Episode 5 of the #mfltwitterati podcast is jam-packed full of amazing ideas around the use of mnemonics in the languages classroom. We also hear about the recent #mfltwitterati conference and forthcoming Badge Summit and explore how Wakelet could be a useful tool for collecting resources, enabling collaboration and sharing podcasts with a cool Spotify hack! Noah champions the #HighlightREAL hashtag and I give the new Real Lives exam a nice plug too as well as describe the impact that little changes to our software can have on our daily lives.
