Here is a tutorial on how to use Socrative in your classroom as a formative assessment tool.
This is not a tutorial, however it is a basic example of how Zaption can be used to create assessments as students watch a video clip. This one was created for my low-level Spanish students about immigration from Africa to Spain.
Storybird.com allows students to create online, digital storybooks. They can browse a variety of images in the Storybird database, and can create a simple picturebook to a multi-page novel.
Popplet is an online tech tool that allows students to create mind maps. A mind map can be used in almost any content area! A character map, the process of photosynthesis, a comparison of political parties, etc. It is easy to use, colorful and can be embedded onto learning management systems or teacher websites making it easy for students to share information with one another and their teacher.
GoogleVoice is a great tool for any content area, and I think it is absolutely wonderful in the foreign language classroom. Here's how it works. If you have a google account, you already have access to GoogleVoice abilities. When you set it up, it will give you your own Google Phone number, however it can be routed directly to your phone! You simply give your students your Google phone number (You don't have to give your personal number!) and students can leave a voicemail with a message up to three minutes long. This is a great tool for both formative and summative assessments. In my lower level classes, I give them some personal questions to answer whereas my upper level classes do book reviews or plot re-tells. Its a great way to assess students' speaking abilities without having to talk to each student individually during class time. Listen to two samples of my Spanish 2 students using GoogleVoice to record a story.
