How are learners motivated to know more about history of their own city? In Spain, learners visited an ancient cemetery in their city. They have investigated which people are buried there and what these people meant for the city. They found information on the internet and learners are also talking to members of the community. All obtained information has been incorporated into an app that the learners have developed. The app shows not only written information, but also short videos. The app is available in English and Spanish. Learners presented their app to the local authorities and it is now being used by tourists visiting the city’s cemetery. This app gives tourists more information about the history of the city. This assignment shows how learning about languages, history and ICT can be combined in a fun and instructive way for learners.
