    I haven't been on here for quite a while. People may be familiar with my previous IT-based tools for MFL teachers: TaskMagic and Textivate. (Or they may not...)

    Well, I invite you to check out my latest project: TeachVid

    It's a platform for exploiting short videos and their transcripts. Think EdPuzzle meets LyricsTraining meets Textivate. It works on multiple levels to gets students engaged with the video content, combining listening / dictation-like activities with translation and text reconstruction, and providing students with multiple written and aural repetitions of the language of the video.

    It has a free access level which:
    • Provides full access to the many "featured" resources (including interactive player, interactive activities, printable PDFs)
    • Allows you to set up real-time LIVE competitions based on the many "featured" resources
    • Allows you to create up to 5 resources of your own
    (Subscribers get to set up classrooms, set assignments, and lots of other extras)

    Here's the website: https://www.teachvid.com

    Scroll down that page and try one of the "featured" resources listed on the home page, or search via the "Resources" menu option. (Featured resources, of which there are many, can be identified by a gold star.)

    Here's an example French resource. It is based on *that* Macron anti-bullying speech from a couple of weeks ago. Great for (higher) GCSE French :)

    Here's the link: https://www.teachvid.com/resource/pw6qNXLYTqE75Dutlh9f

    (Follow the link above and click on "Open resource" to see the interactive player. From there you can also access the interactive activities. There are printable PDFs on the page too.)

    I've used some of your resources in the past and benefited, as have the kids. I'll check this out. Thanks. :)

    BTW a question that gets asked quite often is "Is TeachVid free?"

    So in this blogpost (link below) I've listed all of the things that you can do and access with TeachVid for FREE!

    (And then in the second part, it examines the extra features that users can unlock by subscribing...)
