Gilles Le Page's curator insight, September 29, 2013 9:47 AM

Traduction libre d'un extrait :

"Nous devons arrêter de considérer les médias numériques comme une technologie mystérieuse réservée aux initiés, : intégrons-les dans l'enseignement comme un outil de communication naturel.

Refusons l'échapattoire du style :  «Je suis un professeur pas un technicien". ...
... "la technologie" d'aujourd'hui est mobile et omniprésente. 

L'apprentissage peut avoir lieu n'importe où, plutôt que d'être limité à la "classe". Mais nous devons d'abord apprendre à nous connecter.

Students' views of mobile devices for EFL: Nicky Hockly

Students' views of mobile devices for EFL: Nicky Hockly | TELT | Scoop.it

Nicky Hockly's quick-and-dirty survey of attitudes to BYOD reveals"the majority of the class enjoyed using mobile devices (questions 3,7,8,9,17), and would like to continue to do so in the future (question 11).  The majority also felt that using their mobile devices had improved their English (question 8), and their mobile literacy (see question 9)  by familiarising them with new apps such as Chirp, Audioboo, Woices, and new mobile-related concepts such as QR codes – the latter were new to everyone in both groups."  One student hated the whole idea.

Students Talking About Technology: ECAR 2013

Students Talking About Technology: ECAR 2013 | TELT | Scoop.it

From ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

1. First, students have lots of devices, but relatively little incentive or freedom to use them in class

2. Second, two-thirds of students report that their faculty “use technology effectively”

3. Third, the report asserts that “60% of students prefer to keep their academic and social lives separate.”

4. Finally, students prefer that faculty themselves provide instruction in how to use technology, rather than rely on the help desk or online-only documentation.

Shona Whyte's insight:

And the take-away for me: "faculty who incorporate technology in interesting or significant ways will need to continue to budget class time to cover how to use the tech."  °sigh°

Education technologies & Language learner autonomy - Ca' Foscari, Venice

Education technologies & Language learner autonomy - Ca' Foscari, Venice | TELT | Scoop.it

International Seminar, 14th October 2013 - Venice (Italy)

This one-day event is organized by LaDiLS (Laboratory of Didactics of Foreign Languages), as part of the Language Teaching Centre at the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Studies of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

 

The Seminar will reflect on how Technologies favour Language Learner Autonomy, considering relevant issues such as:

how technologies can make students more aware and responsible for their own learning processwhat technological applications better foster language learning autonomy at different age and school levelshow technology can help build a bridge between formal and informal language learning.

The aim of the event is to explore the different aspects connecting Technology and Learner Autonomy in foreign language learning, e.g. to understand the educational value and motivational force of the latest technological devices and applications to be used in class, to discuss empirical studies and practical experiences reporting the effects of the use of those technologies on students’ language competence, to reflect on how all this implies an increase in learner autonomy and, as a consequence, on the way learners approach language learning. The Seminar is open to researchers, teachers, policy makers and language specialists with an interest in educational technologies, learner autonomy and language learning development.

 

Speakers:

Christian Ludwig

Shona Whyte

Luisa Bozzo

Annamaria Cacchione

Maura Zini

Alda Barbi

Shona Whyte's insight:

One-day event in Italy next month on technology and language learner autonomy.
