Movenote edu Our mobile (iOS and Android) apps are now free! Movenote has decided to change the price of our mobile apps back to its original free status. We got a lot of feedback from teachers of the difficulties of having to pay for the movenote app and how it made movenote a lot more difficult to implement in the classroom. For this reason we went back to free, and there we are to stay. We want movenote to be available easily to as many people as possible, with all devices possible! In the future movenote will publish new features that will be available to all users at a small cost.

Flashcards in the Classroom: Ten Lesson Ideas The other day, I was preparing a lesson with an intermediate group of young learners and getting my flashcards printed and laminated. However, when chatting to some other teachers in the staffroom, with myself behind the laminating machine, there was a brief comment that flashcards are more suited for beginner or elementary learners and more appropriate for young learners. Flashcards are really good but more suited for young learners or really low levels of students. Unfortunately, I really have to disagree with this sentiment as I have used flashcards with many different levels as well as ages of learners. With this post, I really would like to push the boundaries of what is considered suitable for learners and offer teachers practical ideas on how they are able to incorporate flashcards into lessons with more than just young learners or beginner/elementary classes.
