Using mobile apps for telecollaborative photo exchanges (research-oriented)
17:15 - 18:00
This presentation introduces a telecollaborative project between learners of German in the US and learners of English in Germany that focuses on the exchange and discussion of photographs taken by students on given topics. The presentation summarizes preliminary findings from a research project which analyzes students’ development of intercultural competence as measured by the intercultural sensitivity scale (Fritz, Möllenberg, & Chen, 2002) before and after the photo exchange. Additionally, students’ feedback on the exchange will be summarized.
