Short Session Description (one line):
Livemocha is teaching language by deploying skills-based training methodologies - and it’s working. Come learn about this practice-focused approach, why it works, and how you can use it to communicate with a global community.
Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):
With over 5 years of experience bringing language learning to learners, teachers, and organizations worldwide, Livemocha has learned what doesn’t work...and what does. And in the case of really acquiring a new language, it has become clear that language is not a topic to be learned but rather a skill to be practiced and acquired. Come hear how Livemocha has realized that skills-based training is the best route to effective language learning and see how the global company has built this educational concept into its next generation of online and mobile learning experiences.
Livemocha CEO Michael Schutzler will discuss the company’s learnings, demonstrate the newest iteration of Livemocha’s skills-based training methodologies, and give an exclusive look at the company’s new learning and content creation tools. In the session, Schutzler will also introduce opportunities for teachers and content authors to help build a collaborative global repository of language learning materials.
