Smartphones have become the most ubiquitous electronic devices. For us English teachers, that means we need to either ban them in our classes, or come to terms with them and incorporate their use into our routine. Ignoring their ubiquity does not seem to help. So, why not engage our students in using those power-packed, hand-held computers to improve their skills in English?
In this workshop we are going to analyse the pros and cons of incorporating the use of smartphones in the classroom, discuss different functionalities and applications that might be useful for language teaching and learning and look at some engaging activities that students can carry out using mobiles.
