has been taking the MFL world by storm recently. Want to know more?
Triptico is a suite of web-based tools designed for use with an IWB by David Riley, a teacher from the North-East of England.
The app comprises a range of over 20 tools, ranging from timers to class selectors, from scoring devices to presentation and game formats. A brief guide to some of the features can be viewed here. David is adding resources to the app at regular intervals, and is very keen to collaborate with users of the tools in order to adapt and improve them. He is @David_Triptico on Twitter, and is well worth a follow! He also blogs regularly here with explanations of new tools, and suggestions on how to use them in creative ways.
More and more MFL teachers are turning to Triptico as a way to inject creativity, customisability and interactivity into the learning and teaching in their lessons. Once created, the resources (simple .txt documents) are easily shared between colleagues within departments but also from school to school.
David has recently added an upgraded version – Triptico Plus – with added functionality, including the ability to save resources to the Triptico Cloud. This version costs £15, although again, special reductions are available for multiple or networked subscriptions. See here for further information.
