Educational Apps of the Month–February

Wow..this was a short month! I feel I just finished writing last month´s, and the first one in the series, Educational Apps of the Month post. As I mentioned last time, most of the apps we´ve reviewed are for the iTunes apps platform just because that is what I use. However, Susan jumped in on the apps game and wrote a review of several Android apps for bilingual kids. Check it out. Now on to our Educational Apps spotlight forRead More ...

Android Apps for Bilingual Children

I love technology!  Not only is it fun to use, but my students love when I use it in the classroom.  Whenever, I assign a project, I try to incorporate technology since it engages and stimulates the students.  Learning Spanish becomes more meaningful and exciting in the lives of young people when modern technology is incorporated into a lesson. Recently I have discovered that this same phenomenon occurs with my own sons.  Inspired by Ana’s posts on the educational appsRead More ...

Foreign Language Friends Educational Website {Giveaway}

I think I’ve mentioned that my motto around here is, “Anything goes, as long as it’s in Spanish.”  This means we have quite a few DVDs in Spanish but not many in English.  It’s why we’ve put together quite a library of books in Spanish as well, so that we always have plenty to choose from.  However, when it comes to computer games in Spanish, I’ve found the selection lacking.  In fact, the only Spanish website my sons are everRead More ...

9 Handpicked Apps for Bilingual Children

No doubt our children are growing up in a digital and connected world. Smartphones, computers and portable gaming devices are all around them since they are born.  Rather than shield them, I advocate for teaching them the best use of technology. I do carry an iPhone with me and I don´t know what I did before it. I have a great collection of apps that keep my daughter entertained while in the car during long drives or at moments whenRead More ...
