Free Technology for Teachers: Widgets To Consider Adding To Your Classroom Blog

Maria Wilbar‘s insight:

These apps can be especially useful in the second language classroom, for  having students practice their oral skills. With SpeakPike, students can leave voice comments for their classmates, which would allow for an interactive conversation among them –something like: “Leave a voice comment and answer to the ones that your classmates have left for you”–sort of assignment.

La tecnología en mis clases: LTMOOC 4: Assessing language skills using technology

See on Scoop.itTechnology in the Teaching of Second Languages

Maria Wilbar‘s insight:

Una muy buena actividad para el aula. Buena utilización de la tecnología para que los estudiantes se involucren en una actividad motivadora. La actividad está diseñada para alumnos de un nivel inicial de español, sin embargo se presta para modificarla para otros niveles. Una aclaración: Tokbox ya no existe. Pero hay una herramienta aún mejor que se llama Talk Abroad www.talkabroad.com
