EUROCALL 2015: Call for papers

EUROCALL 2015: Call for papers | iwb's | Scoop.it
Critical CALL

The theme of this year’s conference is Critical CALL, fostering the notion that we now want to step back and critically appraise the field of CALL, to unpack and examine some of the assumptions that may have become ingrained in our practice, and also to reflect on the state of CALL and language pedagogy. There is also a need to take a critical stance and question what it is we are doing and whose interests we might be serving, since technology is not neutral, and nor is education. Inspired by those who advocate critical approaches to second language teaching, learning and assessment, especially when mediated by technology, we are particularly interested in contributions that look at the interdependence between language learning, power relationships and social change.

GIANFRANCO MARINI's curator insight, November 5, 3:08 PM

The Google Bookmark manager è un sistema per gestire i bookmark che assomiglia per certi versi a Pinterest, in quanto si configura come uno strumento visuale.

 

E' possibile in modo molto semplice ordinare le pagine che ci interessano, poiché il sistema di gestione è integrato nel browser.

 

Il funzionamento è simile a Pearltrees, si creano cartelle, entro le quali è possibile o creare altre cartelle per classificare in modo più preciso e dettagliato i nostri segnalibri, o si salvano i segnalibri dai quali sarà poi possibile accedere alle pagine.

 

E' possibile editare le cartelle e i bookmarks personalizzandoli (nome, descrizione, annotazioni, pubblico/privato, ecc.). E' possibile condividere le cartelle rendendole pubbliche.

 

Si tratta di un interessante strumento di content curation che può rivelarsi molto utile per tenere sotto controllo il sovraccarico informativo cui si è costantemente esposti navigando in rete.

 

Per installare questa funzionalità occorre attivarla dal chrome web store a questo indirizzo https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/bookmark-manager/gmlllbghnfkpflemihljekbapjopfjik

Here is a new tool (at least to me) that allows you to create online content. In fact, you can get an educator account and have students also create content (but make sure to have permission from parents for students under the age of 13).

You can get an educator account or your school may want to sign-up. School wide features include:

  • Lesson tracking (allowing you to see students progress)
  • Lesson sharing and collaboration
  • Common Core, NextGen Science and custom standards – helping you align lessons

You can easily

  • Add, insert and delete resources from the web
  • Group resources, lessons and organize your students
  • Add questions to videos

Take a few minutes to click through to the website and check it out. You may find yourself creating a new lesson!
