A is for Affordance

A is for Affordance | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

 "... Which made me think: we invest a lot in the learning opportunities afforded by conversation (it’s a core tenet of the dogme approach, after all). Yet conversations in classrooms are necessarily constrained, both by the relative immobility of the participants and by the lack of the kind of stimuli you get simply by taking a walk. ..."

In short, classroom talk (as Leo van Lier has frequently observed) is challenged in terms of contingency and affordances. By contingency, I mean a sense of connectedness – where everything that is said is connected both to what has already been said, and to the context in which it is said – taking context to mean everything from the ‘here-and-now’ to the ‘then-and-there’, i.e. the knowledge and experience that the speakers have in common.

How to participate in an open online course (suggestions from George Siemens)

Sound familiar? 
"The first few weeks of an open online course are the most disorienting. As a learner, you approach the course with expectations that have been defined by previous learning experiences. You look for readings ... Let go of those expectations. An open online course is quite different. You create your own spaces of interaction ..."

 

A great quote! 
"Each of the sensemaking artifacts produced by participants becomes a node in a growing learning and knowledge networks."

Rich Internet Applications (RIA) for language learning & language teachers

Rich Internet Applications (RIA) for language learning & language teachers | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

The goal of the RIA project is to create tools that are informed by language acquisition research, and engage language learners in active learning.

 

RIAs are Tools: The RIA programs should be used as tools. There is no content in them, there is only functionality.The same tool can be used by an advanced Spanish teacher, an introductory Japanese teacher, and a remedial ESL teacher.

 

In the same vein, the same tool can be used to support a variety of language teaching methodologies. One teacher might want to use the interactive exercise creator SMILE to build grammar-translation quizzes. Another might want to have students work together in teams to create games, for the whole class to play together later. The tool simply provides the interactivity. How it is used is up to the teacher.
