Mairéad Ní Drisceoil, Coláiste an Phiarsaigh, shows how she uses digital technologies with her 1st year German class. The students use their own smartphones, working in pairs, to record a piece of dialogue on the subject of ‘My Family’. They script the dialogue first and then each student records their own piece, working as a team. They edit and re-record the piece until they are happy with it and then submit via a digital portfolio in Office 365. Mairéad is able to listen to each piece and provide targeted feedback within the digital portfolio system. Shared access to smartphones, a digital portfolio system or any cloud based system that allows sharing of content is required. The school’s AUP makes specific reference the use of students’ own devices. The activity itself is a very effective one and can be adapted for all languages and all levels.
