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

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

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.
