This free unconference is a mashup of show&tell and teachmeet with a longer talk, resource sharing and lunch thrown in! People interested in language learning in its myriad of forms are welcome to come along and meet likeminded individuals, share what they do in the classroom and come away with some great ideas to enhance language learning.
So why MFLSat+ ? well if Google can do it, then so can we! Building on the success of previous MFL Saturdays, we are going to add in a couple of surprise elements as well as the show and tell...
If you fancy getting up and sharing an idea, a resource, a pedagogical approach or even a song, please sign up below. Your presentation can last anywhere between 30 seconds and 10 minutes, so don't be shy! If you just wish to lurk enthusiastically, that is fine too, just sign up below!

Imagine , if you will, individuals at a table willing to spend 5 minutes to give you hands on experiences of something they are passionate about in terms of teaching and learning. Like a show and tell but with a small group of people (4/5 max). Giving those people the opportunity to see how you use a teaching and learning methodology/software/hardware/resource and giving them the chance to sign up/have a go/ask questions.This is a genius bar and we hope to have as many as possible running concurrently at times during the day so as to maximise coverage and allow people to personalise their learning. If you wish to sign up for this, you will be acting as a facilitator in order to get people engaged with your idea and up and running with it in 5 minutes - think guide on the side rather than sage on the stage! (please feel free to present above and sign up to lead a genius bar session).

Enthusiastic Virtual Lurkers
Would rather be there 'face to face', but looking forward to experimenting in the Adobe Connect room to enable others to join in! I will organise some surprise elements here too. (Like crashing at an unexpected moment probably .....!) Will organise a
party for Fri or Sat night if you want! (Outfits, dances and music provided free with an EDOL theme!) If you want help with setting up an account, contact me and I'll introduce you to
who will set you up!
So upset I can't make it due to school commitments... Really looking forward to lurking online in the afternoon to see what you are all up to!
Lynne Horn Would love to be there but too far to do on a weekend in term time, hope to join in virtually for a while!
so sorry not to make it due to family commitments, will lurk online in between appointments!
so sorry not to be there due to unforseen family commitments. Hope to be able to watch at least some of it.
@IssacGreaves Workload not permitting, msg me if you would like .ppt of findings of the CLIL project I carried out.
There will be a signup sheet at the event for those who wish to go out or drinks and/or dinner on Saturday night. We will meet in the Pitcher and Piano bar on the Newcastle side of the Millenium Bridge from 6:30pm onwards. It is an easy walk from either Gateshead, Central or Monument Metro stations and definitely worth walking to with beautiful views of the river, the Blatic art gallery, the Sage and the bridges!

Travel plans - if you want to share travel with someone, add your travel plans and see if we can share car journeys, get a train together or give lifts from the airport. Cramlington Learning Village has ample parking, is 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from Newcastle Central Station. There are trains and buses from Newcastle Central to Cramlington, then the school is a 10 minute walk from the train station.
