Le petit chaperon rouge sur Twitter

Le petit chaperon rouge sur Twitter | TELT | Scoop.it

Le petit chaperon rouge vit dans la grande ville et elle veut aller rendre visite à sa grand-mère dans le village voisin. Elle décide d’envoyer un message privé sur Twitter avec son iPod Touch. Sa grand-mère reçoit le message et lui répond rapidement. Dix secondes maximum, le tweet est lu par le petit chaperon rouge. Elle part avec son panier où elle a mis des raisins, une pomme et un thermos rempli de savoureux chocolat chaud.

New perspectives on teaching and working with languages in the digital era

New perspectives on teaching and working with languages in the digital era | TELT | Scoop.it

Antonio Pareja-Lora, Cristina Calle-Martínez, Pilar Rodríguez-Arancón.


What are the real benefits of applying new technologies to teaching and/or learning? Are they actually also applicable to language teaching and learning? Are CALL, MALL, CLIL, LMOOCs, etc. , as effective as traditional models of language teaching and/or learning? Do they really help language learners? Will language teachers and researchers (or learners) who fail to adapt and apply ICTs to language teaching and/or research (or use ICTs for language learning) be neglected and left aside? The present volume tries to shed a light on these issues. For this reason, it has been divided into three different but fairly interrelated sections . The first aims at describing how information and language technologies are generally applied to language teaching and learning. Its different sections provide detailed information, for instance, about how ICTs are being used in the different levels of face-to-face language learning or in distance language learning and/or e-learning. The second section introduces some new trends in the application of ICTs to language learning, such as MALL or CLIL. Finally, the third section presents how language technologies , i.e. computational linguistics and language resources, are being applied to language teaching and learning.

TEACHING AND LEARNING IN ENGLISH IN HIGHER EDUCATION:
A LITERATURE REVIEW

Higher education instruction in English in non-English speaking countries has become a reality in several countries and contexts. The policy towards the adoption of English as language of medium of instruction (EMI) has led to a situation in which students are faced with the need of coping with learning new content in a language different from their mother tongue and teaching staff needs to deliver their courses in English, which is not their first language in many cases. The present review article focuses on the studies concerning EMI in higher education, reporting on didactical strategies employed by the teaching staff and students to cope with the learning context.

Collaborative poetry translation: Park, 2016

Although translation is part of the bilingual experiences of English language learners, literacy teachers and teacher educators know little about how translation can be used with high school - aged English language learners and with what affordances. Based on discour se data collected from a mixed - grade (grades 11 and 12) sheltered English class in an urban high school, this paper reports on the impact of Poetry Inside Out, a literacy program in which students translate world - class poems from their original language (e .g., Spanish, French, Chinese, etc.) into English. Findings suggest that participation in poetry translation and in structured discussions about poetry and translation can foster students’ semantic awareness; capacity for evidence - based reasoning; and thei r willingness to listen to and learn from classmates. The study’s findings speak to the potential of Poetry Inside Out as a program which recruits English language learners’ emergent bi - and multilingualism as a resource.
