In the Classroom

The straight-forward suggestions found on this website offer many opportunities to engage and extend learning through peer to peer and global interactions. Encourage students to become involved in their learning by offering a choice of activities. Engage students by using an online polling tool like Dotstorming, reviewed here, for students to select activities that appeal to them. Use purposeful partnering strategies to pair partners with similar interests and motivate students to learn more about the Hispanic culture. Enhance learning further by asking students to demonstrate what they learned using their choice of technology tools. For example, offer students the option of creating a website using Site123, reviewed here, or create a travel brochure using Canva, reviewed here. Offer students the opportunity to make real-world connections by sharing their findings and projects with the community as part of your Hispanic Heritage Month activities.
