IALLT Interview Project Episode 4: Interview with Leslie Omaña Begert and Scott Cardwell

In this interview, Jeff sits down to talk with Scott Cardwell of ImmerseMe (a tool that uses virtual reality to simulate real-life situations in target cultures) and Leslie Omaña Begert of FabuLingua (a method that teaches kids Spanish through children’s stories). Both were competitors and winners in the recent LaunchPad language education technology competition through the Language Flagship Technology Innovation Center.

Leslie and Scott discuss how they got interested in technology for language learning, how the pedagogical structure of their tools developed and what kind of process and what people have been involved to move their projects from idea to product. They give advice for those with innovative ideas and talk about the future of their products.
