The Best Language Learning Apps For 2015 | Listly List


Via Yuly Asencion
Shona Whyte's insight:

I haven't looked properly, but there seems a lot of just memorising lexical items here, with a sprinkling of unstructured videochat with native speakers.  Maybe apps aren't the way to go, or the right kind hasn't yet been designed ...

Learner-centred EFL with young German learners | VISIR

Learner-centred EFL with young German learners | VISIR | TELT | Scoop.it

Students explore and evaluate independently the improvement of their own learning via the use of digital media in concrete learning settings. This project is realised within the framework of “Karlsruhe – Stadt der jungen Forscher” (Karlsruhe – City of young researchers) an initiative of the Körber-Stiftung, Deutsche Telekom and Robert Bosch Stiftung.


At the beginning of the project the students identified problems regarding their learning processes and developed ideas how those problems could be solved through the use of digital media. 3 concrete scenarios were developed for testing.

Viewing mobile learning from a pedagogical perspective | Kearney

Viewing mobile learning from a pedagogical perspective | Kearney | TELT | Scoop.it

Article on mobile learning in teacher education from a socio-cultural perspective, Research in Learning Technology (ALT), 2012.

 

Abstract:

 

Mobile learning is a relatively new phenomenon and the theoretical basis is currently under development. The paper presents a pedagogical perspective of mobile learning which highlights three central features of mobile learning: authenticity, collaboration and personalisation, embedded in the unique timespace contexts of mobile learning. A pedagogical framework was developed and tested through activities in two mobile learning projects located in teacher education communities: Mobagogy, a project in which faculty staff in an Australian university developed understanding of mobile learning; and The Bird in the Hand Project, which explored the use of smartphones by student teachers and their mentors in the United Kingdom. The framework is used to critique the pedagogy in a selection of reported mobile learning scenarios, enabling an assessment of mobile activities and pedagogical approaches, and consideration of their contributions to learning from a socio-cultural perspective.

Magical Moments in Mobile Learning: 20+ Tips & Resources : Teacher Reboot Camp

Magical Moments in Mobile Learning: 20+ Tips & Resources : Teacher Reboot Camp | TELT | Scoop.it

Shelly Terrell:

 

"This past weekend I presented and helped organized the Virtual Round Table E-Conference. All the recordings are available here. I presented on mobile learning activities. One of the most compelling reasons to use mobile devices is to get learners to begin using the device to learn even outside the classroom. I remember that when I taught my learners how to do this they would excitedly come to class and report to me how they used their device to learn. Students carry these devices with them and already use it to text or post on social networks. Why not train them to learn with the device everyday?

 

Below is the link to the recording, the slides, and also various other resources. None of these activities require you to be on the Internet. They are meant to be used with standard tools that come with most cell phones and mobile devices, such as the ability to record your voice, take a picture, or record a video. If learners can do any of these things with a mobile device then they can do these lessons. These lessons also promote speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. I have done many of these activities with English language learners of all ages from 4 to 80 years-old and they have enjoyed them."

Soufyane Zanfoukh's curator insight, May 16, 2014 9:08 AM

Merci à Thierry Karsenti pour ce rapport. Ce que je retiens, en général, c'est que l'idée reçue pa rapport au niveau élevé des apprenants en matière de technologie est à revoir. Ce n'est pas parce qu'ils maîtrisent plus ou moins l'utilisation d'appareils informatiques qu'il savent en faire bon usage! Le rôle de l'enseignant est toujours aussi important pour encadrer et accompagner. 

Affaire à suivre...

Vocational English mobile learning route | VISIR

Vocational English mobile learning route | VISIR | TELT | Scoop.it

Wanna have a a conversation in English  while you walk?  The project is all about learning English outside the classroom by walking through a mobile learning route packed with  qr-code.


Qr-codes are linked to YouTube-videos, where a native English speaker asks different questions. Students read the qr-codes with the qr-reader app on their mobile device. Then they watch the videos and answer the questions by making a video, recording audio clip, making a comic strip and/or writing the answer on the notebook on their device. 

 

Students can send their products to their own blog and/or they can be watched together in the classroom.

Students' views of mobile devices for EFL: Nicky Hockly

Students' views of mobile devices for EFL: Nicky Hockly | TELT | Scoop.it

Nicky Hockly's quick-and-dirty survey of attitudes to BYOD reveals"the majority of the class enjoyed using mobile devices (questions 3,7,8,9,17), and would like to continue to do so in the future (question 11).  The majority also felt that using their mobile devices had improved their English (question 8), and their mobile literacy (see question 9)  by familiarising them with new apps such as Chirp, Audioboo, Woices, and new mobile-related concepts such as QR codes – the latter were new to everyone in both groups."  One student hated the whole idea.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Also raised questions about teacher's tech competence and need for all students to use same devices/apps.
