Olivia Solis Casso's curator insight, December 18, 2012 1:42 AM

The best way to learn another language is by spending time with it and using it. The instruments are up to the learners. The apps sound like one of the many great tools out there to spend time with the target language.

Olivia Solis Casso's curator insight, December 19, 2012 3:12 PM

Technology is here to stay, and we should use it as an ally; not viceversa.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, April 19, 2013 1:05 AM

This is a GREAT article!! It provides at least 10 apps under each of the categories of Spanish, French, German, English, Italian, Chinese, Sigh Language (!) and Miscellaneous. Definitely worth a look if you study/teach any of these languages!

And if the poster uses the command, "Retweet" rather than "RT", the retweet rate increases twelve-fold...! Remember, less than 100 chars means +17% engagement, too. More than 2 +hashtags reduces this again by 17%!

How Will Classrooms Change With the Use of Computers?

How Will Classrooms Change With the Use of Computers? | New learning | Scoop.it

By now, most would agree that technology has the potential to be a useful tool for learning. Many schools have invested in some form of technology, whether it’s in computer labs, tablets, or a laptop for every student, depending on their budget.

But for many schools, finding a way to integrate the use of tech in a traditional setting — teacher-centered classrooms — is proving to be a challenge. What educational software should be used? What criteria should the software be judged against? And what happens to the role of the teacher and classroom activities when students are using software for practice exercises?  Mindshift
