More About This Seminar

Mobile devices offer new possibilities and challenges as language learning transitions to “just in time, just enough and just for me” (Peters, 2007). This webinar focuses on understanding mobile learning, pedagogy that capitalizes on affordances of mobile devices and apps, activities that engage students in knowing how to learn from mobile technologies.

What Will I Learn?

Participants will
  • develop an understanding of mobile learning and the mobile learning environment
  • understand the pedagogical affordances and learning strategies supported by mobile devices
  • learn how to select and leverage mobile device features and apps to blend and support language learning
  • experience and gain new insights on language learning activities using mobile device and apps that incorporate best practices and pedagogies
