TRANSCRIPT

  • ABOUT US

    Learn English with apps: the purpose of this project was to make students test and write

    about apps that can help them improve their English language skills. The project aimed at taking

    advantage of a powerful and engaging learning tool the students smartphone. Considering

    the huge amount of apps everywhere, the project wanted to make students test some of them

    (chosen by the teachers) for some time and see if they were effective or not.

    The final products of this project are 2 digital magazines, logos and some posters. Twinspace

    and Google Docs were used by students and teachers, allowing everyone to work in the same

    shared files.

    Portugal (EBI So Domingos, Covilh)
