|Millennial students or so-called “digital natives”, regardless of which country they come from, spend lots of hours on their devices, which gives instructors the perfect opportunity to generate shared experiences. We can use technology as the stepping stone to get students from different cultures and backgrounds to come together and learn from one another while enriching the classroom. It is not a one-size-fits-all solution; however, choosing the right tools can certainly help in the global classroom. Many tools and apps can be used to enhance collaboration and interaction between students and students and teachers. Because technologies are now always available to users, we need to thoughtfully choose the tools and make sure they will enhance the classroom rather interfere with it. In this hands-on workshop, while showcasing their research findings, Dr. Tran and Mrs. Lopez Bravo will share some of the tools that have proven to be successful in their teaching practice.
