  10. 10. #9 - In MFL lessons• Use Mario Kart to practise directional vocabulary. Children can direct the driver by shouting out instructions, eg. "gauche!" (left!) "droite!" (right!). Extend by introducing additional vocab, eg. "plus vite" (faster!) "ralentis!" (slow down!).• Use the Mii editor to teach and practise physical descriptions. (see tip #7).• For more advanced students (more-able GCSE & A Level), use My French Coach/My Spanish Coach to independently learn new vocabulary. @simcloughlin

  13. 13. #12 Use the remote as an interactive WhiteboardIn 2009 there was an episode of TED Talks that demonstrated the use of a Wiiremote as an interactive white board. Since that time other software developershave improved the concept and have developed hardware for this as aneducational solution at the fraction of the cost of a traditional interactive whiteboard.We are currently doing a demo of one from http://www.irgreat.com. Do a searchfor a local reseller or a provider in your area. @hairynomas & @nort2h
