Pervasive playfulness and mobile technologies for embodied language learning by Paul Driver
Paul Driver uses technology to enhance his students' learning skills. He uses Google Maps to create an artifact used for storytelling. Every student uploads photos of streets or places and tells a story about them. He explains about a project that he is currently working on with his students: The language learners in this game are aliens and they have come to research earth including the people, the surroundings and objects. The students are required to describe objects as if they are seeing them for the first time in their life. Driver showed an example of a student describing a road sign, glass and other objects. The activity is amazing for anyone wanting their students to use language in a creative way.
