're trying to up the ante in terms of using new technology here in Suffolk, and any comments and ideas are welcome - I'll be in Liverpool in October, and if you have time, would like to pick your brains on a few things!
We're trying also to find a way to 'digitally celebrate' the cultural diversity of our students, and I'd like to find a digital map that would allow students to log on and pinpoint where they come from...any thoughts?

Hi Alex,

Did you read the terms of use for the freeplaymusic site?

It says 'Personal Non-Commercial Use (Non-revenue generating or associated) Personal use does not include any broadcast use - web, blog, podcast or other.

Educational, Non-Commercial use (limited to student use on school grounds for in classroom projects-non broadcast.

There are many podsafe sites out there though. Here are the ones I've found:

As for a 'digital map celebration', you could try I've not used it myself, but I think it would allow you to achieve what you're suggesting.

I look forward to meeting you in Liverpool. Do you have plans to come to the conference on the Isle of Wight on 20th October? Ewan is the keynote.

Oh. Well I guess I'll have to take it down then. Thanks for the other advice!

I heartily agree with you that Silvia's students will enjoy the project assigned to them. I also think it will greatly increase their awareness and appreciation of Hispanic culture. What a great way to use technology as a teaching medium!
