Workshop: “Let me tell you a story, let me tell you in my language”

MLTAWA is excited to announce a workshop for the “Let me tell you a story” competition for background language speakers.

Since the majority of last year’s entries were ebook entries, the focus of the workshops will be on entering the competition using the Book Creator app for iPads. Book Creator was the most popular app used last year and perhaps the easiest for even young children to use. Handouts from last year’s film workshop will be available for those who wish create a short film instead.

Even if you have no plans to enter the competition, please come along to learn about the possibilities of ebooks as a creative tool for your Languages classroom and to network with colleagues. Light snacks and coffee/tea provided.

The workshop will cover:

  • How to use the “Book Creator” app for iPads or Chrome and upload the entries for the competition
  • The general requirements of the competition
  • General copyright issues to keep in mind while entering the competition – how to create original images to avoid any potential breeches, where to find Creative Commons licensed images and how to acknowledge work belonging to others

Times:             Thursday 24 May    or     Monday 28 May

Time:               4pm – 6pm

Place:              Catholic Education Western Australia, 50 Ruislip St, West Leederville (Room G8)

(Plenty of free parking at the back of the building)

Please bring:   iPad with BookCreator downloaded (BookCreator One is free) or a device with Chrome downloaded

    Hi Mariel,

    I am interested in “Let me tell you a story” and would like to learn about it, but cannot make it on 24 or 28 May. Is there any chance you can repeat the workshop later (in June or even July holidays)?

    Best regards,
