Teaching Languages with Technology

Teaching Languages with Technology | TELT | Scoop.it
This book draws on theories of second language acquisition (SLA) to illustrate how interactive white board technology can be exploited to support language acquisition. It examines interaction, collaboration and negotiation of meaning and focus on form in the communicative language classroom in primary, secondary and vocational schools.

In recent years new technologies have been incorporated into second and foreign language education as tools for implementing teaching methodologi
Shona Whyte's insight:

Our book on interactive technologies in language teaching is out: research into IWB-mediated second language teaching practice using case studies from a variety of classroom contexts.

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.

FLLITE: Foreign languages and the literary in the everyday

FLLITE: Foreign languages and the literary in the everyday | TELT | Scoop.it

The point of departure for this project is the open educational textbook, Le Littéraire dans le quotidien (The Literary in the Everyday), published by Joanna Luks with funding and support from the Center for Open Educational Resources & Language Learning (COERLL).

 

In 2013, the textbook was launched online as an open source reading supplement in Google Docs, and in 2014, it was made available in a print-on-demand format. Le Littéraire dans le quotidien (LLDQ) proposes a transdisciplinary approach spanning language, literary and cultural studies for the development of literacy and symbolic competencies. While the textbook content is designed for introductory-level collegiate French, the framing principles are applicable to all languages and adaptable to all levels of proficiency.

 

As a result, in 2015, COERLL and the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language, and Literacy (CERCLL) decided to make Foreign Languages and the Literary In The Everyday (FLLITE) a collaborative project that would:

Bridge the Language/Literature divide still prevalent in FL programming and textbooks;Create an educational community of practice whose members (professors, teachers and graduate students of language, literary and/or cultural studies) generate crowdsourced literacy-based materials in the form of open activities for copyrighted texts or open lessons for open texts;Offer a platform for the publication of open educational resources (OER) under Creative Commons licensing for classroom use and professional development;Provide a real-world materials development task for students enrolled in FL Teaching Methods courses.

How Languages are Learned: Lightbown & Spada

Three 3-minute videos to promote the 4th edition of their classic teacher education volume.

 

1. How languages are learned

The authors were invited to prepare teacher education modules to give practising teachers in Quebec access to research applicable to their teacher in stand-alone form as opposed to as part of university training.  Classroom research involves a combination of research training and teacher preparation so work in this area naturally has practical implications.

 

2. How has their presentation of instructed SLA research changed?

More classroom research has meant a lot of updating, but perhaps more significantly, the authors have revisited the place of theory, moving it to later in the volume until readers have a better grounding in learner language and individual differences so that they can appreciate the need for and objectives of theories of second language acquisition.

 

3. Instructed second language acquisition

If we agree that instruction helps, SLA, what do teachers do? What do learners do? How can that be described systematically and how can this description be matched with effects on learning? Classroom practice has moved on from structural approaches, to more communicative approaches and then recognised a need for balance.  Research has continued to focus on this balance, particularly in the variety of communicative approaches with emphasis on meaning rather than form,  such as content-based (CLIL, immersion), task-based methodologies.

Shona Whyte's insight:

The new paperback is selling for 23 sterling, ebook at 17 or so.  This is one of a very short list of books I recommend to undergraduate, graduate students and practising teachers alike - very accessible yet solidly anchored in research with ideas for teaching and classroom research suitable for all levels and areas of focus.

Fostering autonomy in language learning - David Gardner (Ed)

Fostering autonomy in language learning - David Gardner (Ed) | TELT | Scoop.it

David Gardner says: "The papers in this book originated at a conference held in June 2010 at Zirve University, in Gaziantep, Turkey. The title of the conference, If We Had to Do It Over Again: Implementing Learner Autonomy in the 21st Century, was remarkably insightful as it hints at a “passing of the torch” moment in the field of autonomy in language learning […]"

 

Free download (PDF, 286 pages).

 

From the introduction: "The theme of this book is fostering autonomy in language learning. The papers have been grouped into six parts each representing a different aspect of researchers’ and practitioners’ attempts to understand, explain, support and develop learner autonomy in language learning both within the taught curriculum and outside it.

Part 1: Observing Learner Autonomy

Part 2: Promoting Learner Autonomy

Part 3: of the book, Perceptions of Learner Autonomy,

Part 4: Teacher Education for Learner Autonomy,

Part 5: Self-Access Centres for Learner Autonomy,

Part 6: Technology for Learner Autonomy."
