MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Originally trained as a Secondary MFL teacher, I taught for 9 years in two challenging comprehensives, holding positions of responsibility before moving into the Primary sector in 2003. I now have a variety of roles; teaching Spanish in two local schools, working with the Local Authority as a Language Coach to support schools in implementing the KS2 MFL Framework, promoting eTwinning as an eTwinning Ambassador for the British Council and speaking at local, regional and national conferences on PMFL and ICT. I have also recently been made an ADE.
I write a blog called ¡Vámonos!, predominantly on the subject of teaching and learning Primary Languages in the 21st century, on which I reflect on my own classroom practice, report on conferences I’ve attended and also post resources and ideas - particularly ones that include technology as a tool to enhance and increase learning and motivation.
Through eTwinning I gained an insight into the amazing potential of ICT, and over the last three years have become increasingly convinced that technology should be used to enhance education, and not for the sake of it, and see ICT tools such as Voicethread, wikis, Voki, Twitter and Animoto as invaluable tools that allow for creative approaches to establish cross curricular links.
