If you want to find some excellent teaching ideas on using technology in the classroom then it’s worth your while visiting Nik Peachey’s blog Learning technology teacher development.

One of his postings tells us all about Gifup, a site that allows to you make your own photo slide shows. As usual, Nik suggests some useful ways to use Gifup in class and highlights the advantages and disadvantages.

You could create a photo slideshow to use with a MEC vocabulary activity. For example if you’re using the MEC Vocabulary Activity Clothes you could find lots of pictures of clothes, use Gifup to create a slideshow and ask learners to shout out the correct names as a follow-up activity.
