Connectivism 101

Connectivism 101 | TELT | Scoop.it
A nice introduction to connectivism, including a video on the networked student and slides setting the approach in the context of alternative learning theories (conductivism (?), cognitivism, constructivism), from George Siemens' blog. This model is clearly relevant to professional devopment for language teachers, but also resonates with the process of language acquisition itself: the learner needs rich input in the target language, selects intake according to current proficiency, seeks output opportunities in interaction with peers and experts (teachers, native speakers) and puts it all together in target-language production - "sense-making artifacts," if I'm getting the terminology.

16-20 Jan 2011: Article Discussion: Research into practice: Vocabulary

16-20 Jan 2011: Article Discussion: Research into practice: Vocabulary | TELT | Scoop.it

The IATEFL Research Special Interest Group (for English teachers interested in second language teaching research) is holding an online discussion of Paul Nation's article on vocabulary teaching.

 

Here's the abstract:

 

Research into practice: Vocabulary I. S. P. Nation

LALS, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
Paul.Nation@vuw.ac.nz

 

"This article is a personal view of the application of research on vocabulary to teaching and how there are three different types or categories of relationship between that research and the teaching to which it is applied: first, where the research is not applied or not applied well, second, where it is reasonably well applied, and third, where it is over-applied. For each of these three categories, I look at what I consider to be the most important areas of research and suggest why they fit into that category. The topics covered include planning vocabulary courses, distinguishing high frequency and low frequency words, extensive reading, the deliberate learning of vocabulary, academic vocabulary and vocabulary teaching."

 

You can download the article and join the Research SIG Yahoo group (both free).  There are also discussion questions to help you participate in the online discussion if you feel so inclined.

The Digital Scholar: How Technology Is Transforming Scholarly Practice : Bloomsbury Academic

The Digital Scholar: How Technology Is Transforming Scholarly Practice : Bloomsbury Academic | TELT | Scoop.it

Probably a little far from my topic of teacher education for languages with technology, and closer to my own interest in the relationships between academia and new media, but I'll tag it as theory and if you're just looking for tools or resources you can give it a miss.

 

Martin Weller (http://iet.open.ac.uk/people/m.j.weller) is a professor of Education Technology at the Open University and has this blog (http://nogoodreason.typepad.co.uk/).  You can read his book online for free, or stump up different sums for an e-book or hardback.

Thouësny & Bradley (2011) | Second language teaching and learning with technology | TELT | Scoop.it

This edited volume by Sylvie Thouësny and Linda Bradley can be downloaded free from the above link (or you can contribute, or pay for print if you like). 

 

It showcases recent doctoral work in a variety of CALL contexts (distance and blended learning, MALL, CMC) and from different theoretical perspectives (task-based learning, intercultural competence, learner autonomy).  The work all shows the clear theoretical framework, solid empirical data, and up-to-the-minute references we associate with the best dissertations, and the articles were prepared with input from leading researchers such as Blin, Gimeno-Sanz, and Kukulska-Hulme to name but three.
