Language teaching videos: Touring a French City

"The video library excerpts capture the range of foreign language teaching practices shown in the collection. You will see students in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms studying eight different languages. You'll see the students communicating with one another and with their teacher, learning culturally rich content, making connections to other disciplines, comparing cultures, and using the language in real-life contexts."

Shona Whyte's insight:

The Annenberg Foundation has this series of edited classroom videos showing examples of activities taught in second language classrooms with learner and teacher commentaries.  For professional development, there are also questions to guide teachers in their analysis of the examples (French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Russian).

Teaching English to Young Learners: Supporting the Case for the Bilingual Native English Speaker Teacher

(2016). Teaching English to Young Learners: Supporting the Case for the Bilingual Native English Speaker Teacher. Classroom Discourse: Vol. 7, No. 3, pp. 221-238. doi: 10.1080/19463014.2016.1192050
Shona Whyte's insight:
We will show that in the context of the young learner classroom, teachers who know the children’s L1 have a greater repertoire of teaching skills and so can provide more language learning opportunities for language learning. This reality, we believe, supports the case for employing bilingual teachers wherever possible for the young learner classroom.

Applying Corpus Tools to EAP Instruction

Applying Corpus Tools to EAP Instruction | TELT | Scoop.it
by Mat Terrett My interest in the use of corpora for EAP began when I first heard about Coxhead’s (2000) Academic Word List and was further piqued when I read Hyland’s (2009) corpus-based argument for greater specificity in EAP teaching. This provided a focus for my own research through which I came to believe that an…

60 years of ELT journal: Richard Smith

As we look back over 60 years of ELT(J) , and of ELT itself, it should also be acknowledged that these were, in many respects, years of autonomous, experience- based but principled exploration, and that at their origins, in their antecedents, as well as for most of their own history, both UK-based ELT and ELT(J) have placed the theorization of practical experience, much more than top-down application of background theory, at the centre of their concerns

INTERVIEW WITH MARTA GONZÁLEZ-LLORET AND VILSON LEFFA: Building an interface between SLA and Technology

I think that as a SLA researcher, it is very important not to let the technology "blind" your research. So many "new shiny" technologies appear that it is very tempting to focus on the technology itself rather than in the language learning. This is the same for teachers, curriculum developers and administrators. Bringing technology in the language classroom has to be a decision made based on SLA research and conscious pedagogical choices. The technology should follow, or better "accompany" the language teaching methodology and pedagogical choices.
Shona Whyte's insight:
Interesting discussion of relations between theory and practice, research and pedagogy, plus references with links

Bologna Oct 2017 — International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) Conference

Bologna Oct 2017 — International Association for Dialogue Analysis (IADA) Conference | TELT | Scoop.it
The 2017 International Association for Dialogue Analysis conference (Bologna, October 11th-14th, 2017) welcomes empirical and methodological extended abstracts and full papers from different disciplinary perspectives that focus on dialogue and interaction as carriers of, and tools for culture, social organization, moral horizons, identities and change. The notion of action is at the core of the conference main theme: the contributors are asked to focus on dialogue and social interaction as - at the same time - presupposing and producing the crucial dimensions of the world we live in. Theoretical papers are more than welcome insofar as they provide some empirical illustration of the paper’s theoretical point(s).

Social dynamics in open educational language practice, Alsic 2016

What kind of social dynamics emerge in open educational practices (OEP) involving the learning of languages? What roles can OEP play in language learning contexts in which individual and collaborative learner trajectories move across learning practices? This collection of papers approaches these questions by offering theoretical insights and empirical evidence to the field of Open Education and Open Educational Resources (OER). The originality of the collection lies in its emphasis on the social dynamics that arise in open learning practice. Although open education advocates "give the battle" for openness (Weller, 2014), very little research is being conducted on the way social dynamics promote open practices, especially in the area of language education and multilingualism. 2In this group of papers, we aim to fill this gap in research and discuss implications for practices by exploring the role played by social dynamics, consequences, and conditions for open learning expansion, by identifying challenges for researchers, teachers and learners, and in particular by critically examining language practices afforded to groups in open educational language practices.
