Last month, BHS Spanish teachers, Ms. De Sousa and Mrs. Dacey, presented a four-hour workshop on “iPads and the Foreign Language classroom” at the Massachusetts Foreign Language Association’s annual conference. Last year, they won “Best of MaFLA” and were invited to lead a workshop this year that focused on applications used in language classes that enhance listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
