Intercultura: Explorando el mundo hispano
Intercultura is a collection of video-based activities that have been designed to assist Spanish students in the development of cultural awareness. The activities were designed using Adobe Presenter and are fully integrated in the webCT (Blackboard) courses for intermediate Spanish at Iowa State University.
This site is intended as a tool to provide information about Spanish culture via the country's gastronomy to students who plan to study abroad. Students are provided with relevant information and a quick panorama of regional cuisines of Spain, dining customs and tips when dining in a Spanish restaurant.
This site integrates an audio program for the study of Spanish dialects. The site includes audio recordings of several audio exercises (fill-in-the-blanks, transcriptions, dictation) by Spanish speakers from different countries: Mexico, Spain, El Salvador, Uruguay, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Perú.
This project looks to integrate report sent by students who are studying abroad in an electronic newsletter. The reports are in the form of text, images, and audio. Students who are studying abroad report back to campus on their experiences with the culture, people, and places that they visit. These reports are seen as a reliable source of information that on-campus students have first hand.
The following projects were developed as part of the coursework for English 510, Computer Methods for Applied Linguistics.
This website was developed as part of the English 510 -CALL course. The website provides a description of 5 online resources for the teaching and learning of a second language (English). A video demonstrating the features included in one of the website is also included.
In this activity, vocabulary and image glosses have been integrated in an attempt to promote active learning.
This activity takes advantage of the use of video integrating cultural information about the practice of gift giving.
