Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology

My paper on "Developing and integrating teacher competences in language acquisition, pedagogy and technology."  (Actes du colloque FICEL sur l'évolution et professionalisation des enseignants de langues)

 

The paper discusses key competences required for teaching languages with technology, and concludes with examples of projects combining research, pedagogy and technology including:

 

"the EU lifelong learning project iTILT, Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching (Whyte, Cutrim Schmid & van Hazebrouck, 2011). In this project, language researchers and teacher trainers offer professional development in the use of the interactive whiteboard (IWB) to practising language teachers with learners at all levels. After initial training, class sessions at the board are filmed, and followed by debriefing sessions with both teachers and learners. Short video clips of selected lesson episodes are then presented on the project website together with lesson plans, lesson files, and teacher and learner commentary to aid other teachers in using the IWB for language teaching. The project website also includes a variety of related resources and dissemination tools, and as teacher training and data collection proceed, the project partners inform their networks of developments via blogs and social media. Thus teaching, training and research are closely interrelated as the project teachers develop their digital  and pedagogical skills, the researchers observe classroom interaction and teacher development, and trainers create resources for future professional development using feedback from the project teachers."

 

The iTILT website (http://itilt.eu) will soon go live, allowing language teachers and teacher educators access to this free open educational resource on the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in communicative language teaching.

An evaluation of TTS as a pedagogical tool for pronunciation instruction: Tiago Bione, Jennica Grimshaw, Walcir Cardoso 2017

Short paper on text-to-speech for EFL input with intermediate Brazilian students. The researchers compared students' impressions and performance on tasks delivered by TTS and human voice and found little difference. They suggest TTS is suitable for pedagogical exploitation in contexts where authentic materials are in short supply.

More sites to use for corpus.  What's useful is many of the sites listed mention which language group would find their site useful and why.

Figement et discours spécialisé : Gautier 2017

Ce volume propose un état des lieux de la recherche actuelle sur la mise en oeuvre de la catégorie du figement pour l’analyse des discours spécialisés. Les auteurs articulent l’approche du figement d’une part avec la terminologie en examinant non seulement les modalités de formation des termes, mais aussi leur profil combinatoire, leur rapport à la notion de collocation et leur fonctionnement dans la dénomination. Ils envisagent d’autre part le rôle du figement en discours et dans la phraséo-genèse du texte. Les objets d’études sont variés – textes techniques, textes de presse spécialisée, textes de vulgarisation. Les langues objets sont le français, l’anglais et l’allemand.

How L2 learners of French and English express modality using verbal means: Leclercq & Edmonds 2017

How L2 learners of French and English express modality using verbal means: Leclercq & Edmonds 2017 | TELT | Scoop.it

Controlled study of use of modality in FR and EN at different levels of proficiency concludes:


"These crosslinguistic differences suggest that early L2 acquisition of verbal modal forms may progress more quickly for English than for French. This pattern could be explained with recourse to language-specific information concerning the complexity of the French system: Not only are verbs used in the French modal system subject to the same conjugation requirements as lexical verbs, but many such verbs are irregular. If this interpretation is correct, we may expect that modal adverbials play a greater role in French interlanguage than in English."

ReAL2: novembre 2017

ReAL2: novembre 2017 | TELT | Scoop.it
Le Réseau d'Acquisition des Langues Secondes (ReAL2) a été créé en février 2017 dans le but de réunir des chercheurs et enseignants-chercheurs, en poste dans des universités et laboratoires en France, dont les travaux portent sur l’acquisition des langues secondes.

L’objectif du réseau est, entre autres, de :
✤ mettre en avant la diversité des approches théoriques et méthodologiques en AL2 ;
✤ favoriser des contacts et échanges entre chercheurs en AL2 à travers des séminaires, journées d’études, ou colloques ;
✤ promouvoir des projets de recherche communs ;
✤ participer à la formation des doctorants et jeunes chercheurs ;
✤ développer l’interface acquisition/didactique ;
✤ créer une base de données réunissant des corpus de données acquisitionnelles, orales et écrites, issus des projets passés et en cours
