#ililc4 Show and Tell

End of Day 1 and we all came to the Show and Tell at Highfield House armed with at least 1000 calories each as Zena has suggested we bring snacks so we took her at her word (and then some) An excellent night was had by all. Here are my scribbled notes:

Isabelle Jones @icpjones  "Any excuse for a song!"
iPod roulette in the car driving to work, Isabelle has a list of questions to decide if she will the song with a class or not 

Helen Myers talked about ALL webinar and events 

Lisa Stevens
Stamp clap click activity using one two three in the language between partners (A says 1, B says 2, A says 3, B says 1, etc)  then they start replacing the numbers little by little with a stamp for 1, then a clap for 2 and finally a click for 3. A great brain gym activity and I don't think @missmclachan and I were the only two who struggled....

Rachel Smith The 20 day challenge 
Rachel watched Matt Cutte Try something new for 30 days TED talk video 
Talked to pupils about dead time in the day (bus, etc) 
What could we do for 10 mins every day? Duolingo etc.

Twitter: 5 words a day, video, retweets, Peppa Pig 
The idea is that doing something for that length of time is habit-forming
