How the internet is changing English

How the internet is changing English | Language Learning: Digital tools and virtual spaces | Scoop.it
Online, English has become a common language between users from around the world. In the process, the language itself is changing.
Patricia Daniels's insight:

Many of us are aware of new words regularly being created and their relationship with technological developments. But are we aware, as educators in the field of language learning, of how the English language is otherwise evolving and how this will influence pedagogical approaches, learning design and content and resources that we use within our teaching contexts?

The Creative and the Curious: When learners roam free

Keynote presentation from the EDEN Research Workshop, KU Leuven, Belgium, 22 October 2012...

 

Wow!  I don't even know the context for this keynote, but I think it is rich ecosystem with lots of deep niches for exploring.  Teachers need to read this for the sake of their learners.

This is an evocative slideshare that makes me wish I had a bit fuller context. Viewing this makes me think I am climbing a tree in winter time. I can see the beautiful bare branching limbs, but I am missing the leaves. Not complaining, just noting.

Skype takes English teaching to the next level

Shona Whyte:

This article allows Jason West to publicise his (commercial) online ESL courses, but this is the quote that caught my eye:

"If you build up a group of ELPers (we call them English Language Philanthropists), say ten to fifteen around the world in different time zones there will always be someone friendly to practice with online when you have done a lesson. Or just have three ELPers you have regular practice times with each week."

Patricia Daniels's insight:

Despite technology being embraced in many educational fields, we musn't assume that all students and teachers have the appropriate digital literacies to use information and communication technologies effectively. I'm pleased to see that this topic is still being discussed, researched  and reevaluated in the light of actual technological developments.
