Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology

My paper on "Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology."  (Actes du colloque FICEL sur l'évolution et professionalisation des enseignants de langues)

 

The paper discusses key competences required for teaching languages with technology, and concludes with examples of projects combining research, pedagogy and technology including:

 

"the EU lifelong learning project iTILT, Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching (Whyte, Cutrim Schmid & van Hazebrouck, 2011). In this project, language researchers and teacher trainers offer professional development in the use of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) to practising language teachers with learners at all levels. After initial training, class sessions at the board are filmed, and followed by debriefing sessions with both teachers and learners. Short video clips of selected lesson episodes are then presented on the project website together with lesson plans, lesson files, and teacher and learner commentary to aid other teachers in using the IWB for language teaching. The project website also includes a variety of related resources and dissemination tools, and as teacher training and data collection proceed, the project partners inform their networks of developments via blogs and social media. Thus teaching, training and research are closely interrelated as the project teachers develop their digital  and pedagogical skills, the researchers observe classroom interaction and teacher development, and trainers create resources for future professional development using feedback from the project teachers."

 

The iTILT website (http://itilt.eu) will soon go live, allowing language teachers and teacher educators access to this free open educational resource on the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in communicative language teaching.

What is Cognitive Science? An introduction to the mind from the view points of: neuroscience, anthropology, computer science, psychology, philosophy, and linguistics. | ADQUISICIÓN DE SEGUNDAS LENGUAS-SECOND LANGUAGE ADQUISITION | Scoop.it
Cognitive science is partly defined as the study of thought, learning, and mentalorganization, which are all investigable functions of the human brain. Therefore, byunderstanding the principles of the brain, we can take a step forward in holistically knowing whatthe mind is.Neuroscience and ConsciousnessThe brain is comprised of billions of neurons. Neurons are the fundamental cells in thebrain that communicate to perform most bodily functions and higher-level cognitions. The thingthat makes these cells unique is that they are plastic and able to adapt based on the experiencesthey encounter. Scientists' ability to study the connections and specific importances of groups ofneurons across the brain contributes to the understanding of how humans learn, think, andchange.Various behavioral methods like electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magneticresonance imaging (fMRI) allow us to record neural action in the brain during various tasksrelating to cognitive function. By using these techniques, and others, it has been proven that thefrontal lobe of the brain plays a large part in higher-level cognitive functions like analyzinginformation, solving future problems, developing strategies, and controlling purposeful behaviors.This is significant because lower-level primates do not have developed frontal lobes andtherefore are unable to complete these complex actions. This ability to perform higher-levelfunctions, that aren't simply primitive or instinctive responses, is what makes us distinctlyhuman, and ultimately what composes our unique conscious mind.While neuroscience can solve many questions about what it truly means to be aconscious being (like the ability to control instinctive behaviors), it cannot answer them all. Somehuman functions still remain mysterious because neuroscience can't pin down concepts likefree will or behavioral control. In conclusion, the mind is certainly an emergence from the brain,but it isn't necessarily a distinct subject that can be entirely comprehended by science in today’stime.3

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | ADQUISICIÓN DE SEGUNDAS LENGUAS-SECOND LANGUAGE ADQUISITION | Scoop.it

The highest-level executive thinking, making connections, and "aha" moments of insight and creative innovation are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of what Alfie Kohn calls exuberant discovery, where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.

Chris Brown's curator insight, July 25, 7:31 AM

Consider when you feel learning takes place.  Neroscience has been studying how the brain reacts in certain situations and they have found that:

 

"...superior learning takes place when classroom experiences are relevant to students' lives, interests, and experiences. Lessons can be stimulating and challenging without being intimidating, and the increasing curriculum requirements can be achieved without stress, anxiety, boredom, and alienation as the pervasive emotions of the school day."

 

As learning professionals we should consider the impact of stressful or boring situations on the ability of our learners to be successful.  The article concludes with a call to action:

 

"Joy and enthusiasm are absolutely essential for learning to happen -- literally, scientifically, as a matter of fact and research. Shouldn't it be our challenge and opportunity to design learning that embraces these ingredients?"

 

Joy and enthusiasm are essential...how are you going to embrace these?

Andrea Stewart's curator insight, July 26, 9:09 PM

Not surprising. don't we all remember mor when we are excited about the situation? Involvement.

Terri Rice's curator insight, Today, 8:39 AM

"Where students of all ages retain the kindergarten enthusiasm....[for] the joy of learning".... Now that is what I hope for in my students everyday. That joy and enthusiasm. Now we know this type of joyful, playful atmosphere enables better imprinting of information into accessible memories. Let's get back to kindergarten thinking!

"Metacognition is, put simply, thinking about one’s thinking.  More precisely, it refers to the processes used to plan, monitor, and assess one’s understanding and performance. Metacognition includes a critical awareness of a) one’s thinking and learning and b) oneself as a thinker and learner.

 

Metacognitive practices increase students’ abilities to transfer or adapt their learning to new contexts and tasks."

Follow this link to a series of exchanges between Geoff Jordan and Stephen Krashen on the latter's 1980s theory of second language learning which probably helped the Communicative Language Teaching approach more than any other.  Big at the box office though not a critical success, as Jordan demonstrates again here.
