Implementing mobile learning to support functional reading skills - Open Doors

Summary

This Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment project (OTLA), from 2016 – 2017, was a partnership between Open Doors International Language School (ODILS) and Cornwall Council Adult Learning service. It explored the implementation of mobile learning strategies using smartphones to support the functional reading skills of learners at Levels 1 and 2. The project produced an app, developed courses and materials based around exam areas, and set up a ‘sandpit’ area to enable teachers to experiment. An associated information leaflet contains a link to five tutorial and instructional videos. These have partial audio description but no subtitles or transcription. Both the case study and information leaflet have been improved for use with screen readers.
