Mobile Devices and Productive Classroom Collaboration by Raquel Gonzaga
In this keynote, I share my successful experience of having students (adult and teenagers) enhance their lexical and communicative skills by collaborating in real time using the app Google Docs in their mobile phones. I show the evolution of their first drafts and attempts to their current usage and how that has impacted their written and oral production.
