Are you on the bridge

  1. 1. Are you on the bridge?If not, get on it to ensure 21st Centuryreadiness for ALL your students.
  2. 2. A few options to get on the bridge!
  3. 3. The cost of language learning hasbeen revolutionized by the i-Pad
  4. 4. WHAT’S OUT?Authoritative teachersTeaching the way we were taughtComplaining about cutbacks and lack of fundingTeacher centered lessons where the teacher “imparts” all knowledge upon studentsStudents as consumers of knowledge
  5. 5. WHAT’S IN? Caring teachers who incorporate differentiated learning strategies in the classroom to reach all learners. Teaching the way students learn. Demonstrating this with accommodations sometimes done on the spot. Using frameworks, benchmarks and other asset- based approaches to assessment Individualized, customizable, learner-centered approaches Tech-savvy teachers who use technology in the classroom Students using technology tools for learning Teachers are facilitators and coaches Students are producers of knowledge
  6. 6. The i-Pad used as a language teacher toolbox
  7. 7. Educational i-Pad apps for theElementary School Spanish Teacher Babblemania- This app teaches young learners the fruits and vegetables in Spanish. Once they have learned them they will make a smoothie and a pot of soup. Repetition reinforces the vocabulary and it’s very entertaining for the children.
  8. 8. Video of students learning onthe i-Pad during Spanish class Insert video- students working on the babble mania website.
  9. 9. Animals, colors, numbersNiños bilingue- This app teaches young learners theanimals, colors and numbers. It presents the vocabulary inEnglish and in Spanish providing repetition. The children enjoychoosing and dragging the correct animals.
  10. 10. ABC Practice- Recognizing theletters in spanish Igualar letras- A letter matching game. The student hears the letter and needs to uncover the cards until all letters are matched. Each section of the game a cute squirrel “takes off,” at the end many balloons go up with the letters written on them. Students can review the alphabet before playing the game.
  11. 11. Spelling words in Spanish Leo Spanish spelling- A spelling game. The student hears a letter and needs to choose and drag the correct letter (one at a time) until he has un-jumbled the letters to form a word. Once the student has spelled a word, he gets to “color” a section of the picture of a clown until he has spelled out all the words and colored the entire face of the clown.
  12. 12. Practice correct pronunciation inSpanish and record your voice Learn Spanish for Kids – Ottercall español - A pronunciation game. The student hears a word in Spanish and needs to record his voice saying the word correctly. They are graded correct/incorrect. While this is precious and the students love that they can record their voice, it is very sensitive and sometimes the student is graded incorrect, while he might be correct. Also, some words are in “Spanglish” so make sure you review the vocab. first. If offers many themes: animals, school, beach, bedroom, breakfast, clothing, fast food, fruits, holiday, music, kitchen, appliances, seasons, spo rts, tools, vehicles, veggies, weather.
  13. 13. Fun educational games in multiplelanguages- Higher elementarylevel and above Learn Spanish – Mind Snacks- Provides a good foundation and the repetition helps make the vocab “stick.” I would recommend it to upper elementary students and above. Some of the games speed up as you get to the more advanced stages, therefore they are too challenging for lower elementary students. Reviews a wide range of vocabulary. Provides incentives with points and tokens. Allows you to share results on facebook. Available in multiple languages.
