The speakers, Prof. Lin and Dr. Loh, shared with us an e-learning APP for vocabulary and sentence patterns. It had been developed by the Education Department of HKU, and focuses on academic vocabulary, and academic/lexical phrases for academic genres. The app can be accessed with any mobile device, but preferably Android.
The speakers also introduced how the app makes use of student-generated content, with gamification elements, under teachers’ guidance. Students can make digital vocabulary or sentence cards and upload them to the app; students can also take a picture to create their own vocabulary or language cards.
