PRIMA - La langue allemande dans la vie professionnelle | Portail UOH | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Cours d'allemand "professionnel" (50h, B1) sur l'Université Ouverte des Humanités.  Bettina Rheinert et Ingrid Percebois (UPV-M) et Peter Tischer (Université de la Sarre) valorisent une ressource pré-existante pour l'apprentissage de l'allemand dans un projet porté par l'Université de Lorraine.

 

"Prima est une ressource pédagogique pour l'apprentissage de l'allemand qui poursuit un double objectif culturel et linguistique.

Les utilisateurs d'un niveau B1 pourront suivre le parcours de Jean-Marc, un jeune Français, dont le but est l'insertion et la recherche d'un emploi dans un pays germanophone.

L'action se déroule à Sarrebruck (Land de Sarre). La narration, sous forme de roman photo en neuf épisodes, se fonde sur des actes de communication authentiques. Les situations vécues par l'ensemble des personnages sont vraisemblables.

Bon séjour à Sarrebruck en compagnie de Jean-Marc !"

Video-Based Response & Revision: Dialogic Instruction Using Video and Web 2.0 Technologies

Video-Based Response & Revision: Dialogic Instruction Using Video and Web 2.0 Technologies | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Description of methodology for using technology to support and research the development of dialogic instruction in a collaboratively oriented teacher education course.

 

Anne Heintz, Carlin Borsheim, Samantha Caughlan, & Mary M. Juzwik; Michigan State University

 

Michael B. Sherry; Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania

 

Abstract

This article documents the curricular decisions made by a teacher educator research team whose guiding theoretical focus for intern practice is dialogic instruction. Over a 2-year sequence, teaching interns used video and Web 2.0 technologies to respond critically to and revise their teaching practices in collaboration with peers and instructors. This article describes how a focus on dialogic instruction and an adoption of a multiliteracies pedagogy guided the implementation and use of technologies within the project. Through multiple examples of curriculum, including excerpts from course materials, screencasts of the adopted networking platform, Voicethread, and video of class sessions, the authors describe how a focus on the dialogic creates spaces for interactions that allow responsive and revisionary attitudes toward not only teaching practices, but the potential and place of technologies in teacher education.

Perceptions of the IWB for language teaching: iTILT

Shona Whyte:

One or two slides from our presentation on our European project iTILT (interactive Technologies in Language Teaching http://itilt.eu) co-authored with project partners Gary Beauchamp and Emily Hillier and delivered on the final day of the EuroCALL conference in Gothenburg, Sweden.

 

A write-up will appear in the conference proceedings scheduled for December 2012, just around the time our video clips of language teaching with the interactive whiteboard go live.  

 

After piloting at the start of the academic year, the site will be opened for free public access to our bank of some 200 classroom illustrations in different languages, contexts, and proficiency levels, allowing language teachers and trainers to see the IWB in use and read associated comments by teachers and learners, as well as download lesson plans and materials.

Shona Whyte:

High school social studies teacher Spiro Bolos guest blogs on Richard Byrnes' Free Technology for Teachers website on combining low-text Powerpoint slides with Voicethread or Google Apps comment options to make lectures less "one-way" by integrating "student voices."

 

In the foreign language classroom, this technique could be employed to improve interaction around student-created presentations also.

Shona Whyte:

This seems like a trivial detail, but any teacher who has tried to get participants to make profiles which will help you identify them face-to-face (rather than upload photos of their cats, babies, or cars) will see the value.  It takes no time at all to upload a photo, choose your cartoon effect, and save the result.

May I also add Present.Me that allows you to attach a video of yourself presenting to your powerpoint presentation. I use it to send to my class when I cannot be there for their lessons. Genuis.
