Over the past decade, educational technology has become an indispensible tool in many classrooms, especially for secondary language learning. Most of the original language learning applications were built for desktop PCs. However, as smartphones and tablets have become more powerful and ubiquitous, an increasing number of learning applications are available for mobile. I worked on a project with professor Katrin Völkner, focusing on mobile educational technology.
As part of my project I did an independent study where I looked into the effectiveness of mobile apps for education. I studied different features in mobile applications and looked at academic literature to determine how Präpp could be improved.
