Digital Assistants for Foreign Language

Oct 20, 2015 by

Students can practice their foreign language skills by changing the language on their mobile device digital assistant.  For example, iPhone users can change the language of Siri to Spanish and then they will speak to Siri in Spanish and get Spanish responses.  Students can also use Siri to convert dictated practice sentences to text to work on their pronunciation of terms.

For more practical strategies like this, order your copy of Teaching the Last Backpack Generation: A Mobile Technology Handbook for Secondary Educators.
