NZALT Webinars 

We will be running two Webinars on How to create your own Google Site on Tuesday 30 November and Thursday 2 December from 3.45pm to 5pm.
These webinars will give teachers an opportunity to find out why to use Google Site and how to create their own for resources sharing and collaboration in their classroom. The webinars are open to teachers who are new to Google Site as well as teachers who are already familiar with it but need a guiding hand in developing their own Sites. Both Webinars will be run by Madlen and Sue Pommarede.
If you want to register or have further requests, contact Madlen Kunath.

The Zoom link for this Webinar is as follows:
Meeting ID: 819 2380 6929
Passcode: 932233

There will be two further Webinars on Tuesday 7 and Thursday 9 December. These will focus on Padlet - A Follow-up to Creating Virtual Field Trips and Treasure Hunts using Padlet and Google Earth (repeat from September 16).
This Webinar is a repeat session and will be an opportunity for those teachers who participated in the Padlet webinars in September to progress and share their knowledge of using Padlet and Google Earth to create virtual field trips and treasure hunts. Please bring along your own creations, or resources if you'd like to start creating a new Padlet or Google Earth Virtual Field Trip.
The Zoom link for these webinars will be the same as given above.

If you need further support in Term 4 or have suggestions for other Webinar topics for 2022, please email Madlen Kunath who is our Online PLD Co-ordinator.

Teachers of any language, as well as both primary and secondary, are most welcome to join any of these Webinars. It is an excellent opportunity to meet other language teachers, share strategies, and expertise.

For those teachers who are still teaching online, don't forget to look at the resources which were shared in previous Webinars. These are available on the following Google site: Integrating e-tools into the language classroom. You can also find tips, resources, and tools for online teaching as well as for a blended language teaching situation.
