So, what does this mean for the language arts and how might the emojification of language alter the way in which we communicate.

Sensory Map of Hong Kong - 111 views

  •  
    This a great idea for a project that successfully infuses technology into a language class. Students (aged 13-14) were required to go to an area in Hong Kong and use their 5 senses to describe what they experienced. Their English teachers helped them by taking them on walks around the neighbourhood of our school and getting them to think about what they could see, smell, taste, hear and touch. The students then worked in groups, picked an area they wanted to explore and set off to use their newly heighten senses. They used their phones to digitally record what they came across. Later this work was taken into ICT class where this interactive media rich website was created with the help of their ICT teacher. We hope you enjoy it! Check out the teachers' picks at the bottom.

    I particularly liked the "sound" elements that had actual sound! (usually film footage) - that's an example of truly making the experience multimedia and doing something that we couldn't do with earlier technology.
