Technology: Virtual mobility with a difference - European Association for International Education

Technology: Virtual mobility with a difference - European Association for International Education | TELT | Scoop.it

"Student mobility is on the rise. A previous Communiqué of the Conference of European Ministers Responsible for Higher Education  set a target of at least 20% of those graduating in the European higher education area having participated in a study or training period abroad by 2020. While this aim is very desirable, it does beg the question: What about the remaining 80% of students who may not engage in some kind of physical mobility during their studies?"

Shona Whyte's insight:

Robert O'Dowd of the INTENT project writes about university level telecollaboration as a substitute for or complement to physical mobility.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Undated module on Graham Davies' legacy website (most recent reference 2011, the majority from the 1990s).  The authors recommend printing and reading the 50+ pages of information, then come back to the webpage to use the links to complete the activities.

This is a very thorough module on using corpus linguistics in the classroom.  It is about 50 pages worth of materials. A great introduction or review of the uses of corpora, resources and related research.

Things to do with a mouthful of air: Jonathon Marks | Liverpool Online | TELT | Scoop.it

Nobody can speak without pronouncing. Pronunciation tends to be neglected by teachers, but learners often rate it as a high priority. In this workshop, we will do some practical recognition and production activities, taken from The Book of Pronunciation, designed to help learners with sounds and sound sequences, pronunciation and spelling, word stress, rhythm and intonation.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Irresistible title for this hands-on workshop.  50 minute video.

"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.

How to use the IWB to ... [Library | itilt.eu] | TELT | Scoop.it

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.

Shona Whyte's insight:

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.

(Maybe this is all too elliptical and I need to write a blog post.  On my 2 year-old blog that has one post so far :-)

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.

Teacher issues - I chose this resource because it discusses a variety of strategies to implement during and English lesson that even includes technology.  I hope to share this resource with other English teachers to give them more ideas on how to get their students more engaged and involved in their lessons as they will add variety to their instructional strategies.

Research engagement and teaching quality: Simon Borg | Liverpool Online

Research engagement and teaching quality: Simon Borg | Liverpool Online | TELT | Scoop.it

Does research engagement by teachers (i.e. reading and doing research) enhance the quality of their classroom practices? In this talk I draw on a series of studies which examine language teachers’ and managers’ views on this issue. The findings I report highlight a range of positive, hesitant and negative perspectives on the relationship between research engagement and teaching quality. What also emerges in the views expressed by teachers and managers are diverse conceptions of what ‘research’ means, typically emphasizing personal, practical and informal activities or, in contrast, those which are more formal, theoretical and academic. Neither of these conceptions of research provides a satisfactory basis for promoting research engagement as a productive professional development strategy. I will thus conclude the talk by outlining a conception of teacher research engagement which is feasible and rigorous and which has the potential to contribute positively to the quality of language teachers’ work.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Borg highlights differing views of what consitutes "research" - unsurprisingly, teachers and researchers don't use the same definition, making collaboration challenging.

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.
