WeSpeke: telecollaboration opportunities

WeSpeke: telecollaboration opportunities | TELT | Scoop.it

We are delighted to announce that WeSpeke has been very favorably reviewed by The Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO).  To reference the review please go to the CALICO site at:  http://journals.sfu.ca/CALICO/index.php/calico/article/view/1002/892
 
In addition, to address the needs of our user community, WeSpeke is now offering a freeconcierge matching service for teachers.  If you have ever thought; “I teach _____ and would like to connect my students with native _____ speakers.”, then this service is for you.  We will personally introduce you to your foreign counterpart at a university or school where a relationship already exists through international education, study abroad or an exchange program.  This service is intended to give you a free resource to connect your students with their peers in the target language to practice your instruction.  If you are interested in the WeSpeke concierge matching service please reply via email here.  Please indicate if you have a university or school preference.
 
Together we’ll make language and cultural education a priority and give language learners the very best resources available to become fluent, improve their cultural understanding and perhaps develop lifelong international friendships.
 
WeSpeke is now available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese.  If you know of any colleagues who might be interested in using WeSpeke in or around their teaching, why not forward them this email, or send them a link to our new video?  A free Teachers Resource Guide is available here.

Best regards, un saludo, à bientôt, mit besten Grüßen, saluti, saudações,

Telecollaboration via e-mail: Bohinski & Leventhal 2015

This task-based study, designed with Helm and Guth's (2010) Telecollaboration 2.0 framework in mind, qualitatively investigated a telecollaborative exchange. Two second language (L2) Spanish participants and three L2 English participants carried out a six-week e-mail exchange that centered on specific holidays, giving researchers an opportunity to study participants' intercultural communicative competence (ICC) (Byram, 1997) and how participants critically analyzed and discussed cultural aspects of an L2 language (Klein & Solem, 2008). Participants' exchanges revealed the following: (1) each participant's thoughts on his/her partner's culture as was perceived through L2 instruction, (2) each partner's reaction to perceptions and insight to cultural reality, and (3) sharing of personal anecdotes. Patterns in exchanges were analyzed using NVivo 10 software with a data-driven, hybrid analytical approach. Thematic categories were created from the data and used to code the e-mail exchanges and subsequently correlated to Helm and Guth's (2010) framework. Results indicated that participants using a Web 1.0 resource experienced transformation through the telecollaboration. Researchers concluded that more nuanced categories were needed to assess ICC to understand the intricacies of online collaborative exchanges. Researchers believed that Web 1.0, in the absence of Web 2.0, remained a valuable venue for telecollaboration.Click here to edit the title

The second conference on Telecollaboration in University Education, on the theme of New Directions in

Telecollaborative Research and Practice, will be held in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland from 21 to 23
