The English Language Institute’s SALC: Adding digital depth to physical resources

Now that students are equipped with the latest and greatest in mobile technology, the very existence of computer labs on university campuses is being challenged. How can you make the most use of your current computer lab and make it a place where students really learn instead of checking email and playing Farmville?

Nicole Servais, Coordinator of the Self Access Learning Center (SALC) at the English Language Institute, came up with several smart and affordable solutions to help students be more focused on learning English inside and outside the computer lab. She uses QR codes, Google Sites, and Google Analytics to enhance the physical resources available in the SALC. The following video highlights some of these ideas.

Can you think of ways QR codes could be used with your students? Have you used Google Sites or Google Analytics? Please share your ideas or experiences below!
