Are you looking for different ways to present new words to your students? Do you want them to learn vocabulary in meaningful contexts and remember them easily? Do you want your students to keep online or mobile vocabulary notebooks and work collaboratively?

Vocabulary teaching plays a significant role in language learning and the number of tools and techniques to be used for vocabulary teaching has increased rapidly. Many students do not keep regular notebooks and vocabulary cards. In addition, they are very dependent on their mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. However, in many institutions they are not regarded as learning tools and students are unaware of the fact that they can use them for learning purposes. There are many available tools which can make vocabulary teaching learning fun and engaging.

In this workshop, the participants will learn how to make vocabulary learning more meaningful and fun by using some Web 2.0 tools and mobile applications enabling collaboration and discovery .They will also have the chance to reflect upon their present use of vocabulary teaching techniques and how to incorporate educational technology into it.
