SnagFilms Widget

SnagFilms has the potential to be a great addition to a classroom. There are limited films for Spanish right now, but they are frequently adding more titles. In 8th grade the students read a short novel that takes place in Chichen Itza, so it would be nice to have a video that gives cultural background – like this example.

I like that I can embed the video into another site – so students do not just have to watch it in the classroom.

I would not let the students go directly to the website because there is some questionable content, but if I am embedding the movie it does not matter.

I would not have found this site without this blog. FreeTech4Teachers has almost daily technology inspiration for my own classroom. Sometimes it does not work as I thought it would, but I would not find it without their blog – thanks 🙂
