My students need 3 iPads so that we can go on virtual field trips to Spanish-speaking countries. I want to motivate my students to travel and become bi-lingual.
Do you remember what it was like when you first set foot in a new country? Most of my students have never been out of the country and I would love to be able to take them to Barcelona, Mexico City, or Macchu Picchu.
I am sure you remember learning a language in middle or high school, right?
"Clase, abre tu libro...repita "Juan y Maria.." I want my Spanish students to be engaged in a student-centered, fun, and technology-rich class. I have 200 middle school kids who are enthusiastic about learning Spanish! They come in excited, and curious about how to talk to others in their new language. Contrary to common belief my 13 and 14 year old students are respectful, care about their environment, and are ready to take on the world. I encourage them to learn about other countries and the way other cultures live, and hope that one day they will have the opportunity to travel to Spanish-speaking countries to practice what they've learned in class.
Not every school has the resources necessary to take their students on an airplane . . . or spaceship. The iPad can bring the world to my students' fingertips in ways never before possible. Many museums and national monuments have apps designed for onsite visitors, and with an ipad in the classroom, my students will be able to view these international places just as if we were there. The Ipad app. Edutopia is an excellent navigational tool for classrooms who can't make the trip. There are also a variety of free apps that can be used as virtual field trips so that children can travel the world from my classroom!
The more we understand other cultures and visit other countries the more we understand our own country and culture.
Getting students interested in travel and seeing the world is going to motivate them o learn Spanish and seeing amazing places through the Ipad will keep them enthusiastic about learning, and travel.Read More
