Our speaker was Bronwyn Desjardins, an Educational Technology Coach at St Stithians Girls’ Preparatory in Johannesburg.

The webinar description
In this webinar, Bronwyn showed us how to use numerous iPad applications to assist with teaching additional languages. These included Book Creator, Futaba, Spell Board, QR Codes and others. She drew from her years of experience as an EFAL and French Additional Language teacher to provide time-saving examples of how to effectively integrate technology into teaching additional languages. These tips help make language learning personal, exciting and effective.
