Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology

My paper on "Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology."  (Actes du colloque FICEL sur l'évolution et professionalisation des enseignants de langues)

 

The paper discusses key competences required for teaching languages with technology, and concludes with examples of projects combining research, pedagogy and technology including:

 

"the EU lifelong learning project iTILT, Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching (Whyte, Cutrim Schmid & van Hazebrouck, 2011). In this project, language researchers and teacher trainers offer professional development in the use of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) to practising language teachers with learners at all levels. After initial training, class sessions at the board are filmed, and followed by debriefing sessions with both teachers and learners. Short video clips of selected lesson episodes are then presented on the project website together with lesson plans, lesson files, and teacher and learner commentary to aid other teachers in using the IWB for language teaching. The project website also includes a variety of related resources and dissemination tools, and as teacher training and data collection proceed, the project partners inform their networks of developments via blogs and social media. Thus teaching, training and research are closely interrelated as the project teachers develop their digital  and pedagogical skills, the researchers observe classroom interaction and teacher development, and trainers create resources for future professional development using feedback from the project teachers."

 

The iTILT website (http://itilt.eu) will soon go live, allowing language teachers and teacher educators access to this free open educational resource on the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in communicative language teaching.

Cite-langage : Cartes des parcours

Cite-langage : Cartes des parcours | TELT | Scoop.it
La ressource « Cité Langage – Trajets dans les sciences du langage » a été conçue à l’Université de Lille SHS en réponse à un appel à projets de l’Université Ouverte des Humanités.

Organisée autour d’une matrice de 27 vidéos assorties de questionnaires-amorces, complétée d’un glossaire et de liens externes, son objectif est de faire découvrir ce que sont les sciences du langage à un public de personnes néophytes s’interrogeant sur ce qu’elles recouvrent : lycéen.ne.s à la recherche d’une poursuite d’études post-baccalauréat, étudiant.e.s en réorientation, tout simplement personnes curieuses de découvrir cette discipline, non enseignée au lycée, à titre de culture générale. Elle se veut également un outil de valorisation des recherches menées dans ce champ disciplinaire et une ressource pédagogique pouvant être exploitée en premier cycle universitaire.

Chaque vidéo a une durée d’environ cinq minutes et répond à des questions telles que :
Pourquoi les humains parlent-ils ?
Est-ce que les animaux ont des langues ?
Peut-on localiser une zone du langage dans le cerveau ?
Une langue, comment ça marche ?
Comment fonctionnent les différentes écritures ?
C’est quoi être bilingue ?

Les vidéos, pour lesquelles ont été sollicités des spécialistes des questions abordées, enseignants-chercheurs à l’Université de Lille SHS et dans d’autres Universités françaises, ou chercheurs auprès du CNRS, sont organisées en trajets offrant une cohérence thématique. Chaque vidéo peut toutefois être visionnée de façon indépendante.

Two Versions of Task-Based Language Teaching

Two Versions of Task-Based Language Teaching | TELT | Scoop.it
This is a written report of a talk I gave to members of the SLB last month. There's quite a lot here; it's a bit "staccato" because it's based on the slides I used in the talk; and it doesn't do justice to Mike Long's version of TBLT. Good, positive start, eh! Both the syllabuses presented here are alternatives to…

Interdisciplinary Research at the Intersection of CALL, NLP, and SLA: Methodological Implications From an Input Enhancement Project

Despite the promise of research conducted at the intersection of computer-assisted language learning (CALL), natural language processing, and second language acquisition, few studies have explored the potential benefits of using intelligent CALL systems to deepen our understanding of the process and products of second language (L2) learning. The strategic use of technology offers researchers novel methodological opportunities to examine how incremental changes in L2 development occur during treatment as well as how the longitudinal impacts of experimental interventions on L2 learning outcomes occur on a case-by-case basis. Drawing on the pilot results from a project examining the effects of automatic input enhancement on L2 learners’ development, this article explores how the use of technology offers additional methodological and analytical choices for the investigation of the process and outcomes of L2 development, illustrating the opportunities to study what learners do during visually enhanced instructional activities.
