LearningBranch is pleased to be attending and presenting at the CALICO conference that will be held in Urbana, IL
This presentation reports on how students’ speaking performance is improved by integrating oral production and interactive feedback in a mobile-enabled, web-based platform. Examples are taken from instructors’ experiences using the LearningBranch platform to deliver French, English and career training instruction in blended environments. Oral production activities include instructor-created content using audio recording, video and other media, plus automated speech recognition feedback. Instructor feedback includes precise commenting on the student’s work using audio or text, via a notification center. The opportunity to practice and the interactive feedback greatly increases the students’ motivation and performance.
