Interactive whiteboard (IWB) research shows variation in classroom interactivity (Beauchamp & Kennewell, 2010) and a need for sustained teacher support (Cutrim Schmid & Whyte, 2012).  iTILT (interactive Technologies in Language Teaching), a 2-year European project on the IWB for communicative language teaching, was conceived partly in response to these findings and as an opportunity for further research. The project has produced a website for language teachers featuring over 250 short video clips of IWB-supported classroom practice, supplemented by relevant teacher and learner comments, created by filming 44 teachers in 81 classes involving different languages, ages, and levels of proficiency in primary, secondary, university and vocational contexts in 7 European countries. 

 

The present study focuses on data from 9 French EFL teachers in three educational sectors who participated in a dedicated online support space set up for the duration of the project.  The data are participants' contributions to the limited stream of a Google+ circle including teachers and researchers.

 

Results show variation in contributions across the 9 teachers, and reveal a number of areas of general concern, but also allow the isolation of specific interactions which affected classroom practice, with implications for teacher education in languages with technology.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Our paper on iTILT teachers in France has been accepted for the SAES conference in Dijon in May 2013.

When I got athlete’s foot during hot and humid summers in Chicago, I bought off the counter ointments and they relieved the symptoms somewhat. In Nigeria the temperature and the humidity were much higher than those I had experienced in … Continue reading ? vrthng.

The English Grammar Profile allows us to see how learners develop competence in grammatical form and meaning, as well as pragmatic appropriateness, as they move up the CEFR levels. This provides us with typical, world-wide grammar profiles for each level.

Annotating speech errors and disfluencies: technical report (Cambridge)

Caines, Nichols & Buttery; Dec 2017

This document presents our guidelines for the annotation of errors and disfluencies in transcriptions of speech. There is a well-established precedent for annotating errors in written texts but the same is not true of speech transcriptions. We describe our coding scheme, discuss examples and difficult cases, and introduce new codes to deal with features characteristic of speech.
