Teacher education and ICT integration: Jozef Colpaert

Teacher education and ICT integration: Jozef Colpaert | TELT | Scoop.it
Reassuring lies versus inconvenient truths.One of the major challenges in teacher education is to convince pre-service teachers, our students, that they should (become able to) determine for themselves which technologies to use, when, where, how and why. Preferably in a methodological and justifiable way. This provocative statement stems from two conflicting phenomena. On the one hand, technology is evolving so quickly that it does not make sense to build a course around specific systems or applications as they might have become obsolete once our students start to teach in the real world. On the other hand, our students expect their professors to explain in detail which technologies to use and, more importantly, how to use them. Students in teacher education are often reluctant (or afraid?) to think for themselves, and false assumptions and myths permeate their vision on the role of ICT in learning and teaching.In this presentation Jozef Colpaert will present and discuss the inconvenient truths he has been confronted with over the last two decades. He will show how periods of hypes and myths alternated with periods of common sense, and how current beliefs can be classified under ‘blurred ontologies’: flipped classrooms, digital natives, blended learning, MOOCs, digital pedagogy, etc.EuroCALL Teacher Education SIG Workshop Nice, 22-23 May, 2014

Krashen’s Monitor Model: It’s Crap

Krashen’s Monitor Model: It’s Crap | TELT | Scoop.it
In the light of Krashen’s reply to my criticisms, I’m sorry to say that my opinion of what is known as “The Monitor Model” has not changed in any significant way.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Follow this link to a series of exchanges between Geoff Jordan and Stephen Krashen on the latter's 1980s theory of second language learning which probably helped the Communicative Language Teaching approach more than any other.  Big at the box office though not a critical success, as Jordan demonstrates again here.

Survey on inferring emotional states in English videos: Birbeck/Utrecht research

Survey on inferring emotional states in English videos: Birbeck/Utrecht research | TELT | Scoop.it

I am a research master student in Linguistics at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and I need you for a research project I am conducting for my thesis.


Could I ask you to participate in this fun research on how people are able to infer the emotional state of their interlocutor? It is a follow-up of a survey in which participants were asked to guess (+ rate the intensity of) the emotion displayed by an actress in a couple of short video-recordings in English. In the present version, the video recordings have been replaced by audio-recordings, which might render the task more difficult.

We are looking for both native and nonnative speakers of English; all levels of proficiency are welcome.

Please do *NOT* participate in the present survey if you have already filled in the previous version of this questionnaire some weeks/months ago (you would recognize the first page)

Link to the survey: http://survey.hum.uu.nl/index.php?sid=96948&lang=en

Many thanks in advance for participating in this research project that I am conducting under Prof. Jean-Marc Dewaele's supervision (Birkbeck College, University of London).

Best,
Pernelle Lorette
