    ISTE LatinoThe ISTE Latino community is curating and sharing Spanish resources in support of teachers, students and families engaged in teaching and learning online and from home.  We are working to identify free available resources appropriate to all subject/content areas, and not limited to the teaching of Spanish as a content or foreign languages area. Please share your Spanish resources here or at ISTE Latino.

    We are also coordinating 4 ISTE Latino webinars in Spanish, as part of the ISTE/EdSurge COVID-19 Webinar Series efforts, to address the experiences and needs of our community members in Latin America:
    • Countrywide system strategies
    • Online learning strategies from teachers walking the talk in Latin America
    • ISTE Americas Collaborators CSR efforts in response to COVID-19
    • LATAM Solution Providers CSR efforts in response to COVID-19

    If you have educators that can benefit from participating in the ISTE Latino community please share the link and encourage them to join us. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ISTELatino/

    ¡Muchas gracias!

    Thank you so much for sharing this Yoli! I'm currently trying to find resources for a Spanish-speaking student who does not read any English and we're not sure how much Spanish she can read. She's living with all English speakers who don't speak Spanish. Google Translate is what she's currently using, but once it's translated to Spanish we don't know how much she comprehends. Is there any tech that exists that might help her? Thank you again!

    Hi Jessica,

    Make sure that you are using all the aspects of Google translate when communicating with ELL student (writing,translating, reading and listening).  If you are uncertain of your student's reading and writing skills in both native and second languages, the listening tool in Google translate will facilitate communication and understanding.

    Here is the link of the Spanish/English resources we have curated so far: https://www.facebook.com/groups/225298001745571/post_tags/?post_tag_id=499613037647398. I will curate available English to Spanish digital translator apps and will get back to you with recommendations.
