Online Intercultural Exchange

Online Intercultural Exchange | computer mediated communication | Scoop.it
This volume provides a state of the art overview of Online Intercultural Exchange (OIE) in university education and demonstrates how educators can use OIE to address current challenges in university contexts such as internationalisation, virtual mobility and intercultural foreign language education. Since the 1990s, educators have been using virtual interaction to bring their classes into contact with geographically distant partner classes to create opportunities for authentic communication, meaningful collaboration and first-hand experience of working and learning with partners from other cultural backgrounds. Online exchange projects of this nature can contribute to the development of learner autonomy, linguistic accuracy, intercultural awareness, intercultural skills and electronic literacies. Online Intercultural Exchange has now reached a stage where it is moving beyond individual classroom initiatives and is assuming a role as a major tool for internationalization, intercultural development and virtual mobility in universities around the globe. This volume reports qualitative and quantitative findings on the impact of OIE on universities in Europe and elsewhere and offers comprehensive guidance on using OIE at both pedagogical and technological levels. It provides theoretically-informed accounts of Online Intercultural Exchanges which will relevant to researchers in Computer Assisted Language Learning, Computer-Mediated Communication, or Virtual Education. Finally, contributors offer a collection of practitioner-authored and practically-oriented case studies for the benefit of teachers of foreign languages or in other subject areas who wish to engage in developing the digital literacy and intercultural competences of their learners.

Virtual Exchange Projects for Teacher Education: Spring Semester 2018

Virtual Exchange Projects for Teacher Education: Spring Semester 2018 | computer mediated communication | Scoop.it
Do you work in inital teacher education?

Would you like to give your students first-hand experience in communicating and collaborating online with classes of students from other countries?

If so, the EVALUATE project (http://www.evaluateproject.eu/) will help you to engage your students of teacher education in Virtual Exchange projects with partner classes in other countries.

Telecollaboration, also known as Virtual Exchange, refers to the method of engaging classes in structured online intercultural collaboration and exchange projects with partner-classes in other cultural contexts under the guidance of their teachers.

This is what we will do:

• We will help you to find a partner class for your students.
• We will provide you with a well-developed model of telecollaboration which is specifically designed for teacher-education. The themes of the exchange are aimed at developing student-teachers’ transversal and intercultural competences and digital literacies. You will be given the tasks the students have to complete with their partners as well as texts and any other related materials.
• You will receive training in how to run the exchange and how to integrate it successfully into your classes.
• You will be mentored by a member of the EVALUATE team during the exchange who will help you to overcome any problems or challenges which emerge.
• You will receive the results of our study which will provide you with insight and evidence of the impact of telecollaboration on your students’ competence development.
• Most importantly, you have the opportunity to engage your students in a motivating and educational virtual learning experience.

EVALUATE - EVALUATING AND UPSCALING TELECOLLABORATIVE TEACHER EDUCATION (www.evaluateproject.eu) is an Erasmus+ KA3 project. Among the project members are the Ministries of Education in Hungary, Portugal, Spain and the regions of Castilla y León, Spain and Baden Württemberg, Germany. In this project we will carry out a European Policy Experiment where we establish the impact of telecollaborative exchanges on student-teachers in Europe.
