Our Digital Natives

Our digital natives inspire us.

Our children, Soleil (4) and Geo (2), love to use our iPod and iPhone to play instrument apps. They also both ask to play Super Why which teaches basic English literacy. Soleil plays games that have taught her the alphabet in French and she can sing along to several children’s songs in French from YouTube.

We are wondering if there’s any other parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, teachers, etc., out there who are inspired as we are, by the digital natives in their lives…and if so, how? What are you doing with your inspiration? We’d love to hear!

As teachers and as parents we want to keep learning about the new amazing apps that hand-held devices are providing for our digital natives in the classroom and at home. Sometimes it’s hard to sift through all the possibilities! There are so many!! If you have found any must-have apps or other online resources for learning Math, French, Spanish or English, please share! Thank you!

Hi World! Salut Monde! Hola Mundo!

We are on an educational adventure. Our goal is to create a non-profit organization that promotes multiliteracy, multicultural awareness and peace. We believe that literacy has multiple forms and we are especially passionate about technology literacy, math literacy and literacy in multiple languages.We’d like to share top-notch educational resources in our fields of expertise: Math, French, Spanish and English. We believe that through the use of technology, we can create our own engaging videos and share them with the world. Our hope is that others will be willing to share in our efforts to help us create the Sunny Earth Academy: Where Learners Become Global Teachers!
