I'm gearing up to be able to direct teachers of MFL to advice on podcasting and videoconferencing.

We have some knowledge of this - and a course has been developed for us which is being delivered by

I'm also picking up random teachers interested in offering tips on this sort of thing.

Mainly we suggest an eTwinning training workshop, which is free as long as about 30-40 teachers come along, this can cover blogging or podcasting as offered on eTwinning.

We also let all sorts of audio files be shared on which is free to use and multilingual.

Our goal is to be able to offer this for MFL, whereas previously we have done it with music, storytelling etc.

We're currently dealing with around 1000 primary schools wanting help with MFL teaching through links with schools either in France or elsewhere in the world. About a third of that number secondaries.

Many of them have never really considered ICT on any serious level at all.

For beginners we like Poducate Me and the podcast tutorial on BetterWorld (a BT site)

Any views?

Hi Liz,

Thanks for your comment. I think the Assignment:Podcast site is a great place to start as is Poducate Me

I've just discovered some more guides on podcasting which I think MFL teachers should find useful.

That said, hands-on training is essential too with someone to ask if you get stuck.

I can highly recommend the eTwinning workshops run by The British Council and I think this is certainly one of the ways forward for teachers in the UK to learn how to blog and podcast.

I look forward to seeing how this project develops in the future.
