the process a teacher could use to create a digital resource that can replace or enhance a traditional textbook. The process initially seems overwhelming. However, using the curriculum as a guide, a digital textbook or workbook can easily be created utilizing authentic and open source resources. By directly incorporating different media and multiple technology resources, it will encourage the students to apply the content in real world situations and be more engaged in the learning process.
The audience will be made aware of great resources that can be embedded into the textbook replacement resource to make the learning more interactive and engaging. Examples of included resources are Voicethread, PodBean, GoogleDocs, Glogster, YouTube, StudyStack, ClassTools, and RSS feeds for blogs. Many of these tools can be utilized across content – they are not Spanish specific. The participants will be able to apply the digital creation process to their own subject area to create a textbook replacement or a textbook supplement.
