We will highlight the difference between passive and active learning and give you practical tips to make your child or student’s learning more “minds-on”.

How can educational apps help children learn languages?

We will explore the processes app developers need to go through when designing high-quality learning experiences for children. You will learn how children using apps before class can enhance your own teaching in class.
