As more students started owning smartphones, TalkTech 2013 moved to the world of mobile devices. Students had to research and report on the most popular apps and websites for podcasts and blogs, travel, photo sharing, mapping, online payments, cloud storage, video streaming, and health and fitness.
ThingLink was the platform for sharing their collaborative findings, and created annotations using audio, video and text. Video annotations included short conversations between students from both countries about their topic. Text annotations included individual research that each student conducted about their topic.
