In the spirit of the holidays we will bring you 12 Days of App-mas. Each day we will offer an app for education. We will offer suggestions for how the app can be used in a class. Comment with ways you have used these apps.
App: Duolingo Download from the App Store
Description: Learn Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, and English. Totally fun. Totally free.
I have used this at home with my daughters and they both enjoy playing the “games” while learning. We have introduced the app for students in both middle and lower school as a supplement to their classwork. Students can learn at their own pace and move ahead by testing out of the different sections. Duolingo also supports Google Apps For Education so our students can use their school email to create an account.
