Tablets are gaining currency for their application in the classroom. Recent research findings show the use of tablets in foreign language lessons to be as beneficial as collaborative and project-based learning. Tablets have demonstrated particular potential in the areas of speaking and listening; social networks and online communities enable students to work directly with authentic material in the target language, while rote-based learning has been replaced with the interactive sharing, presentation, and discussion of sophisticated multimedia projects. Even the role of teachers has been transformed: no longer confined by limited learning materials, teachers have the chance to place a greater emphasis on guidance, mentoring, and feedback for their students. Together, tablets give students the opportunity to access a vastly greater amount of material while taking learning into their own hands.
