When augmented reality games finally make a grand entry into the consumer market, everyone will simply have to have them. This is the way of the future and boy, it sure looks bright.

These AR apps are meant to accustom kids into using and enjoying augmented reality apps so that they can easily maneuver their way through whatever technological advances wait for them 10 or 20 years in the future.

Rachael Roberts - Motivating students to write

Rachael Roberts - Motivating students to write | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it
Speaking activities are rarely greeted this way, and yet both are forms of communication, aren’t they? Or are they? Perhaps one of the biggest problems with writing activities is that so often they aren’t about communication: they’re about answering a question the student isn’t particularly interested in or writing a letter to an imaginary person. If it’s hard to see why a student is doing a particular writing activity, other than to practice a particular grammar point or set of lexis, is it surprising that students aren’t particularly enthused?
