FLW: Making Language Learning Fun with Engaging Apps & Online Tools

July 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Mary Poppins (Walt Disney, 1964) got it right when she said, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and — SNAP! — the job’s a game!”. In this​ webinar, participants will explore a set of engaging free and low-cost apps and online tools that can be used to support language development in learners of all ages.
The course will cover apps and tools that run on iPads and iPhones, Android phones and tablets, computers and Chromebooks. View examples of how open-ended apps and tools can be used to follow a learner’s lead. Participants will leave with a digital resource list containing links and/or information about each app and tool discussed in the webinar.
