Spanish Elementary Technology Resources

I teach at an Elementary school with a Bilingual population and I would like to have some Spanish language online resources for my students. Even educational games in Spainsh would be great.

For authentic, engaging activities in Spanish, how about doing an online pen pal project with native speakers? Go to www.epals.com and sign up for the free services.
Much of Latin America is in school now until mid-December, then out for summer vacation (southern hemisphere). Spain of course has a schedule more like ours in US. You could exchange emails, postcards, podcasts, videos, etc. that would let your students see and hear Spanish in a native setting outside the US.
You can find partner classrooms in Spanish-speaking countries, find a free, safe and powerful email system built for education (ePals SchoolMail), and also find projects to engage your students for about 5-6 weeks.
Go to www.epals.com and look at "Collaborate" to see profiles of other teachers.
You can see brief tutorials at http://bit.ly/learnePals

I do a one-hour free webinar on the free tools each week. My next one is Tuesday, Nov. 2 at 4:15 pm (Eastern time). You can sign up for that or other dates at: http://epals.101.sgizmo.com.

ePals SchoolMail is used by New York City Dept. of Ed. for their 1.1 million students (starting in October 2010) and has TRUSTe certification of child privacy, something important for elementary students. You don't have to worry as you would with mass market email systems that are not designed for education.

You can see some student work posted in Spanish also in the ePals Media Gallery. And if your students make a short video, it can be posted there at no charge. Each month, 27 million unique visitors look at ePals, so think about what an amazing worldwide audience you would have for their work!

Finally, ePals has a partnership with Eduteka, a teacher portal in Spanish with 75,000 members. You can see it at: http://www.eduteka.org. They have some projects in Spanish as well.
