‘Our June upload went live at the beginning of last week and we’ve published lots of fantastic new content, including the first two M Tunes videos. M Tunes is an award-winning multimedia series for children featuring contemporary live-action and animated music videos. Each video is accompanied by a set of interactive games which are designed to practice and improve the skills, vocabulary and grammar presented in the songs. If you’re a Staff Room member (allowing you access to our subscription area), have a look at the Robot Calypso video and you won’t be able to resist singing along – be warned, it’s really catchy!

In the free area of the site we’ve published a reading lesson on Maritime mysteries, a lesson on Glastonbury festival (as part of our Festivals Lesson Share Competition) and launched a new series of TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) tips by Jim Scrivener.

In addition to all our usual content, Staff Room members can also benefit from a 50% discount offer on Blended Learning by Pete Sharma and Barney Barrett. There was a lot of buzz surrounding this book at IATEFL in April and Pete Sharma recently gave a presentation on the subject at our head offices in London. The book contains a wealth of practical ideas and suggestions for ways to use technology to enhance and support your students’ learning. 

Finally, we’ve also put together a short survey to ask our users how they are currently using the site and what they think we can do to improve it. The survey can be taken anonymously but as a thankyou for participating, we’d like to offer all entrants the opportunity to be entered into a draw to win an Olympus SP-310 digital camera worth over £200. All you need to do is enter your email address when prompted.

We always welcome feedback on the site, so if you’d prefer to contact us directly with any inspired ideas or relevant comments and suggestions then don’t hesitate to get in touch – we’d love to hear from you. Send your comments to webeditor@macmillan.com
