About the Class

In the foreign language classroom, one of the goals is to improve
student speaking ability and give them opportunities to communicate in the target language. In this presentation activities to promote
inter-student communication, using the PoodLL set of add-ons for
Moodle, will be introduced. The presenter teaches English conversation to high school students in Japan, and is the developer of the PoodLL
add ons. He believes good teachers should get out of the way, but have to create a framework in which that can work. He will spend a little time introducing PoodLL at the beginning of the presentation.

|Some interesting uses for PoodLL on Moodle to use with your classes. For those of you who were unable to attend class, I recommend watching the recorded session :)

This session was a really great experience. Got a lot of inspirations.

I wonder how to set up and administer the wonderful pairwork widget we've been using. I could not find any information on the PoodLL website...
