Apps for Spanish 10
Maria's top 5 apps
Gadget no. 5: Study Blue
For example, students can be given a category for vocabulary and complete 10-20 flashcards. They can also join other students to practice together.
Gadget No. 4: Videolicious
For example, students can work in small groups to create a sketch, a song, or a dialogue using conversational elements learned in class (e.g., greetings, giving directions, etc.)
Gadget No. 3: Fluent U
Students can choose a video from a list, work with groups or individually to come up with words related to a category (e.g.: look, define and give the context for words related to professions and interests).
Gadget No. 2: Subtext
Subtext is a great app to accompany readings. While it's used mostly in English, teachers can import any PDF or e-book and highlight passages, start discussions, create groups, add external links or make their own annotations.
This would be a great opportunity for advanced students who can follow discussions based on a Spanish short story, for example.
Gadget No. 1: Learn Spanish Phrasebook
Students can use this app during class to quickly search up for words while listening to audio and videos in the class.
