EuroCALL 2013 presentation; Evora, Portugal; 11/09/13
Shona Whyte's insight:

Our presentation on video communication with young EFL learners.  We filmed class sessions of task-based interaction in English as a lingua franca between primary school pupils in France and Germany.  Both classes had SMART interactive whiteboards, and we used the proprietary Notebook software with its Bridgit plug-in which allows a high quality audio/video link and screensharing via a SMART server.  In this way, learners could see and hear each other, and manipulate objects on a shared IWB file - technology supporting live communication among these young beginner learners.  The presentation focuses on task design and the implementation of activities, including participants' perspectives.
