World Language Conversations w/ Keynote Live Video

Earlier this year, the Spanish teacher on my campus and I came up with a framework for using Numbers to to practice listening, writing, and speaking Spanish. It's a great way for her to quickly and easily assess her 150+ students. I'll be presenting some digital tools to our district's world language teachers this summer, and I've been thinking about ways to take that to the next level using Keynote Live Video.

I created a simple Keynote template to frame these conversations. The first step is for the teacher to add audio prompts for the student to listen to, translate, and then respond to. The students turn on live video, then screen record themselves playing each audio clip and responding in the language they're practicing to create the full "conversation." Below is a screenshot of an example I made:

It's a simple idea, but it makes it easy to practice, assess, and keep track of these skills through personalized conversations. A framework like this could even be used to for student collaboration if partners create the prompts and responses.
