Flipped Approach to Mobile Assisted Language Learning
Yamamoto, Junko
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Mobile Learning (Lisbon, Portugal, Mar 14-16, 2013)
There are abundant possibilities for using smart phones and tablet computers for foreign language learning. However, if there is an emphasis on memorization or on technology, language learners may not develop proficiency in their target language. Therefore, language teachers should be familiar with strategies for facilitating creative communications. The focus should be on how learners use the content, rather than content delivery through technology. This paper will combine American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) proficiency guidelines, pedagogies to promote language proficiency, and the idea of a flipped classroom to conceptualize the use of mobile technology applications to promote proficiency among language learners.
