Session Description:
The Tablet PC and Web 2.0 tools can create a portable language lab that can be used to connect learners from different schools and different countries to foster an understanding of culture and language acquisition. Learn how video and audio commenting can facilitate simple practice activities as well as cross cultural, inter-classroom connections. Explore the use of a variety of free tools like Vaestro, Seesmic, TokBox, and Vocaroo that can turn the Tablet into an audio workshop. We will also examine how tools like Glogster, Scrapblog, GoAnimate and Mixbook provide a venue for creating engaging activities that have students work with language in both oral and written form.
