A good idea for ESOL students. 

Shannon Everett's curator insight, November 5, 2013 12:04 PM

Loogla is in Beta testing, but it's an interesting concept.  They believe that in order to learn a language, students need to be immersed in a language all the time.  Their program incorporates activities into regular webpages the user would normally be visiting to help them pick up the language faster.  I like this because it ensures that students are constantly learning bit by bit to make the new language stick, and to improve.  This would help me with my Spanish journey because I like that it is incorporated into the user's every day life.

Two Great Tools for Creating Interactive Timelines ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Great Tools for Creating Interactive Timelines ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st century Special Education | Scoop.it
n today’s post I am sharing with you two important web tools that you can use with students in class to create interactive timelines. These timelines can include a wide variety of multimedia materials including: text, images, video, maps and many more. And in the case of Silk, there is even the possibility to invite collaborators to help with editing. Also, both of these apps are available for iPad users.

To Help Children Learn Deeply, Ask Them To Explain « Annie Murphy Paul | 21st century Special Education | Scoop.it

"Children are quick to ask “why?” and “how?” when it comes to new things, but research suggests elementary and preschool students learn more when teachers (and, presumably, parents) turn the questions back on them, writes Sarah Sparks in Education Week.

 

Sparks reports on a symposium at the annual Association for Psychological Science research meeting held late last month, where panelists discussed how and when asking students for explanations can best enhance their learning:"

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.
