Costs $149 but could be worth it if an institution purchases or if you create a lot of iBooks. Interesting to add when creating iBooks.

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.

Dated, Embarrassing & Cringeworthy Early Webpage

 

It's not the DEVICE it's the DECISION of the teen that makes a difference! I've been preaching internet safety (now awareness) since 97 and this is one of my most embarrassing early webpages created in 2000 first for Maryland Public Television & later updated for the Horizon Foundation.

There are a LOT of cringeworthy Don'ts there that I don't believe in anymore! I've come to realize that we have to sometimes let kids make the right (or wrong!) choice so that they can learn the right lesson and that the world is NOT filtered we've gotta teach ethics! IN ALL Things not just technology!

 

Or as I said in 2000: "The most effective, reliable, Internet Safety Filter is an Involved, Informed, and Aware Parent  and an Educated and Ethical Kid."*
