Wii want to play
Last December, a group of 12 French students from Year 9 took part in an exciting language and technology project with pupils at Dulwich College. The event was one of many organised by teachers and pupils in the Southwark Schools Learning Project (SSLP). The aim was to pilot different ways of making language-learning accessible via the types of technology used by young people nowadays: computers, DS consoles, Playstation, Wii etc. In mixed teams of four, the groups completed a carrousel of activities in French, such as creating a theme park, designing and describing a Mii, racing in Mario Cart or completing a mission in Medal of Honour. The winning team each received an HMV gift card worth £10. Tout le monde s’est bien amusé!
