16 SES 03, Learning with Mobile Devices
As part of a longitudinal project investigating MFL pedagogy in a secondary and primary school in Devon, UK and an all-age school in Galicia, Spain, we report here on teachers’ developing pedagogic content knowledge in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) using Apple i-pads with classes of 11-12 year old pupils. Along with other curriculum areas in the UK, MFL has benefitted from considerable resourcing in ICT. Although recent research has reported much lower adoption of iPads in MFL teaching than in other subject areas (Naace, 2012), social media provide ample evidence of vibrant online communities dedicated to the development of MFL m-pedagogy (Dale, 2013). However, it has been shown that in spite of sophisticated pedagogical thinking, transformation of the learning process is not straightforward, with or without ICT (Gray et al. 2007). The relationship between the pedagogy of a subject, the culture of the subject and the technology has been shown to be crucial to engendering quality learning (John and Sutherland, 2005).
