    Froggies - the concept
    Following an inspirational presentation by Ewan McIntosh (http://edu.blogs.com) from MFLE (Modern Foreign Languages Environment) to our PGDE class (Moray House-Edinburgh), I proceeded to set up wikipages for my future pupils.
    The idea is to use wikipages as a forum for secondary schools pupils learning French, with the teacher acting as a moderator. I am not to sure yet how it is going to work out. If I don't try, I will never know - So let's jump!
    As part of the PGDE course, I am currently planning a unit of work for an imaginary S5 class. I tried to integrate some notion of taking responsbility for own learning and peer assessment. The idea is as follows. The pupils take notes of vocabulary (words/verbs/expressions) during the class without any prompt from the teacher. At the end of the lesson, two volunteers are chosen for entering the vocabulary on their year's wikipage. Then kicks in the peer assessment. The other pupils are asked to check the entries and correct them. This could be used as part of homework.
    27/05/06 - I got a good feedback on my unit of work, so I am happy to share it as it includes the use of wiki with an S5 class - Unit of work

    Froggies est là pour vous aider à voir, entendre et parler français!
    Go to tongue twisters: you can see the text, you can hear the text and you may want to have a go at saying the text yourself!
    Why so many froggies in the pond?
    I have set up froggies1, froggies2, froggies3, froggies4, froggies5 and froggies6, so that the Wikipages could be used as an online resource shared by all pupils in the same year. They can all benefit from each others' experience. And this might be the end of "I don't know, I was not there Miss". Absent pupils may be able to catch up in some ways with the help of the wikipages.
    Where do the froggies come from? {http://us.a2.yahoofs.com/groups/g_17496187/.HomePage/__sr_/94fd.jpg?grjZBmEBn8HDEATp}
    minifroggies
    Thinking of my own children (currently 6 and 8). I thought there might me a need for the minifroggies out there to have a page.
    The minifroggies might be my children, they might be children from future primary schools I might be teaching in, when they have to create something as a group.
    On minifroggies you can hear two minifroggies trying their best at French, or is it a "toadcast"?
    What happens when the froggies leave the pond?
    When they leave the environment of "froggies", the little ones become superfroggies and can still contribute to that wonderfull world of learning French through superfroggies, because you never stop learning! I will only mention the example of "baladodiffusion", French for podcast, which I came across for the first time last week on the France Inter website (http://www.radiofrance.fr/chaines/france-inter01/direct).
    Castlebrae
    This is my last school placement during this PGDE year (2005/2006) and I had a great time getting the children to work on putting together radio broadcasts. The Castlebrae space gives a good example of what can be achieved over a very small period of time. We also have versions of the braodcasts with great music, but due to royalties issues they are for our private use only and cannot be posted.
    With more time and preparation, the children should easily be able to use the recording software themselves (a lot more convenient than the pale units in my opinion!)
    To see the result of their work on the Internet has been a high motivator for the pupils.
    This kind of work could be a project performed with the help of language assistants.

    From Ewan - GREAT poem! It describes what it's all about in.... in six lines. I'll be using that in the next conference I do. Thanks, Tamil.
    So to share it lets wikipage it!

    Linda
    J'aime bien la façon que vous avez fait ça. Je vais faire des liens du MFLE à vos pages de ressources. Je pense que les élèves vont aimer contribuer au learning log que vous avez commencé. Il va falloir, quand même, les aider à faire ceci. Je pense pas que les élèves ont tous pris l'habitude en aucune matière. Nice one!

    J'ai suivi ton exemple et j'ai crée un wiki pour le département de langues de Castlebrae. Mais juste pour les profs, celui des eleves, la prof d'informatique s'en occupe.
