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...

Dear colleagues and friends,

I was just wondering if you had some questionnaire/checklist to obtain data on foreign language teachers' perceptions on the use of Web2.0 tools. I would like to collect data on this topic. The results will be shared here, of course.

Many thanks for your assistance and cooperation in advance.

Will you attend ISTE 2010 in Denver in the last week of June? If so, please plan to attend a "Birds of a Feather" session on June 28 at the end of the day. The topic is "Technology en espanol" and the idea is that people attending can share resources, ideas, projects, etc. that they are using. ISTE asked me to be the moderator. (I did the same thing last year and we had a great group sharing interesting sites and ideas.)
On the ISTE conference Ning there is a discussion for this topic and you can post your ideas whether or not you can attend. Gracias! Rita

Hello. I just joined this goup a few minutes ago. I wanted to mention that I started a group called "Foreign Language in High School" if anyone is interested. It's just another way to share with other language teachers.

I currently use WizIQ once a week and hold an online help session for all Sp2 students in my school. If you have not checked this out, it is a good way to work with students outside of school. www.wiziq.com

Hello all, I just stumbled upon this site. I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere on this Ning, but hopefully it's new for a few of you... http://toolsforschools.wikispaces.com/ The collaboration, audio, and video sites are all pretty good...

To learn more about Google video chat, here is a link.

I have used Google video chat as an alternative to Skype. Your students would need to have a gmail account. It is so easy to use because rather than having to initiate a call in Skype, you will see who is available for a video chat whenever you login to your gmail account. The new gmail buzz feature also encourages instant communication. In fact, you may have to think about communication extending beyond your control with the ease of these Google tools.

I use it daily though mostly to make parental phone calls. It is free for Skype to Skype users so if you wanted to set up some "group" meetings with students in a lab you could. Students can send pictures, documents, use web cams, etc. very easily and there is instant messaging as well. In an ideal world you would be able to set up "pen pals" with another school. Hope this helps!

Is anyone familiar with Skype? I've heard it via secondary sources that language teachers found it useful in the classroom, but I haven't heard anything from someone who has personally used it.

Am sure you all may know this already but just in case---there is a "Spanish teacher" group on Facebook that is posting discussions and news to view. From time to time I also post this site to my students as they are interested in entertainment. peopleenespanol.com
