IX Jornades de Llengües Estrangeres, Salou

Handout from the talk "Creating Curiosity in the Classroom". Wonderful, energetic audience and extremely patient with all the technical (and non-technical) 'glitches' (remote control didn't work, unplugged the projector, couldn't get microphone headset to fit, I almost wiped out)....what a session!

Here are some links that might come in handy:

Article: Curiosity: The Fuel for Development

Thanks to the organisers, Montse, JJ and the rest of the team!

More information on the event can be found on the Oxford Blog

Don't forget to check out the Oxford Primary Magazine :)

This week I visited an amazing little village in Extremadura called Granadilla. Students from IES around Spain and reconstructing the village which was 'abandoned' years ago. Beautiful spot and interesting project. I talked to one of the teachers and one of the students and both said that the experience was very rewearding. For more information on the project CLICK
