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).

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.

Reporting ELT research through comics: Darren Elliott

Elliott: "There is an undeniable element of gimmickry in publishing research in comic form. This may be helpful in getting your work actually read; in such a crowded field it is good to stand out. However, it remains to be seen whether such work can be taken seriously. Sousani s (2015) demonstrated how an entire doctoral thesis in philosophy and visual communication could be produced in graphic form to great effect, but are comics welcome in language education research?

Instructed Second Language Acquisition

Instructed Second Language Acquisition is a peer-reviewed Journal that, twice a year, publishes research with a number of implications for language instruction. Second language acquisition is a rich and varied enterprise, carried out by researchers, whose interests and training often lie in broader disciplines of linguistics, psychology, sociology, and education. Second language research findings might have a direct application to instructional decisions or provide insights into the learning process that serves as a resource to inform teaching practice. Knowing how languages are learned will help language instructors develop a more innovative and effective way to teach a language and to create the necessary conditions for learners to learn more efficiently and appropriately. The overall aim of this Journal is to provide an opportunity for researchers, second and foreign language educators, and other language practitioners and policy makers to publish and read second language acquisition research that has direct relevance and impact for language teaching. Established in 2016, Instructed Second Language Acquisition, the journal is a forum for reporting and for critical discussion of language research and practice across a wide range of languages and international contexts. It welcomes quantitative and qualitative research to address the role of external manipulation (e.g., instruction, learner self-directed learning, input manipulation) on second language development.

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.
