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.

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."
