Capstone Project Title
Julia Reimer and Maggie Struck
The proliferation of cell phones and application technology has changed the way individuals access learning. It’s also opened up a space for profit-driven companies to be included in educational options. This project focuses on Mobile-Assisted Language Learning applications, in particular Duolingo, and how they can best be used by Language teachers, especially English teachers of adults in non-immersive environments, to use Duolingo as a supplement to their teaching. The literature shows that these applications can be helpful, but need traditional support to be most effective. The question the literature brings to mind is how teachers can best use these apps. This project consists of a website for adult EFL teachers to use as a reference, as well as a podcast which includes adult language learner and teacher input on using Duolingo in their learning and teaching.
