Hi everybody
just a reminder that this month's Xerte Friday session takes place on Friday 25th of November at 1300 GMT and is themed around teaching languages using Xerte online toolkits.

As always there will be a mixture of links to sample learning objects, discussion of pedagogical approaches and opportunities to see some of the templates in action.

To take part, grab a pair of headphones for your computer, load a browser and go to www.instantpresenter.com/techdisonline104 a few minutes before the starting time. You can test your system will work with our conferencing tool by clicking on the test link - http://www.instantpresenter.com/systemtest    (takes just a few 30 seconds).

More information and links to all the previous sessions can be found at http://www.jisctechdis.ac.uk/techdis/pages/detail/online_resources/Xerte_online_training_sessions_2011

Please forward this information to your language teacher colleagues to have a look at how the free Xerte Online Toolkits can reduce marking load and make online learning interactive and inclusive. Although the session will focus on modern languages the techniques are equally applicable to teaching English as a foreign language.
