With an influx of technology into classrooms, teaching has undergone a major change. From traditional lectures, classrooms have shifted to technologically driven interactive sessions. In Liberty Middle School, students from Señora Cielo Canola’s Spanish class use a series of eTextbooks called “Voces,” which means ‘voices’ in Spanish.
The Voces eTextbook includes text, practice exercises, videos, audio, games and reportable assessments, all of which can be accessed through a single portal by teachers and students. Each student has his or her own login ID number and can practice using conventional computers and other electronic devices, such as iPads and smart Phones.
“I keep track of how often students log on and practice,” Señora Canola said. “Every time they submit an activity I give them extra credit. It’s very engaging.”
The Voces eTextbook brings learning to life, as it also offers games, and photos and videos of Spanish speaking countries, she added.
The award-winning content in the Voces eTextbook series has been recognized by the Association of Educational Publishers. For more information, visit the Classroom Voces website.
