Mobile Devices

How to use mobile technology to help the learner. Phones and tablets in class are good!


More about the course

This course helps teachers to use mobile technology, such as phones and tablets, in a way that engages learners, helps them to become more autonomous, and personalises the learning experience.

The course will help you to create discrete, purposeful-usage slots in the lesson, transforming something that is not always thought to be ‘lesson-friendly’ into a powerful tool for language learning.

This course will include the instruction of activities, the explanation of language learning theory as it relates to mobile device usage, and of course support in the form of ideas and suggestions from peers within the teacher forums.

We will also cover the management of interaction patterns in the class with these devices, and also reflective self-study outside the class as an extension of the classroom activities.
