We would LOVE it if every teacher had a Languages faculty at their school, to share ideas/resources and collaboratively plan and problem solve, but unfortunately most of us teach in isolation – as the only language teacher at our school, or the only teacher of our particular language.
That's why we've created the Languages NSW (7-12) group on Yammer – our virtual staffroom. We currently have almost 300 language teachers as part of this virtual faculty, seeking and finding advice on areas such as:
- If the new syllabuses require all tasks to be authentic, what's the place of yearly examinations?
- What professional learning is currently available?
- How do organise a trip interstate with students?
- How do I approach subject selection night at my school?
Never used Yammer before? That's ok - just download our easy "how-to" guide and you're just a couple of clicks away from having colleagues at our fingertips.
