Teaching Foreign Languages: A video library of classroom practices

Teaching Foreign Languages:  A video library of classroom practices | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"The Teaching Foreign Languages K-12 video library and professional development guide bring to life the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. Illustrating effective instruction and assessment strategies, the series documents 27 teachers and their students in K-12 classrooms around the country as they study eight languages across a range of competency levels.

Here are some examples of what you'll see:

Third-graders learn about the seasons and German holidays as they practice basic reading skills and build cultural knowledge in their German class.Eighth-graders explore a traditional Cajun folktale and then try their hand at playing zydeco music in their French class.Tenth-, eleventh-, and twelfth-graders in a multilevel Japanese class create a travel brochure and promotional video to attract visitors to Japan.Twelfth-grade students of Spanish become Latin American artists and debate whether to exhibit their work in Spain in light of that country's visa requirements.

Lively and provocative, these videos are designed to inspire thoughtful discussion and reflection and provide the opportunity to learn from the successful practices of other teachers."

Pinterest e ideas para usarlo en el aula

Pinterest e ideas para usarlo en el aula | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Pinterest es un tablón de anuncios en línea, virtual, pero colaborativo, social. Visualmente muy atractivo, te permite crear y organizar todo lo que encuentres en la red para que le pongas chinchetas a todo lo que te interese, de ahí el nombre: pin + interest.

"During Thursday night’s session of #langchat, participants discussed various interactive ways to develop students’ world language writing skills. The discussion topics included ways to include all types of writing from creative writing to analysis and discussion. By using various methods such as online tools, group discussion and word games, teachers are encouraging and incorporating imaginative thought."

Mentira

Mentira | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Mentira, a project launched in July 2009, is the first mobile, place-based, augmented reality game explicitly oriented towards the development of language skills in Spanish. It is set in a Spanish-speaking neighborhood in Albuquerque, NM and plays out much like a historical novel in which fact and fiction combine to set the context and social conditions for meaningful interaction (in Spanish) with simulated characters, other players, and local citizens.
