New perspectives on teaching and working with languages in the digital era

New perspectives on teaching and working with languages in the digital era | TELT | Scoop.it

Antonio Pareja-Lora, Cristina Calle-Martínez, Pilar Rodríguez-Arancón.


What are the real benefits of applying new technologies to teaching and/or learning? Are they actually also applicable to language teaching and learning? Are CALL, MALL, CLIL, LMOOCs, etc. , as effective as traditional models of language teaching and/or learning? Do they really help language learners? Will language teachers and researchers (or learners) who fail to adapt and apply ICTs to language teaching and/or research (or use ICTs for language learning) be neglected and left aside? The present volume tries to shed a light on these issues. For this reason, it has been divided into three different but fairly interrelated sections . The first aims at describing how information and language technologies are generally applied to language teaching and learning. Its different sections provide detailed information, for instance, about how ICTs are being used in the different levels of face-to-face language learning or in distance language learning and/or e-learning. The second section introduces some new trends in the application of ICTs to language learning, such as MALL or CLIL. Finally, the third section presents how language technologies , i.e. computational linguistics and language resources, are being applied to language teaching and learning.

Colloque Cyber-Langues 2016: Appel à communication - Cyber-Langues

Colloque Cyber-Langues 2016: Appel à communication - Cyber-Langues | TELT | Scoop.it
Colloque Cyber-Langues 2016 - 16ème édition

Titre : "Espace langue et espace temps".

Le numérique fait bouger les frontières physiques et temporelles du cours de langue. Il permet à tout moment de sortir de la salle de classe ou d’y faire entrer des personnes et des ressources. De même, le temps d’apprentissage n’est plus limité à l’heure de cours. L’enseignant, les ressources, les camarades de classes ou encore d’autres acteurs peuvent en effet interagir et s’entraider en dehors des temps prévus dans l’emploi du temps de l’élève.

Dans le cadre du temps scolaire, les espaces langue évoluent grâce au numérique. La gestion de l’espace de la classe, de son équipement, de son agencement, permettent de placer l’élève au cœur de l’acte pédagogique. La différenciation, le travail en îlot, la classe inversée invitent à des nouvelles postures et à de nouvelles pratiques.

Calendrier : du mercredi 24 au vendredi 26 août 2016.

Lieu : Ax-les-Thermes, Université d’été Ludovia

Structure à l’initiative du projet :

L’association Cyber-Langues regroupe des enseignants utilisant les technologies de l’information et de la communication pour l’enseignement et l’apprentissage des langues. Pour cette 16ème édition, le colloque se joint à l’Université d’été Ludovia 2016.

Le numérique en éducation : une perspective sociocritique

Alors que les discours médiatiques et politiques ne cessent de bruire des promesses du numérique pour l’éducation (l’inflation autour des MOOCs en constituant un nouvel exemple), cette journée d’étude vise à structurer une perspective émergente, la perspective sociocritique, propice pour envisager le numérique en éducation complémentairement aux approches traditionnellement centrées sur la salle de classe.
L’approche sociocritique s’articule autour des trois dimensions suivantes :

Voice Typing In Google Docs: Chrome extension

To use voice typing in Google Docs simply open the "tools" drop-down menu and select "voice typing." When you make that selection a microphone icon will appear in the margin of your document. Once the icon appears, click it, allow Google to access your microphone, and start talking. Your spoken words will almost instantly appear on in the document.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Seems to work OK.  Now what should we use it for?

The Best Interactive Web Tools for Educators

The Best Interactive Web Tools for Educators | TELT | Scoop.it

 

Slideshare - Get the credit and audience you deserve for your presentations!

Scoop.it - A stellar social bookmarking service that is being used by a ton of teachers right now.

PlanBoard - It’s an online lesson planner made for teachers. Create, share, and manage lesson plans with simple and easy to use lesson plan templates.

Evernote - It’s insanely popular in education and useful for teachers, students, parents, and just about anyone who wants to remember what they’ve done.

Dropbox - I use Dropbox every day. I had to up to the 100GB size and feel like I’ll never fill it up. Great for backing up everything, accessing files remotely (even from your smartphone and tablet) and sharing things. I’ve seen it used for handing in homework on a regular basis.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I know we always say (a) it's not the tools it's the pedagogy and (b) teacher education is best done in context, but you have to start somewhere and if you don't have tools or pedagogy, a few decent tools can be a place to start.  I use maybe eight or ten of these regularly for teaching and teacher training.
