Create, Consume, Collaborate: Personalised language learning with iPads

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

This workshop will explore practical ideas on how iPads can facilitate collaboration and foster creativity through personalised language learning journeys and workflows. We will look at how the multi-modal device can help learners access higher order thinking skills, cater to multiple intelligences and create new ways of working, putting the learning right in the students’ hands. Joe Dale will walk you through how iOS devices can be used for consuming and creating multimedia content drawing on a range of skills as well as issues such as file management, classroom voting and QR codes. He will be sharing some top tips on how to keep up to date with the latest recommended apps for education and troubleshooting any issues you may have along the way. Suggestions of YOUR favourite apps are welcome too.

Programme:

Part 1: 2hrs Promoting listening and speaking, pronunciation and confidence with the iPad
In this session, we shall look at a range of apps for recording and editing audio, combining images with a voiceover and creating engaging animations and narrated slideshows which help to improve listening and speaking skills

Part 2: 60 mins Exploring QR codes for promoting all four skills
In this session we will look at how Quick Responses (QR codes) can transfer website links and text to learner's iPads quickly and easily from an interactive whiteboard or paper worksheet. We will also explore the potential of creating audio QR codes and screencasts.

Part 3: Plenary and close

You will:
- discover how the iPad marks a change in pedagogy by encouraging creativity, personalisation and learner autonomy
- see how a range of apps can promote speaking and listening skills and cater to learning styles producing professional looking resources
- pool ideas about the usefulness of different apps via an online bulletin board

Participants should plan to bring their own iPads if possible, although a limited number should be available to borrow if you do not have one. Information will be sent prior to the workshop with a list of apps that should be downloaded ahead of time.
