Michael did go to the IATEFL conference


  1. It's a genuine creative way of saying it.

  2. Thank you, Mouna. I made this screencast as a "THANK YOU" to Russell Stannard, who made it possible for me to attend the IATEFL conference in Glasgow this year through winning his scholarship. But I guess, you have already figured it out.
    However, the other great thing about this screencast is that it is an example of how SNAGit can be used to develop speaking skills outside the classroom walls and at the same time it is a lot of fun.
    I'm planning to write a separate post on a lesson framework that can be used with this aim in mind for any level. Coming soon :)

  3. You are ssssoooooooo funny!!! I just LOVE you so much! Where can I see you again??????? Évi

  4. Hi Éva,
    Thank you for your lovely words, they really mean a lot to me. I am now planning to hand in a speaker promosal for the HU-IATEFL conference that will take place in Eger in October this year. But prior to that I'll be doing lots of bits and bobs, wherever I'm invited. At the moment I'm touring the country teaching demonstration lessons where with the local children, teachers sitting at the back of the room and observing the lessson (grades 1 to 8). Then we discuss the lesson, and have a workshop on a topic related to the type of lesson taught. (e.g. If the aim of the lesson was to develop speaking skills, the workshop will deal with further ideas on how to do this at that particular age-group). OUP invites me to do these training afternoons, and I love the opportunity of working with teachers around the whole country so closely, really getting to the heart of teaching: teaching their own classes. The most current one where I'm going is Aba on Monday morning, 16th April. You are welcome, if you can make it. Do let me know if you would like to come and we'll see if we can organise something.
    There are lots of other plans for teacher training in line too, and I will post these on the sidebar of this blog under "Talks, worskhops, TT courses", so you'll be able to see it from there. I'm also planning to work on the summer OUP TT course and the conference at the end of August, but I haven't got the dates for it yet.
    As for this video screencast, I'm glad you like it. I think it's time to say a little bit more about it, so my next post will be on how we use this phenomenal tool to develop speaking skills and have tremendous fun at the same time :)
    Hope to see you soon, Évi!

  5. Watched it again! Still love it!
    I haven't yet found out what to use and how!
    I'm hoping you know which Évi am I but it doesn't really matter
    since TAT TVAM ASZI
    Love you

    2. I do know which Évi you are :-) One of the ways you can use screencapture tools such as Jing or Snagit, is to make "HOW TO" help videos for parents,l teachers, family members, whoever needs help on the net. For example: "How to register for a webinar" - see here:
