Appel à contributions - Les Langues Modernes 3-2014 « Écrire avec le numérique »

Appel à contributions - Les Langues Modernes 3-2014 « Écrire avec le numérique » | TELT | Scoop.it
Bien qu’avec le multimédia, d’aucuns aient supputé la fin de l’écriture, ces derniers doivent admettre que celle-ci semble toujours avoir sa place dans l’ère du numérique. Codes et modalités ont évolué : quels sont-ils ?

 

 Thème 1 : L’écriture numérique et l’enseignement des langues vivantes :
 Qu’est-ce que l’écriture numérique ? Quelles sont ses spécificités ? Quelles compétences générales et communicatives mobilisent-elles ?
 Quelles sont les nouvelles littéracies qui émergent avec l’écriture numérique ? Quelle place leur octroyer à côté des littéracies classiques ? 
 Quels liens entre écriture manuscrite et écriture numérique ? Quelles traces écrites ? Comment les conserver, les transmettre et les valoriser ?

 

 Thème 2  : Entraîner les apprenants à la production écrite avec des outils numériques en classe de langue :
 Quels outils numériques sont à la disposition des enseignants et de leurs élèves ? Comment les utiliser pour aider les apprenants de LVE à écrire ? Quelles compétences permettent-ils de développer ? Quelles activités ? Quelles tâches ? Quelles stratégies favorisent-ils ? Quelle progression induisent-ils ? Quelle place doit-on accorder à ces outils ?

Shona Whyte's insight:

You can teach a second language without knowing about second language acquisition, and some recent models discount SL research, but some basic facts may be useful.  This teacher-students says: "The thing that has been most noticeable or surprising for me is the idea that students are testing out hypotheses in class. While this might not sound like such a major point, it has truly changed the way I perceive interlanguage as it relates to in-class activities."

‘A basic starter pack’: the TESOL Certificate as a course in survival

Hobbs, 2012, ELT Journal.

Relying on data both from recent TESOL Certificate trainees and from experienced teachers, this paper examines ways in which a focus on survival during TESOL Certificate courses indicates a performance-based philosophy of teacher education and, ultimately, a preference for native speakers, both of which are inconsistent with the changing global ELT market.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Interesting discussion of link between theory and practice and whether teachers believe they need theoretical input to inform decisions about teaching practice.

#ELT chat: how to participate

#ELT chat: how to participate | TELT | Scoop.it

What is #ELTChat?
#ELTchat started in September 2010 when a group of #ELTchat professionals began to use twitter to discuss topics of interest to English Language Teachers. It began with the aim of creating a freely available social network for ELT professionals offering mutual support and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development.


Now, every Wednesday at 12pm and 21.00pm, ELT teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a topic they have selected.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Good place to start to develop your own personal learning network for English language teaching.
