How digital publishing is changing the face of storytelling

How digital publishing is changing the face of storytelling | ELT (mostly) Articles Worth Reading | Scoop.it

The idea that print books exist at the top of a storytelling hierarchy, with video games, web series, YouTubers, podcasts, zines and interactive apps beneath them, is archaic and regressive: all platforms should be as highly regarded as print.

Language Teaching - Identity, language learning, and social change - Cambridge Journals Online

Language Teaching - Identity, language learning, and social change - Cambridge Journals Online | ELT (mostly) Articles Worth Reading | Scoop.it
In this review article on identity, language learning, and social change, we argue that contemporary poststructuralist theories of language, identity, and power offer new perspectives on language learning and teaching, and have been of considerable interest in our field. We first review poststructuralist theories of language, subjectivity, and positioning and explain sociocultural theories of language learning. We then discuss constructs of investment and imagined communities/imagined identities (Norton Peirce 1995; Norton 1997, 2000, 2001), showing how these have been used by diverse identity researchers. Illustrative examples of studies that investigate how identity categories like race, gender, and sexuality interact with language learning are discussed. Common qualitative research methods used in studies of identity and language learning are presented, and we review the research on identity and language teaching in different regions of the world. We examine how digital technologies may be affecting language learners' identities, and how learner resistance impacts language learning. Recent critiques of research on identity and language learning are explored, and we consider directions for research in an era of increasing globalization. We anticipate that the identities and investments of language learners, as well as their teachers, will continue to generate exciting and innovative research in the future.

Opinion: ‘Why England is crying out for a national Esol policy’

Opinion: ‘Why England is crying out for a national Esol policy’ | ELT (mostly) Articles Worth Reading | Scoop.it
If we are to meet the government’s stated aims on integration, we really need an English language policy for England. The language of a country is the unifying voice that supports assimilation into the country’s way of life. There are English for speakers of other languages (Esol) policies in Scotland and Wales, but here in England we work in a very confused and uncertain adult skills education landscape, without any guidance on what should be recognised and no agreed national position on what s
