IMG_6798

The coordinator of the AGnovel project, Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner, presented the APP, the materials and the tool to different learner groups as well as to students and teacher students. In all discussions the advantages of the use of mobile learning environment in school and in teacher training became very clear. The feedback on the graphic novel and the combination of addressed competences was really amazing. The learners,  the students and teacher students were very interested in possibilities to combine language learning, vocational learning and focussing on social competences as well as on cultural differences. The training course of AGnovel was a really helpful tool to get a clearer and useful impression about mLearning, the story of the graphic novel and the didactical background.

Prolongation of the AGnovel project

The AGnovel project was extended to the end of march 2016.
This longer duration makes it easier to do the testing of the AGnovel APP and the courses as well as the didactical materials much easier.

The testing in UK and Germany was already a great success. The testings in the other countries are starting.

Presentation of AGnovel on the fair: Perspektiven 2015

Evaluation questionnaire for the testing

To do an evaluation accompanying the testing of the AGnovel tool and the didactical material the AGnovel partnership uses an evaluation questionnaire which is now designed and checked.

It focusses on the use and acceptance of mobile learning as well as on elements of the AGnovel tool. The aim of the evaluation is to get more informations of the users about their needs and their experiences with the tool and the didactical environment.

The questionnaire will be used in the partner countries and is a basis for redesign opportunities. At the moment the questionnaire is used in UK and Germany while the testings. The testings in the other partner countries starts soon.

All evalutaion results will be compiled and used for further developments.

 

The testing starts

The testings in UK and Germany are starting at the moment. The AGnovel tool for language learning as well as the didactical materials are tested with learners.
The pretests which already run this year were very successful and we had really great feedback of learners and teachers. The pretests were used as a basis for the finalisation of the tool.

Now, all illustrations, audio files, and learning tasks are integrated and the testing can take place in each country. The other partner countries will start the testing phase in october and november 2015.
