Teaching Languages with Technology

Teaching Languages with Technology | TELT | Scoop.it
This book draws on theories of second language acquisition (SLA) to illustrate how interactive white board technology can be exploited to support language acquisition. It examines interaction, collaboration and negotiation of meaning and focus on form in the communicative language classroom in primary, secondary and vocational schools.

In recent years new technologies have been incorporated into second and foreign language education as tools for implementing teaching methodologi

Second language interaction at the IWB: AILA paper

Second language interaction at the IWB: AILA paper | TELT | Scoop.it

This paper investigates second language interaction at the interactive whiteboard (IWB). Video-recorded lessons of eleven French and German teachers of EFL were analysed for use of IWB features but also language interaction, using a 4-level scale (drill, display, simulation and communication) to capture learners’ opportunities to use English.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Tweaking our slides for our AILA presentation next week.  Euline will be giving our paper; she says it's the only IWB presentation.

Une mise en pratique de l'un des outils Tice qui est le TBI c'est à dire un tableau interactif tactile avec lequel nous pouvons jouer, et imaginer de nombreuses activité pour les élèves. Son étendue pédagogique est intéressante dans la mesure où l'utilisation du TBI est ludique. Il s'agit d'enseigner tout en s'amusant "Ensenar deileitando". Ainsi les élèves apprennent mieux et plus vite.

Learning from international experiences with interactive whiteboards: Hennessy & London 2013

Shona Whyte's insight:

Key findings (p. 11):

- IWBs as such have no transformative power on pedagogy

- Professional learning about IWBs and their effective use takes time

- Because their impact on pupils is mediated by their use by teachers, there are no robust, clear-cut positive effects on learning associated with IWBs as such

ik vind dit een handige tool, omdat je niet zoveel hoeft in te stellen. Het werkt gewoon. Je iPad werkst als een soort server waarop je met een andere computer die op een beamer is aangesloten connect. Alles wat je schrijft op het 'whiteboard' van je iPad verschijnt op het bord. Je kunt ook schermen opslaan en een kopie maken.

Gewoon eens proberen!

Shona Whyte's insight:

All good sense and relevant to language teaching with the IWB.  I'd only quibble with #7: if you want the students to work collaboratively, don't turn it on.  Students can work collaboratively at the IWB, without teacher supervision, and while other learners are involved in different activities.
