Task-based mini-games for language learning

Shona Whyte:

If you're interested in gamification in language teaching and learning, see these slides for a presentation on "Challenges in specifying and evaluating a conceptual design for a task-based mini-game environment for language learning" at last week's EuroCALL 2012 conference in Gothenburg by Frederik Cornillie, Andrew Grenfell, Scott Windeatt, Piet Desmet.

 

The presentation covers issues of design and second language research, shows examples of games, as well as feedback from learners on games designed by the team in the delightfully named GOBL project (Games Online for Basic Language Learning) involving Dutch, Belgian, and English learners http://lands.let.ru.nl/~strik/research/GOBL/

Perceptions of the IWB for language teaching: iTILT

Shona Whyte:

One or two slides from our presentation on our European project iTILT (interactive Technologies in Language Teaching http://itilt.eu) co-authored with project partners Gary Beauchamp and Emily Hillier and delivered on the final day of the EuroCALL conference in Gothenburg, Sweden.

 

A write-up will appear in the conference proceedings scheduled for December 2012, just around the time our video clips of language teaching with the interactive whiteboard go live.  

 

After piloting at the start of the academic year, the site will be opened for free public access to our bank of some 200 classroom illustrations in different languages, contexts, and proficiency levels, allowing language teachers and trainers to see the IWB in use and read associated comments by teachers and learners, as well as download lesson plans and materials.
