Learner Language: Tools for Teachers | Tarone & Swierzbin, 2010

"Learner language is the constantly changing ability students have to communicate as they learn a new language. It provides an index of students progress, allowing teachers to determine how to best educate them. By analyzing examples of learner language, students develop skills to address it when they are teaching."

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This.

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's insight:

I must admit I fail to understand teachers who ban Wikipedia... why can't they teach students to use it wisely instead of banning it altogether?

Hmmm... Worth knowing about. Still can't cite it, but a good place to start for background info.

Sarah Rach-Sovich's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:06 AM

A great starting point - track it back to see where it might have come from.

Lorena Swetnam's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:43 AM

Teach students and teachers how Wikipedia can be a starting point in the research process, not the final destination.
