Mobile e-assessment for ESOL


Published on

Colin Buchanan from Scotland's Colleges and Justin Sales from Stevenson College jointly presented a tool for language learning at the e-Assessment Scotland 2010 conference, and picked up the award for Mobile E-Assessment.
Colin and Justin report:

"ESOL students have identified speaking and listening as the skills that they want to develop, the challenge for us is to provide detailed, relevant and timely feedback.
A successful solution has been implemented at Stevenson College Edinburgh using mobile phones and Web-2.0 technologies.
Learners broadcast their submissions direct from their mobiles to a secure website at a time and place that suits them, their peers and tutors are instantly alerted by e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter. They can listen, and respond using their own mobiles, creating a cycle of broadcasting, feedback and improvement.
Tutors can also upload their own standard pre-recorded exemplar presentations and learning intentions for the learners to listen to prior to lessons."
