Krashen’s Monitor Model: It’s Crap

Krashen’s Monitor Model: It’s Crap | TELT | Scoop.it
In the light of Krashen’s reply to my criticisms, I’m sorry to say that my opinion of what is known as “The Monitor Model” has not changed in any significant way.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Follow this link to a series of exchanges between Geoff Jordan and Stephen Krashen on the latter's 1980s theory of second language learning which probably helped the Communicative Language Teaching approach more than any other.  Big at the box office though not a critical success, as Jordan demonstrates again here.

Survey on inferring emotional states in English videos: Birbeck/Utrecht research

Survey on inferring emotional states in English videos: Birbeck/Utrecht research | TELT | Scoop.it

I am a research master student in Linguistics at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and I need you for a research project I am conducting for my thesis.


Could I ask you to participate in this fun research on how people are able to infer the emotional state of their interlocutor? It is a follow-up of a survey in which participants were asked to guess (+ rate the intensity of) the emotion displayed by an actress in a couple of short video-recordings in English. In the present version, the video recordings have been replaced by audio-recordings, which might render the task more difficult.

We are looking for both native and nonnative speakers of English; all levels of proficiency are welcome.

Please do *NOT* participate in the present survey if you have already filled in the previous version of this questionnaire some weeks/months ago (you would recognize the first page)

Link to the survey: http://survey.hum.uu.nl/index.php?sid=96948&lang=en

Many thanks in advance for participating in this research project that I am conducting under Prof. Jean-Marc Dewaele's supervision (Birkbeck College, University of London).

Best,
Pernelle Lorette

Textbook Survey

Textbook Survey | TELT | Scoop.it
We are working on a classroom research project on how pupils learn English in French secondary schools. We are interested in what materials teachers use, how they teach, and how the pupils learn. For our first step, we are just looking for information on which textbooks teachers are using to teach English in French collèges and lycées.

If you are currently teaching English in a secondary school in France, we would like you to answer the following questions. We think our survey will take around 5 minutes and we would be very grateful for your input.

Technologies for foreign language learning: a review: Golonka et al., 2014

Technologies for foreign language learning: a review: Golonka et al., 2014 | TELT | Scoop.it

(2014). Technologies for foreign language learning: a review of technology types and their effectiveness. Computer Assisted Language Learning: Vol. 27, No. 1, pp. 70-105. doi: 10.1080/09588221.2012.700315

Shona Whyte's insight:

Library study of CALL research with some harsh conclusions:

 

"most CALL studies seem to focus on either describing the affordances offered by particular types of technology or measuring their effects on students’ affective reactions,
such as increased motivation or increased enjoyment of learning activities. Although describing technology’s uses and students’ enjoyment when using it are admirable and useful goals, it remains unclear to what extent the activities supported by the technology or the potential increased motivation attributed to
them actually increase students’ learning. One might make the argument that, for example, increased motivation and increased options for self-selecting study activities will lead to deeper engagement with language, more time on task, and,
thus, increased proficiency. However, for most technologies, actual increases in learning or proficiency have yet to be demonstrated" p. 92


"the next phase of CALL research should focus on how to optimize L2 learning in two distinct but related areas. The first area involves affordances that technologies offer by applying fundamental principles of learning from SLA and cognitive psychology (for example, optimal retrieval intervals). The second should
investigate the specific characteristics of technologies that may have differential effects on long-term storage in memory" p. 93
