Listen to Spanish: 50+ Amazing Spanish Listening Resources - Fluent in 3 months - Langu... - 2 views

  •  
    "I've said before that listening is one of my biggest challenges when learning a language. My Speak from Day One approach to learning langauges, means I'm usually stronger at speaking than listening.

    With that in mind, I've collected over 50 resources to help Spanish learners improve their listening skills.

    I've organised this collection into five categories:

    Videos: Watching videos helps you understand body language and provides valuable visual cues for your listening practice.
    Podcasts and Radio: For covering a variety of topics and speaking styles, podcasts and online radio can't be beat.
    Music: Listening to music gives you a look at the creative and poetic side of a language.
    News: This provides you with more formal, standard use of the language, combined with contemporary topics.
    Lessons: It is helpful to listen to Spanish in a structured environment, especially when you are first starting out.
    These Spanish listening resources are for everyone, regardless of your level. So, let's get started!"

Learning Spaces - Resources - 1 views

  •  
    "Imagine spending every day in a physical space designed for people much bigger than you. To wash your hands or get a drink of water, you'd have to drag a chair over to the sink or ask a friend for a boost. Your feet would dangle in mid-air when you sat down and you'd have to crane your neck and stand on tiptoe to read the bulletin board. After the novelty wore off, it's likely that you'd end up feeling uncomfortable, insignificant, and out of place.

    Unfortunately, this is how many children feel every day in their classrooms. Whether it's because the chairs are too big or too small, the aisles too narrow, the tables too low, or the displays too high, the message is clear: "This room was not made for you."

    The sad fact is that most classroom spaces are far from ideal. Perhaps they were originally designed and built with little or no consultation with the teachers who would be working in them. Or maybe they were designed for another purpose, or with tight budgetary restrictions. And while teachers probably won't be able to transform an inadequate classroom space into an ideal one, they can make dramatic improvements.

    So, where to begin? The most obvious place is by thinking about the students. Before moving a single piece of furniture or clearing a wall for a display, learn as much as you can about the particular needs of the children you'll be teaching by talking with families and former teachers.

    Below are some general guidelines to help you create a physical environment that makes children feel comfortable and significant and that best serves their needs."

Makerology | Venspired - 1 views

  •  
    "I've always been obsessed with all things creative.  I've always assumed I was just a Sharpie collecting, cardboard building, Lego designing girl who never grew up.  What was this relentless urge to create?  It's really been about being a maker, all along. The Maker Movement is making it's way into education and these are my favorite resources.  Join the conversation about making on Twitter by adding the hashtag #MakerEd, or the new hashtag just for resources for youngest learners, #Elemaker.  You can also add your name to a growing list of educators looking to collaborate!"

25 Resources To Teach Programming With Scratch - Techlandia Radio - 2 views

  •  
    "I normally don't like to create "click bait" blog post titles, but this one seemed to fit. Twenty-five resources can be overwhelming, but there is a good mix of different types of items. There are links to websites with lesson plans, iOS apps, books, videos, and samples of student work to fit your learning style. 

    Scratch was developed by MIT a little over eight years ago. It uses a visual programming language that is easy to start for students of all ages. Teachers can start with the Scratch Jr. app for the iPad. That app, linked on the list.ly below, is designed specifically for 5-7 year olds. The only way to learn new skills, is to dig in and give it a try. I love the summer for this reason. It gives me the chance to keep up and learn something new. I am going to try Minecraft with my daughter, Gwen, after I finish up this blog post. "

40 Important STEM Resources For Women - 0 views

  •  
    "According to findings by the Economics & Statistics Administration, less than 25% of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) jobs are held by women - even though they make up more than half the workforce and college degrees. An undeniable glass ceiling hovers over these industries, and women and men alike do their best to start lugging stones at it. While plenty of progress has been made over the past few decades, more efforts need undertaking to ensure a more equitable place for females in these traditionally male-dominated industries-a goal the following essentials share."
