Teaching Students with Disabilities is a great blog with amazing resources for teachers of students with Multiple Disabilities. The author, Kate Ahern, is an amazing advocate for children! - Bridget is an amazing blog that I found that provides lots of ideas (with examples!) of FL activities to do with my students. There are internet activities as well as those based on Web 2.0 tools, links for FL teachers, student blogs and wikis, and some great gadgets that I have already incorporated into my blog. In brief, it has shown me what a great French blog looks like and, more importantly, it has shown me a myriad of things that can be taught, reinforced, assessed and achieved via Web 2.0 tools in Foreign Language education today, both by student and teacher. It's awesome...check it out! (added by HLeger)
