An Invitation to CALL: Hubbard

An Invitation to CALL: Hubbard | TELT | Scoop.it

An Invitation to CALL is a website providing a short introduction to the field of Computer-Assisted Language Learning, designed originally as a supplement to in-class instruction. Specifically, this website has grown out of a "mini course" I have taught for over ten years as part of an ESL methodology class at Stanford (Linguistics 291).  The present site makes the material available to a wider audience for general reference, self-instruction, and in-service or pre-service training.

 

Computers have become so pervasive in the rest of our lives that it is important for us as language teachers to understand their role in language instruction.  Without such a foundation, it is difficult to make informed judgments about how to incorporate computers into language classes to make certain aspects of student learning more engaging, efficient, and/or effective. Ideally, a language teacher being trained today should either have one or more full courses in CALL or be engaged in a professional training program where the integration of technology into language teaching permeates the whole curriculum. Over time that ideal may be met, but currently CALL training is spotty at best. Furthermore, many competent practicing teachers are interested in learning more about CALL but lack the means to fulfill that interest. This site aims to provide one such resource.

 

This heavily revised version of the course was new in 2012, and has had updates in 2013, 2014, and 2015. The previous version is still available at www.stanford.edu/~efs/callcourse for those who might be interested.

Shona Whyte's insight:

This looks like a pretty thorough and well-organised introduction to the field from one of its leading figures.

Randy Rebman's curator insight, May 27, 2015 8:04 PM

Philip Hubbard explains the use of digital curation in relation to curating Ted Talk videos for a listening/speaking course at Stanford University. As an EAP instructor, I found his criteria and procedures for collecting talks relevant to my course. Hubbard looks at related themes to his course, speaking rate, vocabulary profile (using lextutor) and unusual phrases to help determine talks for his curated list. He argues that learners can use this information if adequately trained.
