Creativity and Mobile Language Learning Using LingoBee
Petersen, Sobah Abbas; Procter-Legg, Emma; Cacchione, Annamaria
International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning, v5 n3 p34-51 2013
In this paper, the authors explore the ideas of mobility and creativity through the use of LingoBee, a mobile app for situated language learning. LingoBee is based on ideas from crowd-sourcing and social networking to support language learners. Learners are able to create their own content and share it with other learners through a repository. The authors have analysed the language content created by second language learners in several European countries to identify creativity in mobile language learning. Three perspectives of creativity could be found: creativity spurred by the situated context or what the authors call "LingoBee moments", collaborative creative construction of content and creative use of language. Examples of each are presented and discussed. This work has been conducted within the EU LLP project SIMOLA, Situated Mobile Language Learning.
