Miss Hopkins’ students’ one-stop-shop

First Post

Well today I finally finished authoring my toolkit on “Podcasting in MFL” for the Specialist Schools Trust.  It’s been a steep learning curve and a lot of work but i’m quite pleased with the result and am looking forward to delivering it at the Tutor training in November.  I hope it’s well received and that the teachers it eventually reaches will be excited by the incredible possibilities podcasting holds for Languages learning.  It’s always hard to get teachers on board when it comes to new technologies but I think that if you make the process as simple and quick to use as possible they can get great results without too many headaches.  We shall see… Wouldn’t it be nice to wave a magic wand and make it all easy!

  1. I’m sure they’ll love it. Look forward to meeting you in November.

    Best wishes


    P.S I’ve just published a very simple podcast designed to help my pupils with their vocabulary. This is the link: I think there may be too much talking at the beginning. I’d be interested in your views. I got the idea from Adam Sutcliffe’s blog

  2. I hope we see more posts on your discoveries as you learn more about podcasting with students. If you do post here there will always be help on hand if you hit a barrier 😉

  3. Can I borrow that wand after you are finished?

    Hope the first steps are as smooth as they can be!
