I mentioned in an earlier post how excited I am about finding ways to use my new iPad2 in the classroom! I also mentioned my favorite app so far, called Face Jack. Here's an example of how students could use the Face Jack app on their iPads in conjunction with the adopt an escargot project which I currently use in my third year French class.
If you're unfamiliar with adopt an escargot, it involves students "adopting" a snail shell and inventing the life of the snail. My students love it! I used one of the shells that came in my adopt an escargot kit in this video. I also used one of the profiles that came in the kit to describe this particular snail. I plan on asking my students to make a video about their adopted snails next year, and to use Face Jack in the video. Obviously, students would be speaking French in their videos.
What do you think?
