There's an App for That: An Exchange

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You probably already know about some of the best organizational apps to assist with file management and research, but there are also mobile apps that you can use with your students to foster collaboration, increase exposure to target language/culture, and encourage lifelong learning. Whether used in or beyond the classroom, mobile apps—particularly those created for use in the target culture—are an effective tool for learner engagement and the use of the target language in context.

This panel introduces participants to many of the presenters’ favorite apps, and shares strategies for successful implementation into a curriculum and daily life. Audience members are encouraged to share their favorite apps as well, and participate in discussions regarding appropriate learning objectives, goals, assessments, and other pedagogical applications for the apps mentioned. For a hands-on experience, participants should bring their own mobile devices, although it is not required.
