More wired than a Roman Internet café

Here are some ways I have used technology with my students, the majority aged about 11-14:



I have had them meet on and explore parts of vroma.org, the virtual Rome MOO.
I have used quia.com to set up class pages, record Latin for students to listen to, post up images, write quizzes and games, search for other people's materials there. I have had my students create their own web pages with Dreamweaver.



I have used SKYPE (free on line telephone software) to run an on-line Latin class with one student on a different continent.



I have used makebeliefscomix.com to have my students create simple Latin cartoons.



In Greek, I have used the on-line Woodhouse English-Latin dictionary at
http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/efts/Woodhouse/
and I have used this site (set up by John Piazza) to read Greek text with a friend on line:
http://www.johnpiazza.net/greek_boy_at_home



I subscribe to the Oerberg list and to Latinteach, an email list for teachers of Latin, very helpful.



I use Cambridge Latin and Minimus webpages with my students.

Anna Peregrina



I use Perseus and The Latin Library frequently.

Wow, Ann, this is fantastic! Do you keep a blog somewhere of your classics adventures? If you do, let us know - I will subscribe immediately - it sounds like it would be so much fun to hear what you and your students are up to!

If you don't have a blog elsewhere, maybe you will report back at this blog about new experiments you are trying. makebeliefscomix.com is new to me, and it looks fantastic! Thanks for the tip! :-)

Thanks, Laura. I really enjoy using your fabulae too. I guess this will be my official blog! I will try to update it with new things I'm trying. There's another, much fuller comics site, but it is so huge I am not yet sure it's "safe" to turn my kids loose on: toondoo.com. You have to register, but it's free. Let me know what you think if you try it out.

Toondoo.com is the one that I know and have recommended to my students just for fun - although it was kind of too much - I was going to play with makebeliefscomix this weekend and see how that turned out; it looked more simple, less distracting. For the classes that I actually teach (not language class), I haven't quite figure out how to make use of the comics generators, but I'd like to. It's on my list to ponder for this summer! :-)
