RhinoSpike : Foreign Language Audio on Demand! | TELT | Scoop.it

RhinoSpike is an online language learning community tool that lets users around the globe connect and exchange foreign language audio files. Get any foreign language text read aloud for you by a native speaker!

Shona Whyte's insight:

This could be nice for language teacher training: have trainees make and request recordings and evaluate the outcomes.

RealtimeBoard | TELT | Scoop.it

This is an amazing collaborative whiteboard where multiple users can edit a multimedia board in real time. The site allows you to signup and sign in using a Google account and you can access and add your files and media on your Google Docs/Drive area making this a fabulous companion to schools using Google Apps for education. You can write by typing or you can write in 'freehand' so you can use your interactive whiteboard to write and archive the lesson to use or refer to later.

υτό είναι ένα καταπληκτικό συνεργασίας πίνακα, όπου πολλοί χρήστες μπορούν να επεξεργαστούν μια πλακέτα πολυμέσων σε πραγματικό χρόνο. Η ιστοσελίδα σας δίνει τη δυνατότητα να εγγραφείτε και να συνδεθείτε χρησιμοποιώντας ένα λογαριασμό Google και μπορείτε να έχετε πρόσβαση και να προσθέσετε αρχεία πολυμέσων σας και στο Google Docs σας / περιοχή κίνησης καθιστώντας το μια υπέροχη συντροφιά στα σχολεία χρησιμοποιώντας το Google Apps για την εκπαίδευση. Μπορείτε να γράψετε με πληκτρολόγηση ή μπορείτε να γράψετε στο «ελεύθερο» ώστε να μπορείτε να χρησιμοποιήσετε τον διαδραστικό σας πίνακα να γράφει και να αρχειοθετήσετε το μάθημα να χρησιμοποιήσει ή να αναφερθώ αργότερα.http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/ICT+% 26 + + Εργαλεία Web

Le web 2.0 dans la didactique des langues : Christine Develotte

Christine Develotte, de l'ENS de Lyon-Ifé, parle de la formation de (futurs) enseignants de langue à l'utilisation des technologies en classe.  Elle regrette que les contextes d'enseignement actuels ne favorisent pas toujours l'exploitation des TICE, malgré leur potentiel pour l'autonomie des apprenants et pour la collaboration entre enseignants.

Shona Whyte's insight:

L'écart entre les usages privés des TICE par les enseignants (Facebook ..) et leurs pratiques de classe est également évoqué chez les apprenants par un autre chercheur lyonnais, Nicolas Guichon http://www.scoop.it/t/telt/p/1868061811/les-usages-des-tic-par-les-lyceens-deconnexion-entre-usages-personnels-et-usages-scolaires-nicolas-guichon

Google+: A CALL resource for English Language Learners

Google+: A CALL resource for English Language Learners | TELT | Scoop.it

In his recent paper in TESL-EJ, Brian Hutchison outlines the main features of Google+ and says

 

"Google+ is a feature rich social networking service that provides students with the opportunity to interact with their teachers and classmates outside of class through both asynchronous and synchronous communications. In terms of synchronous communication, the Hangout feature can be used by groups of up to ten students to communicate via text, voice, and video in order to complete such tasks as group discussions, debates, and surveys. Videos of the Hangout sessions can be uploaded to YouTube and viewed by classmates to extend the activities or by teachers for feedback and evaluation. In terms of asynchronous communication, students can share online content they find interesting and useful (such as links to websites and videos) as well as their own personal photos and writings. Once shared, other users are then able to extend a thread or multiple threads of asynchronous communication through the comments they post.

 

Along with connecting current classmates, Google+ is capable of providing students with access to communities of language learners and educators that exist outside the traditional classroom. These virtual communities are environments that will persist long after an individual class or even an entire course finishes. Instructors can remain in contact with graduating students, students can remain in contact with their classmates, and classmates can be welcomed as new members in an expanding circle of class alumni."

Learning and Teaching English with the New Media

"Students of the University of Marburg have created a collection of 24 teaching ideeas for the use of the new media in English lessons. The seminar "New Media in Foreign Language Education (2010/11)" was the starting point for the students to work on six topics such as "Learning Vocabulary", "Digital Storytelling" and "Listening Comprehension". All teaching ideas include tasks that can be used right aways, variations for different age groups and hints for a hassle-free use of the tools in class. A great inspiration for English language teachers!"

Shona Whyte's insight:

Some great ideas for using different tools for different language teaching objectives, including brief description of tools, didactic applications, ideas for classroom use, variations and hints.  A very effective format for teacher training also, perhaps useful for novice-expert teacher tandems.

Call for Papers - Digital Methodologies in Educational Research. 16-17th May 2013.

Venue: Brockholes Conference Centre in Preston, UK: http://www.brockholes.org/
Invited Speakers: Professor Martin Weller (The Open University, UK) and Stephen Downes (National Research Council, Canada)
Call for papers: 1st December 2012 - 28th February 2013
Abstract submissions to: Dr Michael Thomas (MThomas4@uclan.ac.uk)

Call for Papers
The purpose of this two-day symposium is to develop and support digitally-enabled research across the field of education. By providing a forum for the discussion of digital approaches, the event will enable the exchange of methodologies, ideas, expertise and knowledge and present educational researchers, practitioners and doctoral students with opportunities to develop new networks and share good practice. The use of new digital research methodologies in education is rapidly developing in quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods approaches. Across education digital methods are being used to address new practices related to the changing landscape of research collaboration, observation, analysis and dissemination. As a result of Web 2.0 technologies, educational researchers are also increasingly turning to new approaches to research computer-mediated communication, involving social media, social networks and virtual immersive environments. The symposium will address the key issues related to the Digital Social Research Strategy, particularly in relation to the challenges posed by data collection and analysis in the digital age, including trust and quality, interoperability and data preservation in an educational context. The event is aimed at established as well as early career researchers and postgraduate students.
