Welcome to everyone!

It is my hope that this will be common sharing ground for Spanish teachers interested in a mindful teaching practice, where reflection and exploration of new technology tools support a real world connection to the rich tapestry of Spanish-speaking peoples and cultures.

May you find like-minded educators here...

Socrative is an up and coming ed tech company with a great FREE web-based software offering that is like a clicker response system for laptops and/or phones. Their softward supports formative assessment practices in an engaging format for students. They had their beginning with Harvard's Graduate School of Education so I will keep an eye out for further developments from them, as they are focused on meeting the needs of the educational market.

I just discovered a great new free site that allows you to create video questionaires or conduct video interviews.  My school is a 1:1, that is, every student has a laptop with a webcam.  We have used Skype for virtual exchanges but sometimes have networking issues resulting in dropped audio or dropped calls.  With this new site, you write up a series of questions.  Then, you can send the questions to another person who will be prompted to record their video responses by webcam.  You can create a private interview that is not accessible to the public and manage the video files very easily.  You can even share the video clip with others via email or download the video responses as an MP4 file.  I can see so many possible uses for this great new tool.  I encourage you to check it out: Intervue
