Event Details

 ICT and Languages Event 2018 [ILILC#8]

Following previous very successful events,  [follow this link for happy pictures from last year and scroll to end to see slide show] we're doing it again!

All are invited to attend a free ICT day followed by a Twilight Special 'MFL Show and Tell'!  Come along to a 'hands on' experience of  a wide range of practical ideas and activities in which ICT can support language learning in and outside school, however much or little access you have to equipment and resources.  There will be something for everyone: (all sectors - all ages - all abilities - all languages)  and we especially welcome Primary teachers and  friends from all over the world!  Free refreshments for breaks and lunch thanks to our Sponsor, 'Sanako' and exhibitors. We will be accommodated in 2 computer rooms (each fitted with 34 computers with access to a wide range of software) and  classrooms with wifi access. 


We invite delegates to contribute as 'presenters', whether leading or contributing to longer sessions during the day, or shorter spots during the Twilight 'show and tell'.  Please use this Google form to offer sessions, or contact Helen Myers or Joe Dale separately by mail preferably by the end of March.

Joe Dale will lead an opening plenary entitled 'Quick Wins with technology in the languages' classroom, and is also offering two further sessions as options within the parallel sesison programme:

  1. Using Apple Clips, animation and filmmaking in the languages classroom
  2. Magic Animation in IoS 11 + other spell-binding ideas.  How to use the magic move animation in Keynote to create effective nultimedia outcomes for reinforcing language learning.  (Includes how to record using screen recording IoS and how to turn it into a gif.)

We will add details of other contributors and session titles as they are confirmed. 

We have several exhibitors whose products you can browse in the breaks.  

Book as soon as you can! 
Places are limited to 100.  To help us  to prepare the programme and the refreshments, we need to know in advance if you are coming.  We are asking people to pay £25, and this will be refunded in full if you attend or if you let us know at least 5 days prior to the event that you cannot come.  [We hope that this will mean that places and food are not wasted].  Sorry, but we do not process invoices.  If it is impossible for you to pay by credit card, please send a cheque payable to 'ALL London Branch' to Helen Myers, The Ashcombe School, Ashcombe Road, Dorking, RH4 1LY, to reach this address by Tuesday 17th April.  The cheque will be returned to you at the event.

The rationale for our low pricing is that we need to be committing in advance to the venue and refreshments, so it is not possibe to issue a refund other than if you attend or let us know a week in advance that you cannot attend.

Venue: The Ashcombe School Bradley building, is very easy to get to, and you do not have to go via London.  If coming by car, follow signs to Main Entrance.  If walking from station, walk up Ashcombe Road and follow signs from the Bradley Building entrance (the first entrance).. If coming by car, please access the school via the Croft Avenue entrance (directly off the A24, opposite Dorking station) and park on the signed court area.

Routes and approx journey times:
50 minutes on a stopping train from Waterloo or Victoria - then 3 minutes' walk from the station
25 minutes from Gatwick (direct train route)
Direct trains from Guildford (20 minutes)  and Reading (1 hour) (so avoiding need to go via London)10 minutes from M25 Junction 9 turn off for Leatherhead (Saturday less busy!)  Lots of free parking at school. 

Accommodation: There is a variety of accommodation available nearby, for example The Travelodge (one star), the Mercure, White Horse (three star) and The Linclon Arms which is across the road from the school. There are links to accommodation on the Dorking Tourist site here.  Groups may find it cheaper to book with Airnb or House Trip .  As the school is immediately opposite Dorking main station and Dorking Deepdene, it would be easy to commute from stations on the same line e.g. Leatherhead, Reigate, Redhill, Guildford. If you would like to 'advertise' for a room mate or car share, feel free to use this document.

ALL London

We are the London branch of the national  Association for Language Learning. (ALL)  See our website for full details and join the Yahoo mflresources group which we moderate for on-going discussion and sharing.

We organise regular London-based events throughout the year for local members to encourage close and sustainable networking between  people.  We are inclusive!  Although we strongly encourage people to join ALL which supports work done at a national level,  our events are open to all those who care about language learning, and we love it when people join us from other parts of the country (or the world!)

Our local events  complement events organised at a national level.   An enthusiastic and lively committee plans the  events  as shown by the online diary.  Please  contact us for further information in any way which suits you best.
