Summary

In this workshop we will focus on Educational Technology the teacher can use for in-class learning. We will demonstrate a response tool called iLike, primarily designed for language learning, and practice on using the software ourselves. Even though there will be a technical presentation, the main focus of the workshop will be to discuss and refine methodological approaches to use response tools in the lecture.
