After completing my Postgraduate Diploma in languages (Indonesian), I changed my teaching direction to become an Indonesian language teacher.  Previous to this I was teaching mainly ICT from Year 8 to Year 12.  Now, I am teaching a combination of both these subjects, concentrating on teaching Indonesia to Years 7 – 9, and ICT at senior level. I have had the opportunity to study at the Universitas Islam Negri in Malang East Java, as well as being a recipient of the Endeavour Language Teachers Fellowship enabling me to further study Indonesian for 3 weeks in Denpasar, Bali.

Last year, the school where I work introduced iPads to all Year 7 classes, and this year we have become a 1:1 iPad school for all year 7 to 9.  It has been a challenging yet fun experience sourcing out appropriate apps, and how to use the apps to enhance my teaching and my student learning.

Each day, I hope to review a useful app that can be used in the languages classroom.  I hope you find the reviews useful.
