How I Use It
Most of my students speak Haitian Creole and Spanish. Excerpts of texts and questions could be translated for students as one form of differentiation.
My Take
If I had to use one word to describe how I feel about this product, it would be AWESOME! I knew that Google had a translator, but never stopped to explore it. This tool is a friend for all pedagogues who sometimes experience frustration teaching language learners. With Google Translator, students have the opportunity to be involved in the same activities as the other students. While teachers still have the challenge of teaching the concepts, students do not have to be left out.
