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.

Colloque PERL : Entre présence et distance - pratiques pédagogiques en langues à l'université

Colloque PERL : Entre présence et distance - pratiques pédagogiques en langues à l'université | TELT | Scoop.it
Ce colloque a pour objectif d'étudier les possibilités et les usages du numérique dans l'enseignement/apprentissage des langues à l'université au sens large. Il permettra, en particulier, d’examiner les propositions de pédagogie universitaire grâce aux outils numériques dans un objectif de personnalisation et de responsabilisation de l'apprentissage. Dans la même perspective, il questionnera la pertinence et l’effet des dispositifs de formation et d'accompagnement des enseignant-e-s de langues dans des pratiques numériques d'enseignement hybrides ou 100 % à distance. Enfin, il permettra d’envisager la possibilité de mutualiser les ressources et l'ingénierie pédagogique pour offrir de nouvelles perspectives et répondre aux besoins de l'enseignement supérieur comme, par exemple, l'introduction des corpus (Boulton & Tyne, 2014) ou, encore, l'étude des besoins pédagogiques pour mieux cibler le développement des outils et des plateformes d'enseignement/apprentissage hybride ou à distance.

Beall’s List of Predatory Publishers 2017 | TELT | Scoop.it
by Jeffrey Beall, January 3, 2017. Each year at this time I formally announce my updated list of predatory publishers. Because the publisher list is now very large, and because I now publish four, continuously-updated lists, the annual releases do not include the actual lists but instead include statistical and explanatory data about the lists…

CFP formulaic language: TESL Canada Journal


Call for Papers 2017 Special Issue of TESL Canada Journal Formulaic Language in English language acquisition and teaching Guest Editor: David Wood, PhD

Formulaic language is a linguistic phenomenon which is basic to human communication. The term refers to multiword units, which may be continuous or not, which have a single meaning or function in communication, and which are probably prefabricated or stored and retrieved mentally as if a single word . Learners struggle with formulaic sequences and, for example, often fail to interpret their meanings accurately, even when given ample contextual clues .

While the body of research on formulaic language is large and growing in areas such as psycholinguistic processing, analysis of the role of formulaic language in specific genres and registers of language, and extraction from texts using corpus analysis tools, there are a number of issues yet to be addressed fully in researching the teaching and acquisition of formulaic language. For example, how can we be sure that acquisition of specific formulaic sequences is adequate in causing general language gain? Are there particular strategies which learners can be taught which will help them to be more readily capable of perceiving and integrating formulaic sequences in their own language repertoire without explicit teaching? Similarly, how can we be sure that our instructional techniques have lasting effects? Clearly, the teaching of formulaic language is an area still ripe for investigation by researchers and teachers alike.

This Special Issue of TESL Canada Journal will include papers sharing a focus on the teaching and acquisition of formulaic language, and may present empirical studies or literature reviews with fresh and practical conclusions. Book reviews and practical “In the classroom” short papers will also be included.

To review Author Guidelines and the three categories of Research, In the Classroom, and Perspectives articles, please refer to http://www.teslcanadajournal.ca/index.php/tesl/about/submissions.

As part of the submission process, authors are required to download the TESL Canada Journal Submission Form on that page and to send it to teslcan@ualberta.ca as an attachment, along with their manuscript.

Questions regarding this special issue should be directed to teslcan@ualberta.ca. Deadline:

Déjà vu? A decade of research on language laboratories, television and video in language learning

The developments in the last ten years in the form of DVD, streaming video, video on demand, interactive television and digital language laboratories call for an assessment of the research into language teaching and learning making use of these technologies and the learning paradigms underpinning them. This paper surveys research on language teaching and learning using these and older technologies since 1999, and maps out some pointers for future research. The evidence suggests that research on video and language learning using DVD and other recent technologies is already well established, bringing out a number of issues for further study. In contrast, research-led implementation of the enhanced functionality of digital language laboratories is hardly in its infancy and much language laboratory use is marginal at best.

MultiTAL NLP Tool

The MultiTal NLP tool infrastructure
Driss Sadoun, Satenik Mkhitaryan, Damien Nouvel, Mathieu Valette ERTIM, INALCO, Paris, France
firstname.lastname@inalco.fr

Abstract T

his paper gives an overview of the MultiTal project, which aims to create a research infrastructure that ensures long-term distribution of NLP tools descriptions. The goal is to make NLP tools more accessible and usable to end-users of different disciplines. The infrastructure is built on a meta-data scheme modelling and standardising multilingual NLP tools documentation. The model is conceptualised using an OWL ontology. The formal representation of the ontology al- lows us to automatically generate organised and structured documentation in different languages for each represented tool.
