Intégrer le TBI dans l'enseignement des langues : iTILT sur ludovia.com

Intégrer le TBI dans l'enseignement des langues : iTILT sur ludovia.com | TELT | Scoop.it

Un projet européen iTILT (Interactive Technologies In Language Teaching ou l’Intégration des Technologies Interactives en Langues - Tice), dont l’objectif est « d’intégrer le tableau blanc interactif dans une approche communicative pour l’enseignement des langues étrangères ». 

Cette volonté d’encourager les pratiques interactives autour du TBI en classe de langue se traduit par la création d’un site internet où retrouver des conseils et ressources pour la formation des enseignants en langue, des vidéos montrant d’usages en classe, des informations sur la bonne utilisation du TBI dans l’enseignement des langues, et un réseau d’échange et d’entraides pour les enseignants et les établissements.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Ouverture officielle du site http://itilt.eu lundi prochain, le 14 janvier.  Plus de 250 exemples de pratique de classe avec le TBI pour apprendre une langue étrangère ...

Étude expérimentale de la perception de la modalité à travers l’intonation en anglais

Étude expérimentale de la perception de la modalité à travers l’intonation en anglais | TELT | Scoop.it
En anglais comme en français, on peut formuler une question sans changer la syntaxe d’un énoncé, simplement en lui associant une intonation interrogative.

 

Jean-Marie Merle et Peter Prince, « Étude expérimentale de la perception de la modalité à travers l’intonation en anglais », TIPA. Travaux interdisciplinaires sur la parole et le langage [En ligne], 28 | 2012, mis en ligne le 29 octobre 2012, consulté le 06 janvier 2013. URL : http://tipa.revues.org/202

Shona Whyte's insight:

Cette étude empirique de la perception d'intonation compare les réactions à des énoncés interrogatifs et déclaratifs de natifs anglophones et de non-natifs (francophones) de niveaux d'anglais différents.  Trente énoncés ont été enregistrés en versions interrogative et déclarative (You're alright Kimberley? versus You're alright Kimberley) par une femme et un homme, puis trois groupes de 24 étudiants ont écouté les 120 énoncés en ordre aléatoire utilisant un casque et des poussoirs réponse.  Les variables dépendantes sont le temps de réponse et le nombre d'erreurs.  

 

On trouve un effet de niveau : les plus avancés distinguent énoncés déclaratifs et interrogatifs plus rapidement et avec moins d'erreurs (anglophones > étudiants avancés > étudiants moins avancés).  Il y a aussi un effet de langue maternelle : les francophones sont plus lents à reconnaître les interrogatifs, à l'inverse des anglophones.  Les auteurs voient chez les francophones un effet de transfert du schéma intonatif interrogatif français (utilisé couramment comme seul indice pour distinguer la modalité interrogative en français) et attribuent la compétence plus fine des anglophones au statut marqué de ce schéma en anglais.

Many are free, some are under $5.00, and a few are major purchases (+$15.00). These lists will all update regularly with your input.

Demand High EAP

Demand High EAP | TELT | Scoop.it

"I strongly believe we need to be (re)creating a climate of knowledge building in the EAP classroom." Steve Kirk

Shona Whyte's insight:

Steve Kirk argues that in language for academic purposes classes, fluency activities where learners "just speak" are insufficient: learners also need to learn to develop "contentful" contributions.  

 

I think a) this is also true of other second/foreign language teaching contexts and b) a strong version of task-based teaching can help address this concern.

Mesure du potentiel des tâches d’interaction

Mesure du potentiel des tâches d’interaction | TELT | Scoop.it
Nous présentons ici une étude expérimentale destinée à évaluer le potentiel acquisitionnel de différentes tâches d’interaction réalisées en binômes par des apprenants de français langue étrangère.

 

Cosereanu-Declerck, E. (2012). Travaux interdisciplinaires sur la parole et le langage, 28.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Une étude empirique d'interactions par des étudiants de FLE lors de tâches d'interaction d'écart d'information effectuées en binôme par clavardage et à l'oral : a) raconter une scène de film vue par les deux étudiants, l'un avec audio l'autre sans ; b) trouver les différences dans deux images similaires ; c) résoudre une énigme écrite.  Les variables dépendantes sont le nombre d'interactions négociées et de rétroactions correctives.  Il n'y a pas d'effet de la tâche sur le nombre de routines de négociation, mais apparemment un effet de modalité ( plus de négociations par clavardage qu'à l'oral ).  On observe également plus de négociations et de corrections dans des binômes à niveau linguistique dissymétrique, et plus de corrections lors de la tâche de comparaison d'images.
