Websites, Recources, Videos, and Podcasts

Websites and Recources

The following websites can be useful in any Spanish classroom at any age. They can all be used to engage students in a 1 to 1 school of in a classroom that has limited technology access. All of these tools can be used to engage students of every learning type. Vamos a ayudar estudiantes con la exprecion de sus pensamientos.

Art in the Classroom

1. bomomo

This is a website to help students express there artistic side. Art and culture are directly related to one another. Having students recreate art, or having them interpret what they see can help them connect to art and culture.

5. Sound Cloud

Not only makes sound look good, it makes it social. Record on the fly or upload something you made before and see how the shape of your sound starts a conversation. Your sounds are free to go anywhere on the web. Share privately to your family, publish to social networks or embed your sounds on your site.

6. Doodle

This can come in handy when creating events in the classroom and to inform the parents of fun and specific dates. This is also a great way to communicate and have parent involvement and communication between the two.

10. Cool Tools For School Website

The following wiki is basically the bible of apps for teachers, and anyone with technology in their life.

Many of the websites I have mentioned above are included in this lovely site and many of them I will use in my future classroom to continue the engagement of students.
