ipads in Language Classes

This is not the usual type of post because I would like information from YOU...

If you are a language teacher that uses an ipad in your teaching specifically with TPRS or in the upper levels with CI (Comprehensible Input) methods, could you please share with me how you use the ipad?

Or, if you don't use an ipad in your language class because you don't have one, but have ideas for its use, please feel free to share those ideas with me also.

I look forward to hearing from YOU!

  1. There are a ton of digital storytelling apps out there. This could be a good way to check listening and/ or reading comprehension. My favorite is Sock Puppets. (It's hysterical!) I recently did this at the end of Los Baker chapter 4 since I was in & out of school for most of the chapter. I gave students the choice of drawing a 6-framed comic, using an online comic tool, to use a storytelling app, or some other visual representation of the chapter. The results were more creative and spot-on than I could have imagined.

  2. Thanks Sherry! I'll look into Sock Puppets. It sounds like fun!
