Online Learning Sites
With the abundance of online English study sites it has become increasingly difficult for students to, not only find useful sites,
but be able to move around and use the activities found on them.
This presentation will introduce a number of websites that were
recommended by students in Department of International Studies at
Kochi University for their simplicity and usefulness. Participants will be able to access these websites and explore the online learning environment.
Using mobile phones/digital cameras for storytelling.
To make storytelling more structured for the narrator and more vivid for the listener, a series of still images can be used. By recreating a story and taking pictures at certain intervals, an aid that can compensate for linguistic limitations can be made. The necessary technology, being a personal computer and digital camera, should be at every students disposal.
This poster session will introduce a project that involves students using their
mobile phones to create mobile blogs or MoBlogs about their daily lifestyles.
This poster presentation will demonstrate the use of Video Storyboarding as a creative means to narrative development based on sound grammar and logical thinking.
