ANVILL | National Virtual Language Lab [from CASLS]

ANVILL | National Virtual Language Lab [from CASLS] | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"ANVILL (A National Virtual Language Lab) is a speech-based toolbox for language teachers. Like the language lab console of old, it's focused on the practice of oral/aural language, but at its core are very modern web-based audio and video tools from duber dot com and the University of Oregon: Voiceboards, LiveChat, and Quizzes and Surveys. Our newest tool, TCast, allows teachers to record and place audio or video files anywhere in a lesson--in 3 easy steps. Each of these tools really opens up the scope and sequence of lessons centered around spoken language tasks."

Intéressant croisement entre des niveaux d'intégration des TIC (technology integration) par les enseignants (entry, adoption ... transformation, un peu inspiré d'ACOT et d'autres) et des composantes de dispositifs pédagogiques (activités, interactions, productions et buts ... il faudra que j'adapte avec mon modèle pédagogique )  de quoi mieux comprendre "où j'en suis dans mon dispositif" et "vers où le développer". A adapter pour l'enseignement supérier ?

Le modèle serait à adapter pour le supérieur, mais il propose des pistes intéressantes.

Not sure about "correctly," but the grid is worth looking at for relevant factors in technology integration in the classroom.  The comments to this blog post include links to other grids and rubrics.

More Spanish: Oral Assessments via Google Voice | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it
We are finishing up midterm exams, and this is the first year I feel the test has been meaningful for my students. This year I set the test up to have three parts: an oral assessment, a written assessment and a traditional vocabulary/grammar section. The students recorded the oral assessment on Google Voice the last two days of the term, giving me a weekend to start grading them.

"Check out "The Challenge of Assessing Project-Based Learning" to hear why school leaders think we're heading in a smarter direction when it comes to assessment.

 

As one principal told me, "We pay attention to what we measure. If we can shift the measurement so that students are better prepared and more engaged learners, then let’s do it.”

Weblogs: a tool for EFL interaction, expression, and self-evaluation [ELT Journal]

Weblogs: a tool for EFL interaction, expression, and self-evaluation [ELT Journal] | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Abstract:  "The use of blogs in EFL learning and teaching has recently attracted a great deal of research attention. Previous research has demonstrated that blogs foster development of EFL skills. This study, which takes a sociocultural approach, focuses on EFL interaction. Specifically, the study aims to identify the interaction strategies that bloggers employ by exploring both teacher-initiated and student-initiated interactions. An EFL undergraduate class at the University of Chile serves as the vantage point for discussion. Bloggers’ posts and comments are thematically analysed for the purposes of this study. It is demonstrated that blogs promote EFL interaction, self-expression, self-evaluation, and a sense of language progress. The study may be of interest to educationists around the world who are interested in identifying how blogs can best be harnessed within foreign language education for the benefit of learners."

How Technology Can Change Assessment

How Technology Can Change Assessment | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

Many discussions of technology-based assessments concentrate on automating current methods of testing to save time and cost. However, technology also changes what educators can assess, how and when to assess it, and for what purpose. Assessments can be embedded in ICTs, and have the potential to measure learning processes, in addition to end-of-lesson knowledge.

This looks like a good read.

Brahim Aniji's comment, January 18, 2013 11:50 AM
Testing is said to be one of the most important elements in learning and teaching. Exams and tests should not be used as the only way of testing different learners. Thus teachers are kindly asked to assess students performance based the following: Home work assignments, projects in groups, participation, portfolio, oral tests, ......

" ...

One of the frustrating things I found in teaching online last semester was the lack of direct contact with students. The class felt impersonal, despite my efforts to give it life.  I found that especially frustrating when I graded assignments. The feedback seemed cold and distant, even as I as I tried to point out strong areas of writing and multimedia projects.  I overcame this in part by using my iPad to add audio comments to grading. ...
