      Mobile pedagogy for English language teaching

      by Agnes Kukulska-Hulme

      We propose a new Pedagogical Framework for Mobile English Language Teaching, designed to stimulate thinking around key aspects of mobile-enabled language activities for students. This workshop highlights the use of activities which exploit a dynamic language and technology environment while drawing on the distinctive capabilities of teachers and learners.

      Strong texts for weak learners

      by Thomas Cobb

      ESL learners are often bored by the simple texts they are able to read, but unable to read the texts that would interest them. Lextutor has two solutions: simplify complex texts down to the learner's level, or resource the learner up to the level of the text. Focus: hands-on, practical.
