Contributions and challenges for network models in cognitive neuroscience

Contributions and challenges for network models in cognitive neuroscience | ADQUISICIÓN DE SEGUNDAS LENGUAS-SECOND LANGUAGE ADQUISITION | Scoop.it

The confluence of new approaches in recording patterns of brain connectivity and quantitative analytic tools from network science has opened new avenues toward understanding the organization and function of brain networks. Descriptive network models of brain structural and functional connectivity have made several important contributions; for example, in the mapping of putative network hubs and network communities. Building on the importance of anatomical and functional interactions, network models have provided insight into the basic structures and mechanisms that enable integrative neural processes. Network models have also been instrumental in understanding the role of structural brain networks in generating spatially and temporally organized brain activity. Despite these contributions, network models are subject to limitations in methodology and interpretation, and they face many challenges as brain connectivity data sets continue to increase in detail and complexity.

Webinar with Dr. John Norris « Language Acquisition Resource Center

Webinar with Dr. John Norris « Language Acquisition Resource Center | ADQUISICIÓN DE SEGUNDAS LENGUAS-SECOND LANGUAGE ADQUISITION | Scoop.it

Tasks have captured the attention of testers and educators for some time (e.g., Cureton, 1951, Wiggins, 1994), because they present goal-oriented, contextualized challenges that prompt examinees to deploy cognitive skills and domain-related knowledge in authentic performance rather than merely displaying what they know in selected-response and other discrete forms of tests (Kane, 2001; Wiggins, 1998). For language testing, in particular, interest in task-based performance assessment reflects the need to incorporate language use into assessments, such that interpretations about learners’ abilities to communicate are warranted (Brindley, 1994; Norris et al., 1998). Over the past several decades, tasks have come to play a crucial role in language assessments on a variety of levels, from classroom-based tests to large-scale language proficiency exams to research on second language acquisition. In this webinar, I will provide an overview of the incorporation of tasks into contemporary language assessment practice across diverse contexts, with a particular emphasis on examples of tasks used for distinct (formative and summative) assessment purposes in language classrooms and programs. Participants will encounter the basic steps in developing task-based assessments, including needs analysis, task selection, performance elicitation, rubric creation, scoring, and score reporting/feedback. We will also address the benefits of task-based assessment for language learners, teachers, and programs, and we will consider the potential that emerging technologies hold for enabling authentic assessments of language use. Finally, we will consider both research-based and educator-relevant insights into some of the challenges in doing task-based language assessment, and I will suggest a variety of solutions.

Who Needs Applied Linguistics?

Shona Whyte's curator insight, March 21, 5:18 AM

Some really thought-provoking discussion about practice vs theory in language teaching and research:

 

"The fact that human languages are so amorphous in their 'lebenswelt' is not readily appreciated by critics of applied linguistics.

Joining the public, they would prefer language teaching (along with languages) to be a compact activity which can be studied and comprehended as a componential system, resembling say, an exploded diagram from a car maintenance manual. Such notions represent more suspect notions about what language teaching should be (which ought to be dispelled in the first year of any course in TEFL or applied linguistics). Nevertheless, such critics would prefer to envisage languages and learners as essentially machine-like with vocabulary and grammar rules which govern their expressive acts. It takes a long time to convince them that human communication does not work that way. It takes even longer to convince them they should read extensively about how it might. Thus the thoughtful language teacher confronts popular conceptions which seek to oversimplify a complex task. This situation is neither appreciated nor imagined by the inhabitants of the ivory tower of applied linguistics."

How Languages are Learned: Lightbown & Spada

Three 3-minute videos to promote the 4th edition of their classic teacher education volume.

 

1. How languages are learned

The authors were invited to prepare teacher education modules to give practising teachers in Quebec access to research applicable to their teacher in stand-alone form as opposed to as part of university training.  Classroom research involves a combination of research training and teacher preparation so work in this area naturally has practical implications.

 

2. How has their presentation of instructed SLA research changed?

More classroom research has meant a lot of updating, but perhaps more significantly, the authors have revisited the place of theory, moving it to later in the volume until readers have a better grounding in learner language and individual differences so that they can appreciate the need for and objectives of theories of second language acquisition.

 

3. Instructed second language acquisition

If we agree that instruction helps, SLA, what do teachers do? What do learners do? How can that be described systematically and how can this description be matched with effects on learning? Classroom practice has moved on from structural approaches, to more communicative approaches and then recognised a need for balance.  Research has continued to focus on this balance, particularly in the variety of communicative approaches with emphasis on meaning rather than form,  such as content-based (CLIL, immersion), task-based methodologies.

The new paperback is selling for 23 sterling, ebook at 17 or so.  This is one of a very short list of books I recommend to undergraduate, graduate students and practising teachers alike - very accessible yet solidly anchored in research with ideas for teaching and classroom research suitable for all levels and areas of focus.

The relevance of second language acquisition theory to the written error correction debate: Polio, 2012


Via Shona Whyte
more...
Shona Whyte's curator insight, March 14, 11:13 AM

Takeaways for teachers:

- "correcting errors on the final version of a paper seems essentially useless if learners do not have to do anything with the feedback. What we need to consider is whether or not there is a better way to draw learners’ attention to the corrections other than simply rewriting."

- "give individual feedback through face-to-face tutoring or to supplement written feedback with conferences where feedback can be scaffolded according to the students’ level"

 

Otherwise in outlining SLA predictions about feedback on L2 writing, the article gives an admirably clear overview of different SLA theories (and opposing viewpoints) which may be useful beyond the specific focus of the study.
