INTERVIEW WITH MARTA GONZÁLEZ-LLORET AND VILSON LEFFA: Building an interface between SLA and Technology

I think that as a SLA researcher, it is very important not to let the technology "blind" your research. So many "new shiny" technologies appear that it is very tempting to focus on the technology itself rather than in the language learning. This is the same for teachers, curriculum developers and administrators. Bringing technology in the language classroom has to be a decision made based on SLA research and conscious pedagogical choices. The technology should follow, or better "accompany" the language teaching methodology and pedagogical choices.

Technology for TBLT: Examples of virtual worlds for language learning

University of Hawai'i Spanish professor Marta Gonzalez-Lloret explains the principles of task-based language teaching (TBLT) and gives examples of technology use for language learners such as virtual and synthetic worlds (Second Life, World of Warcraft).

 

See a demonstration of her collaborative environment for Spanish learners "En busca de Esmeraldes" and another virtual environment for an ESP course for health professionals, plus a Chinese online course
