Camera-equipped mobile devices, image-editing applications and photo-sharing platforms have led to a revolution in visual media. This talk will look at some of the ways these developments can be harnessed to provide opportunities for learner-centred tasks using student-generated images. Emphasis will be placed on practical ideas for classroom and project-based activities using both web-based and mobile applications.
