Flicker Spancon


After reading a post from Tech & Learning regarding a teacher using Flickr for teaching Spanish vocabulary, I decided to check it out. The teacher created an account at Flickr, had students take pictures of over 500 objects, then he posted the photos up to Flickr and categorized the photos. You can access the photos to use with your students by going to Flickr (Spancon). The explanations for how to search Flickr for his photos is explained in the blog article.

I was searching for more interactives for World Language teachers (found a nice French Verb Usage review Notebook Lesson) and found the site has some free (and some by subscription) interactive lessons. There is some good stuff here for different grade levels/different content.
