      I like the ACTIONS model. It seems to summarize all the points Carla Online colleagues have been bringing up about use of technology in the classroom. It is surprising to see that a model that dates back to 1995 is still current after so many technological advances in the recent years.

Virtual reality narratives in foreign language pedagogy | Harvard Initiative for Learn... - 0 views

  • The video project allowed students to engage in four brief VR tours of Parisian quarters.
    • claire_mitchell
       
      I think this is a great idea for using virtual reality in the classroom and can be adapted for any language.
  • The team will expand upon the initial pilot by hiring five Parisians from different neighborhoods to document and share their lives with a VR camera over the course of one to two months.
    • claire_mitchell
       
      I'm trying to figure out how to do this for my own classroom; I wonder if one day we could develop an exchange where we work with partners in other countries to gather video for each other for these types of projects.
  • Awardees hypothesize that virtual reality will allow language learners to have perceptual, empathetic, and culturally immersive experiences in multiple sensory modalities (visual, auditory, tactile, etc.) that will enhance their vision, perceived value of language and culture learning, and willingness to communicate.
    • claire_mitchell
       
      This is really exciting to me as a way to use VR!

      I am especially interested in the intersection of L2 learning and empathy-- I think that a deeper understanding of culture--differences and commonalities, helps to form a bridge between peoples-- In learning language, we learn humility and stepping into the unknown--trying on new ways of saying things and seeing the world.

      I like that this focuses on the active role we play in learning better empathic responses - sometimes I think we act like empathy is either something we have or we don't and that we all feel the same.

Designing and Implementing Synchronous Language Tasks - 11 views

      Synchronous tasks can include: text, audio, virtual worlds... can be: highly interactive and collaborative, instant, quick with shorten forms, spontaneous and may generate multiple incorrect forms while students negotiate meaning.
  • asks should give the learners the opportunity to create contents,  which motivates them. • Synchronous communication tasks give students the opportunity to develop an audience for authentic communication. • Tasks should be focused on thinking skills. • It provides collaborative learning experience. • Tasks should give students proof of getting their ideas across • Creates a learning environment that goes beyond the classroom. • Vocabulary improvement

Authentic Activities for the World Language Classroom - 20 views

  • Encourage students to have silent conversations using Google Docs. Choose a theme and have each student select a color for their responses. Make sure they share the document with you too, so that you can monitor and comment.
    • effeinstein
       
      I love this idea of using google docs for interpretive activities
    • In order to help students better master the units we teach, remember these rules when selecting activities:

      1. They must be authentic.
      2. They should always be engaging.
      3. Activities should be varied.
      4. They need to be focused on the unit theme.
      5. Perhaps most importantly, they should force students to use the target language.

    This site has some awesome ideas! I can't wait to start planning for the upcoming school year!
  •  
    Amazing blog! I really like the explanation they provide for authenticity since it is not just decoration of the classroom with the cultural aspects of the target language. I will be using some of the activities they suggest :-)
  •  
    This great. I am not comfortable with the modes. This blog will help me to associate the modes with activities which will be more meaningful for me.
  •  
    Always good to have a list like this on hand! I also like the breakdown by modes.
  •  
    Thanks for sharing. I bookmarked it.
  •  
    Looks like a great list!
  •  
    This is such a valuable resource. While it felt validating to see some of the activities that I already use on these lists, they also gave me new ideas to try for next semester. I am sure students will appreciate the variety.
  •  
    I have used both Veinte Mundos and Paperboy--Wondering if I can use EdPuzzle/ Playposit, or Diigo with these-- I think that will help with greater student engagement and my ability to track what they are 'doing' with these resources-- It is not enough to assign them to watch/ read, I need to provide the activity to accompany it.
  •  
    this one is a keeper.
  •  
    If a tech device is not available for all students in class, you can do silent talk using a pen and paper. I used to call this activity "Pencil Talk"
  •  
    This seems like an excellent article/suggestion. I really enjoy using Google Docs and am excited to look into that.

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing - 1 views

      because Evernote can read handwriting! so cool.
  • You can share any note in Evernote with other people—even if they aren't Evernote users! So it's actually great for this.

  • The second type of bookmark is the one I use for Evernote. It's bookmarking stuff that you want to reference later, but not the kind of stuff you visit every day. Does that make a little more sense?
  • Forgot to mention my third type of bookmark, which are full articles I send to Readability/Pocket/Instapepr for reading later. That's more for pleasure reading than reference, which is what I use Evernote for.
    • cwelton
       
      I have colleagues who use Evernote for this 'pleasure reading' feature as well.
  •  
    I used to use Evernote a while ago for a staff writer/communications job I held in grad school. It helped a great deal with keeping my boss informed on my progress on news stories and for making suggestions. After reading this, I want to go back to it. I remember how organized it made me feel-- I'm sure I could use a lot more of that as a teacher! Thanks for sharing. Glad that Evernote is back on my radar-- with so much more to it than I remember!

  • While this may seem odd at first (if they are in the same room, why not have them discussing orally face to face?), a number of studies have shown that some students communicate more when they don't have to speak or be face to face with interlocutors, that communication overall is more evenly distributed among participants (e.g., Warschauer et al., 2000), and that they may even use a much wider range of discourse functions than they do in face-to-face settings with the same material (Kern, 1995).

      It explains for me the importance of CMC

    Yes, agreed. It takes time for many students to feel comfortable with communication in the traditional setting, so we've found great tools to encourage their growth emphatetically and creatively.

Error correction and repair moves in synchronous learning activities | International Jo... - 2 views

  • This study explores the deployment of correction strategies and repair moves in synchronous learning activities in an online English course.
    • barichetti
       
      This article looks at the question from a more theoretical standpoint.
  • When asked to identify the benefits of the synchronous learning activities concerning the correction of errors, the participants point out that events and actions are unpredictable in the online lessons and the online interviews, which provide students with an opportunity to stretch their command of the language.
  • The results from the present study show that the preferred correction strategies are explicit corrections and recast.
