Content curation as a way for students to develop critical thinking | ALL  ABOUT LANGUAGES-MARTHA MENDEZ | Scoop.it

I wanted students to be able to funnel their interests into a more authentic academic experience so that they could learn about what they want to learn about and become empowered as researchers, both casually and formally.

"Task design and CALL
6-8 July 2015, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain

Universidad EAN was present during the Task Design International call represented by the Prof.Martha Méndez, Head of the Modern Language online program. 

This study presents a research on collaborative work and immersive learning through a Virtual World for developing language and intercultural competences. It was conducted in the Modern Languages program from the Faculty of Online Education at a Colombian University. In such a program, it is essential to determine pedagogical strategies to develop language and intercultural competences and at the same time to foster collaborative work and immersive learning as a challenge in order to manage knowledge, learning processes, and provide students with opportunities to communicate effectively in multicultural and multidisciplinary contexts. This study examines issues concerning the theory and practice of collaborative and immersive learning as well as the educational use of Virtual worlds to enable the learner to develop language skills and intercultural competences through task-based activities, case study discussions, as the main learning strategies.

Keywords: virtual worlds,Immersive learning, virtual communities of  practice,collaborative work, Second life.

She explained the procedures to design the tasks-based learning strategy proposed in this study " VIRTUAL IMMERSION PROGRAM FOR LEARNERS OF PORTUGUESE" and  held during an International virtual exchange between Universidad Católica de Pelotas, Brazil and Universidad EAN, Colombia. It is necessary to clarify that the virtual exchange was the result of the researcher´s initiative in order to consolidate a professional network with the Brazilian professor from UCPel and was done in rhe CEDOI ´s land in Second life.

Enhancing Global Competencies Through an International Teacher Network

Enhancing Global Competencies Through an International Teacher NetworkBy Anthony Jackson on January 17, 2013 4:28 AM
 

This week, the Global Cities Education Network (GCEN), will gather for our second symposium in Seattle, WA. Ten school systems are meeting to explore solutions to two of education's most pressing challenges: the need to develop and sustain a high-quality teaching force, and the need to improve educational outcomes for low-performing and linguistically and culturally diverse students. Noah Zeichner, a National Board Certified teacher in Seattle and a teacher leader at the Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ), will present to the GCEN on how to build an international teacher network. Here is a sneak peak at his presentation.

 

by Noah Zeichner

Have you ever wondered how a teacher in Singapore or New Zealand might approach a concept that you also teach in your classroom? Where would you go to find an international colleague who might want to engage in a serious conversation about pedagogy or education policy?

A virtual global network of teachers could open the door to new perspectives on teaching and learning and to solutions-oriented professional collaboration. But it could also create space to practice the same global competencies that we as 21st century teachers, aim to teach our students.

I believe in the value of virtual networks. For the past three years, I have actively participated in the Center for Teaching Quality's Teacher Leaders Network. I have shared ideas about both pedagogy and policy with teacher leaders from my own state and around the country.

My CTQ colleagues have not only challenged me to reflect on my teaching in new ways, but also to think critically about the system in which I work. One of our first collaborative projects was to co-write a policy brief that outlines a vision for student assessment and teacher evaluation in my state. Much of the creative process for the report took place on CTQ's online platform, with teachers working together as a virtual team.

And I also believe in the value of face-to-face global experiences. Last year, I was a fellow in the Teachers for Global Classroom (TGC) Program (administered by the International Research & Exchanges Board and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State). Along with sixty-seven other teachers, I completed an eight-week online class on best practices in global education. In early summer 2012, I traveled with ten other fellows to Brazil for two weeks to learn about the Brazilian education system. Other fellows traveled to India, Indonesia, Ghana, Morocco, and Ukraine.

In Brazil, I spent most of my time in schools, interacting with teachers and students. This experience helped me deepen my understanding of global competencies, as defined by the Asia Society. And I'm better able to help my students master intercultural written and verbal communication and recognize their own perspective among a diverse array of ideas. Global education, of course, means much more than just learning about the rest of the world.

So why not bring together powerful virtual networks and the learning that takes place through global collaboration?

I am currently working with school and district administrators at my school in Seattle to match every teacher and staff member with a similar professional in another country. We are trying to use virtual communication, to practice the same critical 21st century skills that we are embedding in our school's curricula. We hope to share pedagogical ideas with our international counterparts, to develop some classroom exchanges and projects, and to form one or two new "sister school" relationships.

Down the road, I would like very much to see the roughly 500 teachers in Seattle's eight international schools who are currently engaged in teaching global competencies learn from the education leaders and teachers of Global Cities Education Network (GCEN) community.

There are great global online communities already out there like epals.com and iEARN.org where teachers can come together to collaborate on classroom exchanges and projects. But what about a virtual space where teachers can share ideas, learn from each other, and even work together to transform the global teaching profession?

A global teacher network could be a powerful space indeed. The diversity of great ideas would multiply. And the solutions generated by an international network of teachers could help all of us integrate best practices that may currently only be visible in our countries of origin.

And through international collaboration, we can practice what we preach: developing the same global competencies that we aim to teach our students.

Imagine that you could join a global teacher network. What would you like to discuss with international counterparts? What problems might you seek to solve by comparing notes and collaborating?

Noah Zeichner is a National Board Certified Teacher in Seattle. He currently serves in a hybrid teaching role, dividing his time between teaching social studies and supporting the Center for Teaching Quality's global teacher leadership initiatives.

Abstract

Nowadays, technology offers many tools that have been integrated into the training and teaching processes in virtual environments, especially for EFL. Fostering oral skills, collaborative work, and individual coaching in the language learning and teaching processes is a challenge higher education may take to develop the necessary skills in a foreign language.

This project explores and analyses the kind of vocal instruction that students are provided with in the Learning Management System (LMS) and considers the state of the art and pedagogical experiences of higher institutions related to the use of voice authoring tools for EFL .It also includes the analysis of impact  when applying this kind of tools in oral activities  for a group of students of an undergraduate online Modern Language program as well as the personal coaching offered to learners to achieve their goals.
