Eighth Grade French Students Design an App

Eighth grade students recently designed and developed a free iPad app called “2Lingua Kids” to teach French in a fun and easy way.  The project included creating a story (in English with French expressions), recording the story, making info boxes, incorporating a virtual photo album to illustrate the story, designing a logo for the app as well as a cover page, and writing the description for the App Store.

 

 

Throughout the project, students worked on basic coding skills, photography skills, writing and editing skills, and oral skills.  Most importantly, they learned how to think about a foreign language in a different way. As the story in the app relates to the adventures of the descendants of Louis XVI and Thomas Jefferson, the project also included a field trip to Monticello where the class received a private tour.
