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.

Our tech talk interview for this episode is with Daren White who explains many useful ways language teachers can use Google tools in the classroom including giving feedback with gifs with Keep and Docs, creating One Stop Animation with Slides, enabling Voice Typing in Docs to create dictations, running Auto translate with Sheets and using the Explore feature in Docs and Sheets.
