Mentira

Mentira | LanguageLearningTechnology | Scoop.it

A good example on how we can use an AR platform (ARIS in this case) to create an AR game for our language classroom. Mentira deals with a murder mystery in an Alburquerque neighbourhood where students try to solve the mystery by moving around an area and interviewing people who appear on the screen as they move close to "triggers" that launch animations and clips on the mobile devices' screens. This is not science fiction, it is just imagination and creativity together with a good ICT tool!

A Place to Call Our Own: Personal, online learning spaces through eportfolios | LanguageLearningTechnology | Scoop.it

"Learning has been flipped on its head, with second-hand learning experiences now being converted to first-hand discovery experiences through experiential and problem-based learning. It is commonly recognized that learning no longer occurs only in classrooms; approximately 70 percent of learning occurs in the workplace and in the community as informal learning."

Poll Everywhere

Audience response system that uses mobile phones, twitter, and the web. Responses are displayed in real-time on gorgeous charts in PowerPoint, Keynote, or web browser.
Kristi Weisenburger's insight:

I just used this today for a grammar lesson.  It was not necessary for the class feedback, but the novelty of it kept the students engaged. The instant audience response was fun to see and there was no messy set up with applications.  I will be using it again now and then to allow all students a chance to respond.
