L'interaction en langue cible au TBI | itilt.eu

L'interaction en langue cible au TBI | itilt.eu | TELT | Scoop.it

"L'approche communicative, orientée plus vers le sens que vers la forme des mots, et l'approche actionnelle, ou apprentissage par la tâche, sous-tendent l'enseignement des langues secondes à l'heure actuelle.  Il est donc utile de voir des exemples d'activités de classe où le TBI est utilisé pour étayer la communication spontanée dans des contextes authentiques.  Cependant, ce type de communication n'est ni possible ni souhaitable à tous les stades d'acquisition et dans toutes les phases d'une séance ou séquence d'enseignement.  Dans les exemples qui suivent, nous observons l'usage du TBI dans de différents types d'interactions qui vont d'un entraînement à l'utilisation d'éléments linguistiques hors contexte communicatif, en passant par des activités plus ouvertes, pour arriver à une vraie communication en langue cible." 

Shona Whyte's insight:

Des exemples de pratique de classe de langue au TBI qui montrent des niveaux d'interaction variés, allant de l'écouter-répéter du modèle comportementaliste à la communication authentique de Krashen et des constructivistes.

Reconceptualising interactional groups: Rance-Roney 2010

Shona Whyte:

 

Here's a very practical discussion of group formation for second language interaction by Judith Rance-Roney in the English Teaching Forum 2010.  It begins with some second language research supporting the importance of interaction for language acquisition, then looks at a variety of ways of grouping students to maximise their learning opportunities.  It's based on ESL for higher education in the US, but applicable to foreign language contexts also for the most part.

 

I've picked out some do's and don'ts which I think are valuable:

 

DO
- consider fixed groups, saving planning time and allowing learners to get to know each other

- also consider a roster of groupings, to make different groups for different tasks/topics

- group students by proficiency; keep a class list ordered by language level for quick reference

- assign roles to group members: leader, scribe, reporter, vocabulary monitor, time monitor

- allow 5 minutes' study time for learners to absorb new language or instructions before group work begins

 

DON'T
- feel bound to make groups of equal numbers: put 3 quiet students together so that they have to participate, but 6 louder students so they have to take turns

- consistently mix high and low proficiency learners: the stronger students will dominate

- always group by affiliation: learners who do not know each other well accomplish more on-task learning

- always avoid grouping same-L1 learners together: L1 discussion can be helpful and code-switching can lead to greater analytic depth

Shona Whyte's insight:

I scooped this a while back and when I went back to find it, discovered the document had disappeared.  But this is another link to the same document.

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: How I use social media for my professional development | TELT | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals, is one that I believe is of vital importance though, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

7 sites où il est bon de surfer pour trouver des illustrations, des oeuvres d’art, des photos… | TELT | Scoop.it

Le moteur de google est tant exhaustif qu’il en est parfois inexploitable pour certains besoins. De plus, Google est très bon pour les mots, mais beaucoup moins bon pour les illustrations même si d’énormes progrès ont été fait dernièrement. Fort de ce constat, pour mes besoins propres et surtout à la demande d’un lecteur, je me  suis mis en quête de trouver des sites internet  où se trouvent en priorité des illustrations, des œuvres d’art et des photos.  Pour l’illustrer un peu mon billet, j’ai fait des recherches avec le mot “blond”.

"Application disponible via le navigateur chrome qui permet de faire des commentaires audio sur tous les documents textes disponibles sur Google Drive"


Via Elena Pérez, Chris Jaeglin
Shona Whyte's insight:

Très simple à utiliser pour les googleheads - il faut être sur Chrome avec un gmail et G-Drive.

 

On rajoute le plug-in depuis le Chrome Web Store, et ensuite on peut ouvrir un document en mode Commentaires vocaux, ce qui permet de surligner une partie du texte et enregistrer de l'audio.  

 

Si on partage le document, un lien vers chaque piste audio apparaît sous le menu commentaires.  Pour les apprenants de langue, un enseignant peut donner la pronunciation d'un mot, par exemple, ou proposer un retour à l'oral plutôt qu'écrit.  

 

On peut imaginer d'autres activitiés collaboratives du moment que les apprenants installent le même plug-in sur leur machine.

The iTILT project has added some articles under a rubric entitled "iTILT Partner Clip Selection" which give examples of the IWB being used in language teaching for efficiency, authenticity, interaction, and learner-centred activities.  You can access these from the library on http://itilt.eu, using the iTILT Partner Clip Selection button which is circled in the screenshot above.

We're hoping these examples will be useful for teacher education by adding a little more depth to the wide range of classroom examples in our data base.

Defragmenting Foreign Language Learning – Marisa Constantinides

Defragmenting Foreign Language Learning – Marisa Constantinides | TELT | Scoop.it

"In the same way, the ‘McNuggeting’ of language knowledge bytes leads to fragmentation and lack of ability to access language and be able to use it in a natural and fluent way."

 

This resonates with Leaky Grammar's post on improvisation http://sco.lt/8FVUnp


because for Marisa Constantinides, Step 1 on the path to defragmented (or holistic) language teaching is "Sustained talk / long turns."


Exactly what Bobby McFerrin says in the video on improvisation: if you want to sing well, you have to practice singing for a long time.

Improvisation and Language Learning: Leaky Grammar

Improvisation and Language Learning: Leaky Grammar | TELT | Scoop.it

“Improvisation can be considered the fifth skill — the skill which follows reading, listening, speaking, and writing. In many ways, it is the most important because it is the real test of whether students can use what they have learned without being told exactly what to do or say."


Maurer, Jay. (1997). Presentation, Practice, and Production in the EFL Class. The Language Teacher, 21 (9), 42-45.

Shona Whyte's insight:

This is interesting for lots of reasons.  For those of us burdened with the CER, the "fifth skill" is interaction, which might also be considered the more improvised or least plannable.  And students used to less communicative approaches tend to cling to planned, written and/or memorised scripts for any oral work.  Young learners are taught routines by rote: What's your name?  My name is ____.

 

Unplanned, spontaneous production (and of course the other side of the coin - comprehension of unprepared speech) is what we're after.  Teachers differ on how much of the "theory" as McFerrin puts it is needed up front.  He thinks none; many language teachers would disagree.  My modest goal is to show learners that they can cobble together something new with only a few language elements, and that this both difficult and worthwhile for their ongoing language learning, and therefore worth practicing.

A Complete EFL Teacher Training Course Online

A Complete EFL Teacher Training Course Online | TELT | Scoop.it

Shaping the Way We Teach English is a fantastic resource that I came across recently. The resource is similar to other online courses from colleges and universities. It's free and accessible through The Online Language Center of the University of Oregon and it is a pretty complete teacher training course that has videos , viewing tasks, transcripts, observation checklists and even recommended supplementary web based reading.


Via Nik Peachey
Shona Whyte's insight:

Nik Peachey recently reflagged this 2009 resource from the University of Oregon.  I watched a 10-minute video on managing large classes, which is full of sensible advice with examples of classroom interaction in a wide variety of teaching contexts.  Good for self-study for pre-service and new teachers, but probably better as a resource to stimulate discussion during a teacher education course.
