Language and literacy learning through art is now available (Unofficial translation)
LALI ArtApp is intended to support language teaching. The application includes tasks related to different themes that support the acquisition of vocabulary and grammatical structures through works of art.
The app is part of an online free language training package for immigrants and is available in four different languages: English, French, German and Finnish. On the project website, a handbook for teaching literacy through art is also accessible.
The tasks in Finnish are mainly related to the collections of the Turku Art Museum, while the French and German versions are related to the collections of local museums and the English version features art from all of them.
The free LALI ArtAPP app is available for Android phones from the Google Play Store and for Apple iPhones in the App Store.
The development of the application was funded by Erasmus +. In addition to the University of Turku (Finland), experts of education from France, Austria and Hungary were involved.
