Mobile phones and language learning


This week Curriculum Leadership reviews the second of two reports on the role of mobile phones in student learning. This article is adapted from a report prepared by The Le@rning Federation on the Mobile Application for Language Learning project, which investigated the use of mobile phones to develop secondary students' conversational use of Indonesian. Trialled in 11 schools across Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, the project's results suggest the value of a more broad-based use for mobile phones in teaching languages and other subjects.
