Learning and Teaching Foreign Languages | Portail UOH

Learning and Teaching Foreign Languages | Portail UOH | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Four approaches to teaching and learning languages are presented first in terms of general learning and then with respect to language-specific theories. The resource is relevant to undergraduate and graduate students of foreign languages and/or linguistics and may be used in pre- or in-service training of language teachers at all levels (primary, secondary, university). Major figures and key concepts are presented for each theory, and learning activities are proposed throughout, including illustrations from the second language classroom. Comprehension of the material can be checked via quizzes and reflective activities, and a timeline affords a chronological overview of the resource.

The Extensive Reading Pages

The Extensive Reading Pages | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

"This site is a repository for information on Extensive Reading, with an emphasis on its application to Second or Foreign Language Learning."

 

Thomas Robb has saved this material from a number of JALT conferences.  You can find reading resources and teaching aids, links to research supporting extensive reading in second language learning and teaching (Bell, Krashen, Waring), and advice on setting up an extensive reading programme.

 

Worth a look if you haven't come across these arguments, or for teachers who want to get their learners reading more.

Sandy Millin - Go online: getting your students to use Internet resources | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

Sandy Millin says "Ultimately, we shouldn’t force our students to use technology if they don’t really want to. It doesn’t suit everyone. However, if we at least show them what’s out there and give them the chance to experiment with it, students can make their own decisions about whether or not to use the tools."

 

A good selection of tools and activities for students to exploit in class and out, with computers, tablets, or smart phones.

Re-envisioning Modern Pedagogy: Educators as Curators

Two professors of communication tackle the interface between curating and teaching.  Of course this is easier if you're teaching communication, since the medium is the message. 

 

For my concerns - teaching foreign languages and training FL teachers - it's clear that there are links between what I curate and what and how I teach: I put things on this Scoop.it for later use in class, and share my students' findings on here too.  And setting the students loose in social media helps them understand the field and become more independent professionals.

 

But I still fear that in the headlong rush forward to find, scoop, post and tweet, the reflective part of the educational enterprise may get trampled underfoot.
