Storyboard Text

  • Digital Literacy! I use computers all the time! It's gonna be so easy!
  • information literacy. media fluency. foundation skills. textual literacy. global digital citizenship. creative commons. Good thing my librarian is amazing!
  • Programs I've become more comfortable using: Pinterest, Twitter, Sqworl, Storyboard That, Google Apps, Screencast-o-matic,, etc.
  • Driving Question: What is the impact of authentic materials on second language learners?
  • Let's get Digital! Authentic listening, thanks YouTube! Culminating projects on storyboard that! Heck yeah! Virtual fieldtrips to Cuba! Spain, too?!? ¡¡Olé!!
  • ¡Vamos al laboratorio de computadoras!
  • Rationale: Our entire goal as language educators is to get students to be able to communicate. How can I help them become better communicators? To be more comfortable speaking in Spanish? Where do I find appropriate authentic videos? How do I implement them in my classroom?
  • En el Taxi
  • Mmmmm. ¡Delicioso!
  • Como hacer la paella
  • I utilized YouTube to search for videos of authentic speakers, also using Pinterest to look at materials other teachers have curated. I created scripts, comprehension and personal response questions, and vocabulary identification for students to show me what they understand. Check out the resources here:

  • We listened multiple times to each listening activity, slowing down the speed, and pausing regularly to check comprehension. We tried a variety of methods to show understanding: circling vocabulary words mentioned, responding to comprehension or personal response questions, filling in the blank with current vocabulary. Students also accessed to the videos outside of class.
  • When asked about authentic listening, students agreed that it benefits them in the real world. Their advice was to listen repeatedly, use context, and get the big picture. Students learn how to interact and speak in a second language, but also see how difficult it second languages can be and can show compassion when talking to someone with limited English proficiency.
  • Now What: Continue to seek authentic learning pieces, collaborate, and share information publicly. I will continue to seek, create activities for, and implement authentic listening in the classroom. I have shared the videos and materials already created on my professional learning portfolio, and will continue to add on as we go.
