The role of qualitative approaches to research in CALL contexts: Closing in on the learner’s experience: Levy 2015

The article considers the role of qualitative research methods in CALL through describing a series of examples. These examples are used to highlight the importance and value of qualitative data in relation to a specific research objective in CALL. The use of qualitative methods in conjunction with other approaches as in mixed method research designs are a particular focus. It is argued that qualitative methods are especially effective when used in this way. The discussion also aims to elaborate upon the role of qualitative approaches within CALL specifically, as a domain for research study with particular attributes that require a qualitative orientation. Here the use of electronic dictionaries is considered. Dictionary use is suited to such a discussion because it occurs frequently in everyday life, suggesting a qualitative approach, as well as in research studies that are strictly controlled, as in a quantitative approach. The contrast is instructive and helps demonstrate the respective strengths and limitations of each method. Also central to the discussion is the language learner. A number of the studies described emphasize the importance of listening to the students’ voice in the qualitative component (e.g., Conole, 2008; Jones, 2003). It is in the unpacking of what students actually do moment-by-moment in CALL tasks and activities that best illustrate the strengths of qualitative methods in enhancing our understanding of mediated learning and thereby driving productive research agendas.

Le numérique en éducation : une perspective sociocritique

Alors que les discours médiatiques et politiques ne cessent de bruire des promesses du numérique pour l’éducation (l’inflation autour des MOOCs en constituant un nouvel exemple), cette journée d’étude vise à structurer une perspective émergente, la perspective sociocritique, propice pour envisager le numérique en éducation complémentairement aux approches traditionnellement centrées sur la salle de classe.

Moving a step further from “integrative CALL” Gimeno, 2015

Moving a step further from “integrative CALL” Gimeno, 2015 | TELT | Scoop.it

Moving a step further from “integrative CALL”. What's to come?. . 

 

This paper reflects upon the evolution of technology-enhanced language learning throughout the past two decades based on the author's own experience and how Information and Communications Technologies have played a prominent role on how language teaching pedagogies have evolved alongside the technologies themselves. Reference is made to the milestones that have marked the evolution of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and how future trends are developing. The author discusses her vision of CALL and develops the concept of “atomised CALL”, a theory first introduced in 2013. Atomised CALL describes the field of CALL from 2010 onwards, i.e. from Mark Warschauer's definition of “integrative CALL”. In relation to Bax's theory about the “normalisation” of CALL, the author defends that, as long as technology continues to evolve and new gadgets appear on the market, there will always be a place for CALL developers and authors to find the optimum way of pedagogically exploiting these forever-emerging technological developments.

Social Media and CMC Corpora for the eHumanities: Rennes, 23-4 Oct

Social Media and CMC Corpora for the eHumanities: Rennes, 23-4 Oct | TELT | Scoop.it

The first international research days (IRDs) on Social Media and CMC Corpora for the eHumanities will be held in Rennes, France on 23-24th October 2015 and will focus on communication and interactions stemming from networks such as the Internet or telecommunications, as well as mono and multimodal, synchronous and asynchronous communications. The focus of the IRD will encompass different CMC genres. These include, but are not limited to, discussion forums, email, SMS, text chat, wiki discussions, discussions in multimodal and/or 3D environments.

The aim of the IRDs is to bring together researchers who have collected CMC data and who wish to organize and share them for research purposes. The IRDs will focus on the process of buidling CMC corpora including annotation and analysis processes as well as the  questions of ethics and rights raised by publishing CMC corpora as open data.  We invite researchers who are concerned with the analysis of various types on CMC data and corpora for linguistic or applied linguistic purposes to submit paper presentations.

Deutsch-Französische Forscherdialog: Austausch für die Lehrer von morgen - DAAD | TELT | Scoop.it
International über den Lehrerberuf diskutiert wurde auf einer Veranstaltung des vom DAAD Paris initiierten „Deutsch-Französischen Forscherdialogs“.

 

Dr. Shona Whyte, Fachdidaktikerin für Englisch an der Universität Nizza, fasste das Anforderungsprofil für einen guten Lehrer so zusammen: Kommunikation und Interaktion, Distanz zur eigenen Rolle, Austausch mit Kollegen und ständige Fortbildung. Fertige Rezepte sind das alles nicht, weshalb Whyte abschließend mit „Folge deinem eigenen Weg“ wieder die Lehrerpersönlichkeit und deren kreatives Potenzial herausstellte.

The changing use of video in teaching and learning : CAMELOT

During this presentation, Sally will talk about how and why video is increasingly seen as a useful teaching tool. She will trace the changes that are taking place in relation to the use of video for teaching and learning and provide several examples from different applications in different parts of Europe. Many of the examples she will show are based on entries received in the annual Medea Awards and she will use these examples as a way to highlight what can constitute excellence on the use of video for teaching and learning.

Kris van den Branden keynote: Task design and CALL conference

Kris van den Branden keynote: Task design and CALL conference | TELT | Scoop.it

What can CALL learn from task-based language teaching? This intriguing question (posted on the conference website) will be the starting point for my presentation. Using authentic examples, I will critically discuss the principles and practice of task-based language teaching (TBLT), which has become the dominant approach to second language teaching in many countries (at least in governmental and school policy papers). What basically is a task? And why do so many applied linguists claim language learning can be enhanced by inviting students to perform functional, meaningful tasks? How can teachers and task designers integrate a focus on form in meaningful tasks? What is the role of the teacher in task-based language teacher? And what kinds of revolutionary, exciting perspectives does the integration of modern technology in task-based language teaching have to offer to language teachers and learners alike? I will provide answers to these questions, based on the available research into the practice of task-based design and task-based teaching as it takes place in authentic classrooms around the world. These answers will pave the way for an exploration of the optimal integration of CALL and TBLT.
