A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories [Infographic]

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories [Infographic] | TELT | Scoop.it
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Via Gust MEES, Alazne González, Luciana Viter, Inna Piankovska
Shona Whyte's insight:

Useful for key ideas in learning theory, though perhaps more a demonstration of someone's constructivist/connectivist thoughts on learning/teaching than a useful end product for others.  (Constructiorism => constructionism).

A very visual illustration of learning theory.

SLA research methodology | Call for papers

SLA research methodology | Call for papers | TELT | Scoop.it
We welcome proposals for talks on any aspect of research methodology in second language acquisition, and encourage proposals from all of the diverse methodological standpoints represented in SLA (e.g., classroom-based research, experimental approaches, learner corpora, ecologically-valid approaches, etc.). Proposals may, for example, focus on one or more aspects of research design (i.e., participants, data collection, choice of task, data coding, data analysis), or may address broad questions concerning research methodology. We particularly encourage talks whose aim is to create a dialogue between different methodological traditions within the perspective of a complex approach (see Morin, 1990) which would allow researchers to embrace a variety of relevant parameters. Other potential topics include, but are not limited to: ​ choice of theoretical tools and models reflections on the analysis of variability in interlanguage contributions of (recent) developments in linguistics to research methodology in SLA (e.g., corpus linguistics, neuro/psycholinguistics, etc.) proficiency assessment native-speaker norm qualitative and quantitative approaches reflections on the validity of the results and the potential biases (e.g., observer’s paradox) use of statistics methodological challenges associated with studying multilingual participants

Instructed Second Language Acquisition 1 (1) 2017

Instructed second language acquisition (ISLA): geopolitics, methodological issues, and some major research questions

Michael H. Long

Definitions are proposed for instructed second language acquisition (ISLA) and ISLA research. The quantity of research is partly driven by external geopolitical forces, its quality improved by such methodological developments as the growing deployment of statistical meta-analyses, new technology, especially eyetracking, and new instrumentation, e.g. Hi-Lab, a measure of aptitudes for both explicit and implicit language learning. Three major constraints on the design of L2 instruction are that: (1) the learning task is too large for either explicit or implicit learning alone; (2) direct effects of instruction are limited to manipulations of the linguistic environment, with intended cognitive processes ultimately under learner control; and (3) development of implicit knowledge is the priority. Three learning conditions that speak to what can best be achieved through incidental and intentional language learning are illustrated by recent studies of (1) resetting L1 parameters and dealing with blocking, and (2) instance learning of lexical items and collocations. Comparisons of L2 learning under the three conditions can help resolve long-standing disagreements over the merits of codefocused and meaning-focused instructional approaches.


Situating instructed language acquisition: facts about second language acquisition

Bill VanPatten

What is the relationship between instructed second language acquisition (ISLA) and more general second language acquisition? To what extent is the former informed by the latter? In this essay, I review five facts about second language acquisition involving the nature of mental representation, the slow and ordered acquisition over time, the nature of internal constraints and mechanisms, the role of input, and the observation that most acquisition results in some kind of non-nativeness. I use these facts to ponder underlying assumptions and unasked questions in the research on ISLA. I conclude with some queries regarding the scope and purpose of ISLA.
