Education technologies & Language learner autonomy - Ca' Foscari, Venice

Education technologies & Language learner autonomy - Ca' Foscari, Venice | TELT | Scoop.it

International Seminar, 14th October 2013 - Venice (Italy)

This one-day event is organized by LaDiLS (Laboratory of Didactics of Foreign Languages), as part of the Language Teaching Centre at the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Studies of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

 

The Seminar will reflect on how Technologies favour Language Learner Autonomy, considering relevant issues such as:

how technologies can make students more aware and responsible for their own learning processwhat technological applications better foster language learning autonomy at different age and school levelshow technology can help build a bridge between formal and informal language learning.

The aim of the event is to explore the different aspects connecting Technology and Learner Autonomy in foreign language learning, e.g. to understand the educational value and motivational force of the latest technological devices and applications to be used in class, to discuss empirical studies and practical experiences reporting the effects of the use of those technologies on students’ language competence, to reflect on how all this implies an increase in learner autonomy and, as a consequence, on the way learners approach language learning. The Seminar is open to researchers, teachers, policy makers and language specialists with an interest in educational technologies, learner autonomy and language learning development.

 

Speakers:

Christian Ludwig

Shona Whyte

Luisa Bozzo

Annamaria Cacchione

Maura Zini

Alda Barbi

Shona Whyte's insight:

One-day event in Italy next month on technology and language learner autonomy.

5 Ways Student Can Create Audio Slideshows

5 Ways Student Can Create Audio Slideshows | TELT | Scoop.it

Somewhere between a PowerPoint presentation and a full-fledged video is the audio slideshow. Creating audio slideshows can be a good way to add meaning to slides that otherwise might not mean much without a presenter. Here are some ways that students can create audio slideshows.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I haven't done this with students since Slideshare made private sharing part of their premium package, but things have moved on and open sharing of learner presentations has become more common.  Lots of free services in this list, some with time limits.
