Annual Review of Linguistics, 1(1):

Annual Review of Linguistics, 1(1): | TELT | Scoop.it
Linguistics can be defined intensionally, as the scientific study of language, or extensionally, as what linguists do in their professional capacity. Over the past few decades, linguistic research has expanded and diversified into nearly every possible area of language science, and the volume, diversity, and quality of relevant publications have increased in proportion. Recognizing these changes, the Board of Directors of Annual Reviews has decided to add linguistics to their distinguished series of systematic examinations of current scientific literature. We are happy to launch the Annual Review of Linguistics with this first volume.

The goal of the Annual Review of Linguistics is to offer access to significant developments across our increasingly diverse field, including all scientific approaches to the study of speech, language, and communication, as well as significant applications of linguistics in technology, medicine, law, education, and public policy. Articles are written for an audience that is centered on the core disciplines of academic linguistics, but extends to researchers, teachers, and students in all fields that are concerned with the forms and functions of human language. If we succeed in our mission, articles should be of benefit to both specialists and nonspecialists, to experts as well as to students, to teachers of introductory courses, and to scholars in neighboring fields.

Putting Prosody First: Frost & Picavet

Putting Prosody First: Frost & Picavet | TELT | Scoop.it

This paper presents some of the difficulties of teaching languages, in particular English, in the context of LSP/LAP2 programmes in French universities. The main focus of this paper will be the importance of prosody, especially in English, as an area where these difficulties may be addressed. We will outline the various solutions that are currently being put into place as part of the Innovalangues project, a six-year international language teaching and research project headed by Université Stendhal (Grenoble 3), France. The project has substantial funding from the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and its mission is to develop innovative tools and measures to help LSP/LAP learners reach B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). The languages concerned are English, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and possibly French as a foreign language. Initially the project will be focusing on the needs of Grenoble’s students, but the objective is to make the tools and resources developed freely available to the wider community. Oral production and reception are at the heart of Innovalangues. We believe, along with many other researchers, that prosody is key to comprehension and to intelligibility (Kjellin 1999a, Kjellin 1999b, Munro and Derwing 2011, Saito 2012), particularly given the important differences between English and French prosody (Delattre 1965; Hirst and Di Cristo 1998; Frost 2011). In this paper, we will present the particular difficulties inherent in teaching English (and other foreign languages) in the context of ESP/EAP3 in French universities and some of the solutions that we are implementing through this project (Picavet et al., 2012; Picavet et al 2013; Picavet and Frost 2014). These include an e-learning platform for which various tools are being developed, teacher training seminars focusing on prosody and the collection of data for research.

Le corpus en didactique des langues : numéro spécial RDLC (Cahiers de l'Acedle)

Language corpora have long been a staple in linguistic research, and have assumed increasing importance in research and practice in language teaching and learning in recent years. This special issue of Recherches en didactique des langues et des cultures (RDLC) : Les Cahiers de l’Acedle takes corpora as the subject of its "Notion en Questions", since the term covers a wide variety of sometimes contradictory definitions and uses. The papers here attempt to clarify some of the issues and present an overview of the possible uses of corpora in relation to language teaching and learning.

Call for Chapter: Preparing FL teachers for next-generation education

Call for Chapter: Preparing FL teachers for next-generation education | TELT | Scoop.it
It is expected that this volume will help foreign-language researchers as well as teacher-educators to rethink the critical import of the teacher as the decision-maker and pivotal player in any school-based technology implementation. It is also expected to shed light on foreign-language teacher education through its emphasis on capitalizing on diverse digital technologies to enhance teachers’ instruction and students’ learning, as well as promoting teachers’ self-directed professional advancement.


Target Audience

The target audience of this book will include researchers, K-16 teacher-educators, policymakers, and school administrators who are interested in the roles of technology in foreign-language teaching and teacher-education. This book can be used as a textbook or reference book for foreign-language teacher preparation courses and graduate-level courses in technology for second-language teaching and learning. Researchers and teacher-educators who are interested in technology in foreign-language teaching and teacher education, or teacher education in general, may also find this volume a useful resource.

Corpus d'apprenants et acquisition des langues : De Cock & Tyne, 2014

Ce que l’on appelle les "corpus d’apprenants" sont des recueils électroniques de productions orales ou écrites d’apprenants de langue seconde ou étrangère (L2) (Granger, 2004). Ces ensembles de données informatisées sont notamment utilisés dans le cadre de recherches qui explorent certains aspects de l’acquisition d’une L2. La première partie de l’article illustre la contribution d’études basées sur des corpus d’apprenants dans le domaine de l’acquisition des L2. La deuxième traite d’applications pédagogiques concrètes de ce genre d’étude. La troisième porte un regard plus critique sur certains aspects et soulève des points de discussion ou de débat qui ouvrent souvent sur le domaine plus général de l’acquisition des L2 ou sur l’utilisation de corpus pour l’étude de la langue.

Authentic tasks in maths education

Authentic tasks in maths education | TELT | Scoop.it

Harry Webb: "strategies that focus on motivation often miss the mark on all fronts. On the other hand, strategies that break complex tasks down into discrete skills and ensure that students master these before synthesizing them into more complex tasks; these not only deliver gains in basic skills, but gains in problem solving and the students’ self-concept."

Shona Whyte's insight:

Webb invokes research in cognitive psychology by Sweller and colleagues and Anderson and colleagues to support traditional teaching and practice of skills as opposed to ill-defined "authentic" tasks which do not necessarily encourage deeper engagement or processing.

 

I see connections with Whitehead's 3-stage model of learning: romantic, precision, and generalisation stages (http://wp.me/p28EmH-5s), and of course many links with strong and weak version of task-based language teaching.
