Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

I'm in my office tapping away on my computer, and can hear sounds coming from the other side of the door: clinks from my husband washing dinner dishes, and chirps from my son Leo's iPad as he happily entertains himself.

 

"Happily entertains himself" is not a phrase I use casually. While Leo is absolutely one of the happiest kids you'll ever meet, he is also autistic, and does best with 24/7 supervision and support. So for him to independently busy himself with that iPad is ... kind of a big deal. iPads are kind of a big deal for many kids with special needs.

Flipped Classroom Visually Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Flipped Classroom Visually Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Ipad Classroom, ICT, Education Innovation | Scoop.it

Flipped classroom or flipped learning is a methodology, an approach to learning in which technology is employed to reverse the traditional role of classroom time.

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

 If in the past, classroom time is spent at lecturing to students , now in a flipped model, this time is utilized to encourage individualized learning and provide one-on-one help to students, and also to improve student-teacher interaction. While the instructional or teachable content is still available in class, however this content is mainly designed in such a way to be accessed outside class which is a great way for struggling students to learn at their own pace.

7 Things to Consider Before Joining a Language Exchange | Language News

7 Things to Consider Before Joining a Language Exchange | Language News | Ipad Classroom, ICT, Education Innovation | Scoop.it

Learn Spanish in Spain La Herradura: immersion programs www.spanish-school-herradura.com

 

In this post we'll discuss the emergence of language exchanges as a tool for learning a foreign language and help determine if it's the right method for you.

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

Rapidly growing in popularity is the ‘Language Exchange’ concept – a simple way to learn a new language, and offer your own first language skills back in return.

 

Some use it to learn a language from scratch, some benefit from the exchange as a ‘refresh’ on language skills that are a little rusty. Not only does an exchange offer the chance to learn a new language, but an opportunity to broaden social, cultural and professional horizons.

 

Here are a few things to consider if you’re planning to make a journey into the world of foreign linguistics with a language exchange buddy!

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:
5. Studying abroad is fun.

There’s a dirty little secret: your university doesn’t want you to know about  studying abroad. Don’t tell them I told you, but in general, your academic load  will be much lighter overseas than it is here at home. Everything depends on  where you go and what you study, but you will probably have less homework, fewer  commitments, and possibly even less class time.

Your newfound freedom leaves plenty of time for exploring, traveling to  nearby countries, mingling with attractive locals, and – if you’re an American  who’s under 21 – taking advantage of the much lower legal drinking ages that  exist in foreign countries.

There are a lot of things your school doesn’t show you in the official trip  pamphlet. Trust me when I say you don’t want to miss them.

How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart

How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart | Ipad Classroom, ICT, Education Innovation | Scoop.it
My first two years of high school were a continuous struggle. I wasn’t very engaged during class, had a difficult time doing my homework, and was unable to get help from my parents because they didn’t know the material that I was being assigned. After my sophomore year I took the ACT test and scored a 13 – which was not good enough to have many options after high school.
Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

I began preparing myself to work at McDonalds because I didn’t think there would be anything else I’d be qualified to pursue after I finished high school. It wasn’t what I wanted – but it seemed to be my only option.

 

On my first day of class junior year, everything changed.

My school began flipping all of its classes, which meant that for homework, I was assigned videos to watch, which were made by my teachers and explained the material which we were learning. During class, instead of listing to my teacher lecture, we began doing our homework assignments. If I had any questions, I was able to ask someone else in the class or my teacher, who was there and ready to help whenever I was confused or didn’t understand something. Suddenly, everything started to make sense.

 

The biggest different in the flipped classroom was that I was able to learn at my own pace. When watching videos at home, if I didn’t understand something my teacher said, or wasn’t able to take notes fast enough, I had the ability to pause and rewind the video, and watch it again. Also, with class time now being spent doing work and solving problems, I could get help whenever I needed it. Rather than getting stuck on a problem at home and give up when it became too difficult, my teacher was able to show me what I was doing wrong, so I could figure out the answer and move on.

 

Learn Spanish according to the flipped classroom concept; the student studies the material provided in the virtual platform, and after each chapter signs up for a one-on-one evalution session online, with the Spanish native teacher in Spain.

10 good reasons to take a gap year before college | Ipad Classroom, ICT, Education Innovation | Scoop.it

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's insight:

Gap years are popular with European and Australian students, but remain  relatively rare in the Americas.  However, in recent years more and more  American students are preparing for college by taking a gap year.  

Here are 10 good reasons for you to go for a gap year.

 

1. Learn About the World

 

Although gap years don’t have to involve foreign travel, most gap year  students seize the opportunity to travel abroad.

 

9. Learn A Foreign Language

Proficiency in a foreign language is an invaluable skill for young people in  today’s interconnected world.

 

Living, working and traveling overseas is the best way to learn a foreign  language, which means that gap year students who supplement their high-school  Spanish with a Spanish Language Course in Spain, have a serious advantage over their peers.

Shannon Everett's curator insight, November 5, 2013 11:56 AM

This is a website for a immersive school where students can visit Spain and learn languages.  I think this would be a very good incentive for a self-directed adult learner to pick up a language when coupled with online language learning.  Students could practice Spanish with one of the teachers online prior to the trip while using other online tools.  Once they reach a certain level, as a reward, they can visit the school and be immersed in language learning while travelling and trying sports like "sailing, surfing, or scuba diving".  When they go home, the teacher can follow up with them online.  I like that this strategy combines experiential learning with online learning.  Students would be intrinsically and extrinsically motivated, and it would be a life changing experience.  I think this would be especially motivating for a student trying to teach themself a Spanish for the fun of it.
