This great site, created by Tom Butts, has been around for several years as a free site with mainly flashcards and games to teach Spanish I and II. It is now being upgraded to a site that teachers can not only use, but to which one can contribute and modify existing programs. It will still be free and renamed BRAINRUSH. Mr. Butts is allowing the teachers of Region 10 to have a SNEAK PREVIEW through a free trial to pilot the program which will come out later in You can give feedback to the techs, and be a part of a new, upgraded enterprise. See following slide for information about a free pilot opportunity!

Last school year I became Nationally Certified in Technology Integration, as part of that effort Donna M. and I worked on a project with an class of English learners in Spain and other classes learning Spanish. Here is a link to the digital stories her class produced (we were Chesapeake Bay or Arcadia depending on which site you are on). You'll see that the class over in Spain did a much better job of using English in their videos than we did with using Spanish in ours. If you pull down the "more" menu and go to the student wiki, you'll find links to some of the communication which went on between the students as they worked on their digital stories.

Contact Peter S. Crosby USA: This is a large company that deals with big companies to subtitle videos, but it has a free entity for educators who do not do large production, but use the videos for educational purposes only. The above contact is your voucher for this service. This is a huge resource for teachers who are able to get students to make videos for use in class, subtitle them, and engage these tecno- kids in an amazing way. Contact the help website on the above site, as well. Mention Mr. Crosby and the Region 10 session today. (SEE HANDOUT!)
See a video called Trial open to the public on Facebook on my Virginia Chisholm account. You can make short, free videos, or pay for full-length videos for $2.50 per month. If you use the free videos, they will expire within a years time and disappear from the site. Students participating in Blodgetts project in Spain used Animoto quite often. They did disappear, but for educational purposes, that is fine.

Free Aesops Fables Esopo 335 El cuervo y la jarra Un cuervo que fallecía sediento vio una jarra, y esperando encontrar en ella agua, voló hacia allá con placer. Cuando la alcanzó, descubrió con pena que el nivel de su contenido no estaba a su alcance. Él intentó todo lo que podría pensar para poder llegar a donde se encontraba el nivel del agua, pero todos sus esfuerzos fueron en vano. Por fin descubrió que coleccionando tantas piedras como él pudiera llevar, y dejándolas caer una tras otra con su pico dentro de la jarra, el agua subiría hasta llegar a poner su nivel dentro de su alcance y así pudo salvar su vida. Los momentos de crisis son fuente para el ingenio.
