BBC Mundo ScreenToaster #16

I had a little trouble getting started with ScreenToaster. Once I slowly figured it out, I did a quick video about the BBC Mundo website. We use this website in Spanish IV every week. Students select videos from the website and lead a discussion in class about them. ScreenToaster would be an excellent way for students to post their videos and explain them to the class. These videos can be challenging for students and this would be an excellent tool to practice the videos and continue the class discussion after school!

Voicethreads #15

Here is yet another "thing" that has really surprised me! I didn't expect to like voicethreads. Even after looking at the examples Alicia had posted I didn't really see how I'd use it in class and I just didn't think I'd be interested in it. Once I registered and started commenting on the RB voicethread; it all seemed so cool and I started thinking of ways to use this in my classes. This would be great to work on in our language lab. Thanks Alicia!

Wikis #14

Wow! I think this Wiki thing is really cool. I'd love to somehow use this in my classes. It would be a great way for students to collaborate on a project without having to get together to do so! On a professional level, maybe we could somehow use this to update each other on language lab issues. Brigit R.
