The MFL Twitterati is a dynamic grassroots group of language teachers, consultants and associations who love to share ideas, resources, useful links and a bit of banter with each other on a daily basis over Twitter. In addition to the beautiful blend of useful and supportive tweets, both personal and professional, the indefatigable group also regularly take part in MFL Flashmeetings, recorded video conferencing sessions where we discuss the latest developments in language teaching then post the recording for all to dip into. Check out the latest one where we look ahead to the challenges (and solutions) of 2013.
There is also The MFL Times generated automatically from the links in the tweets of those who follow the account MFLTimes. Each edition of the e-magazine, available via subscription or through the archives, includes language-related stories, videos, images and links all in the one place. It's also available to non-Twitter users, and acts as a great pull for new members of the community.
The latest initiative is to use the cloud storage service Dropbox to create shared folders (organised by language) which any of its invited users can upload to. This collaborative internet memory stick allows us to share resources conveniently and quickly, a real inspiration and time saver for busy teachers.
