LE CORPS ET LA VOIX DE L'ENSEIGNANT : THéORIE ET PRATIQUE | Cadet & Tellier

LE CORPS ET LA VOIX DE L'ENSEIGNANT : THéORIE ET PRATIQUE | Cadet & Tellier | TELT | Scoop.it

« Tout comme le comédien, l’enseignant utilise son corps et sa voix comme outils de travail, à la fois en tant que stratégie de transmission et en tant qu’outil d’animation. Si les recherches sur le corps de l’enseignant en éducation et en didactique ont avant tout une coloration psychanalytique, sociologique, philosophique ou anthropologique, celles qui portent sur les techniques de la voix et du corps (gestes, mimiques, postures), comme éléments pédagogiques, demeurent marginales » (extrait de l’avant-propos, p. 7)

Analysing conversational engagement in online discussion tasks: Breffni O'Rourke

A discourse analytic framework for conversational engagement in online discussion tasks
Shona Whyte's insight:

I heard this presentation at EuroCALL in the Netherlands this summer.  Very interesting work on the characterisation of online interactions in discourse analytic terms.  One practical goal is a framework that allows teachers and researchers to distinguish successful from less successful online interaction, which at present we feel intuitively but struggle to demonstrate.

Learning Theory & SLA: undergraduate course

Learning Theory & SLA: undergraduate course | TELT | Scoop.it

 This course investigates the learning of foreign, or second, languages from four different perspectives, using an online e-learning resource to explore behaviourism, cognitivism, constructivism and socio-constructivism.

 

The course presents each theory in terms of general learning, then as it applies to language, including major figures and key concepts for each.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Getting ready for the new semester - undergraduate course on learning theories and how they influence different approaches to teaching and learning second languages

Multicultural London English

Multicultural London English | TELT | Scoop.it

The speaker displays many of the features of a British accent known widely as Multicultural London English (MLE), such as producing vowels in e.g. FACE and PRICE as monophthongs, not dropping /h/ sounds (/h/-dropping is common in London accent Cockney) and pronouncing voiced dental fricatives in e.g. the as a [d].  There are glottal stops, which are less common in Afro-Caribbean or African English accents, and /l/-vocalisation. The speaker also has a more syllable-timed speech rhythm; instead of pronouncing the phrase from all walks of life as /frəm ɔːl wɔːks əv laɪf/ it sounds more like [frɒm ɔː wɔːks ɒv lɐːf], with a full vowel in each syllable.

Second language teaching methods: Geoff Jordan's picks

Second language teaching methods: Geoff Jordan's picks | TELT | Scoop.it

Geoffrey Jordan explains why the silent method, suggestopedia, and community language learning should be consigned to the history books, recommends multiple intelligences get the same treatment, and comes out in favour of task-based learning combined with a genuinely learner-centred approach (process syllabus).  

Shona Whyte's insight:

Cogently and entertainingly argued as usual, with links to further resources.
