Abstract

In this paper we propose a simple technology-mediated framework for course design. By way of a group project, students were asked to discuss issues about their local culture using their second language. We illustrate that this type of out-of-class learning stimulated the students to use a technologically enhanced learning environment by engaging them with meaningful communication and we show instances from the project data where the following areas were covered: content, collaboration, and learner autonomy. Smartphones, when used appropriately, can be a useful tool for content and language learning.
