I just signed up for twitter! Follow me at sopadelalfabeto! I am completely new to Twitter and I have to admit, I don't have a great attitude about it yet. I have only recently and reluctantly started using Facebook and I always said I would never use Twitter! As of today, I am following Alicia and my younger sister, who apparently has a Twitter account. I had some trouble finding other RB teachers though.

I am not sure how I will use this in class, but the article Alicia posted on the 17 Things blog gave me some ideas. I can see how it can be useful and I am starting to have a better attitude about it. We'll see how it goes!

Google Docs #4

This is one thing that I have already started using in my level 4 class. Jill McGrath and I set up a google account for our Spanish 4 classes and created sites for students to edit and post their group presentations. This is something she is doing for her National Board work and it has been working well with our classes. Our students can add their portion of the presentation to this site and edit the rest all at the same time. Way to go Jill! We are also using google calendar, since it doesn't seem like Skyward has a great calendar. With all the different activities going on in Spanish IV it is a great way to remind the students of everything. In fact, I like the calendar so much I've been using my own with my gmail account!

I just registered on Delicious. It seems like the perfect website for me. I am always saving sites on my favorites list and then much later forgetting what I saved! This is the solution. I can't wait to use it more! Join my network too! My username is bkriordan.

What I'm Following

For this project we are supposed to follow five other blogs. As I was looking at some of the others it was hard for me to narrow it down to just five. Everyone's looks a little different and I'm interested in what everyone is doing. So, I have the other Spanish teachers as well as a few other interesting blogs from the list. As we continue, I'll have to keep watching what other 'bloggers' are doing for 17 Things.

Here's another funny video I found on YouTube from Bueno, entonces
