Presenter for the Following Session
- Designing an Interactive eBook and Mobile Application for Second Language Learning
This presentation will describe an activity which sought to answer the question: What is the best technology platform for teaching a second language? In order to answer this question, a rapid prototype was designed and created to test out three formats for accessibility and learning: iBook, PDF, and a web page. The learning content came from a Hawaiian Language learning book, Ka Lei Haaheo, and was based off the first chapter: Pronunciation.
