iPads in French Classes - increasing the Dialogue

Two of the teachers in our TLLP wanted to get their French students using the iPads to talk more. If any French teachers are reading this, you know how difficult it can be to get students, especially Gr 9 Applied French students, speaking in French! Please see their final reflections on the work their did this semester having iPads in their classrooms and about what they want to explore next. One teacher was using the provincial e-Learning platform extensively as well which was pretty…See More

a-ha TLLP Moments

So we as teachers often overthink things. Well, it is 5:30 am and I am awake thinking about the TLLP budget and had an a-ha moment. SAMR. Substitution. Augmentation. Modification. Redefinition. This is the theoretical framework which we have applied to integrating iPads into our educational practice for this project. My a-ha moment came from discovering what truly redefines my practice. I kept thinking big picture: what instructional methodology and practices can I use as a teacher to redefine…See More
