Using Web 2.0 Technologies to Deliver Individualized Instructional Resources to Language Learners. This is a presentation that I will/did give for the Korean Association of Multi-media Assisted Language Learning (KAMALL) 2007 conference. I detail the concepts and technologies around an approach to provide learners with individualized content.

  • Transcript

    • 1. Dan Craig [email_address] Seoul National University Language Education Institute
    • 2.
      • Individualized Instruction
      • Web 2.0
      • Syndication/Aggregation
      • An Approach to Delivering Content
    • 3.
      • Courses designed for general needs
      • Keeping up with heterogeneous classes
      • Unique Students = Unique needs
      • Struggle to accommodate many difficult learner needs (Tomlinson, et al., 2003)
      • Resources for group needs and individual needs (Henry, 1975)
      • Proactive & Reactive
    • 4.
      • Individualization of resources and (some) activities is the rationale for the approach that I will talk to you about today
    • 5.
      • Coined in 2001 (O’Reilly, 2005) to describe post-bubble technologies.
        • Web as platform
        • Harness the collective intelligence of users (crowd-sourcing)
        • Applications are run on data. Data is king.
        • Applications are never finished (perpetual beta)
        • Keep the programming simple
        • Applications run on multiple devices
        • Rich user experiences
      • These technical insights are important, but mean little to educators
    • 6.
      • Web 2.0 is more of a social movement than a technology.
        • From closed systems to open systems
        • From individual to social
        • From consumer to producer
        • Arguably a change in our perception of the world in which we live and our place in it.
    • 7.
      • Web 2.0 has no ONE, good definition
      • Web 2.0 enables users to:
        • Produce and consume content
        • Comment on content
        • Share content with others
        • Syndicate content for easy distribution
    • 8.
      • Some popular Web 2.0 technologies:
        • Blogs – Blogger , EduBlogs , WordPress
        • Podcasts - Grammar Girl , Breaking News English , English as a Second Language Podcast
        • Wikis - Wikispaces , Zoho Wiki , Wetpaint
        • Photo sharing sites - Flickr , Picasa , Photobucket
        • Video sharing sites - YouTube , Google Video , TeacherTube
        • Online social networks - Cyworld , MySpace , Facebook , italki (language learning), and Soziety (language learning)
        • Social bookmarking - del.icio.us , StumbleUpon , diigo
        • Aggregators - Google Reader , Bloglines
        • Personalized start pages – Netvibes , PageFlakes , iGoogle
    • 9.
      • Web 2.0 technologies supply the content for the approach that I will describe today.
    • 10.
      • Syndication
        • XML Syndication or “feeds” (RSS & Atom)
        • Text-based representation of content
        • Script tags for better parsing of content (audio, video, etc.)
      • Aggregation
        • Application collects & organizes feeds
        • Ability to mix (or “mash”) content to fit your needs.
    • 11.
      • Syndication and Aggregation are the means for delivery and organization of content in the approach that I will talk about today.
    • 12.
      • Uses free, online services to organize and distribute targeted content to learners.
      • Encourages flexible, responsive practice
      • Encourages students to take control of their own learning.
    • 13.
      • Use a service that provides syndication for individual “tags” or keywords. ( del.icio.us )
      • Populate del.icio.us with Web-based resources
        • Tag resources for optimal distribution
        • Standardize tags when possible:
          • Class name (e.g., web2esl )
          • Skills areas (e.g., writing , grammar , speaking , culture , etc.)
          • Types of content being linked to (e.g., audio , podcast , video , quiz , blog , etc.)
          • Student names of pseudonyms
    • 14.
      • Demonstration of posting in del.icio.us
      • Demonstration of a tagged page
      • Demonstration of a feed
      • Demo Video (2 minutes)
    • 15.
      • Students must use a kind of aggregator (Netvibes)
      • Load aggregator with feeds
        • OPML
        • Manual
        • “ Share” with a program like Netvibes
      • Some suggested feeds to start off with
        • Your class blog feed – http://web2esl.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
        • The class del.icio.us feed - http://del.icio.us/rss/web2esl
        • Their personal page feeds – http://del.icio.us/rss/web2esl/samplestudent
        • Skill area pages – http://del.icio.us/rss/web2esl/writing , http://del.icio.us/rss/web2esl/grammar
    • 16.
      • Demonstrate use of Netvibes
      • Demonstrate adding a feed to Netvibes
      • Demo Video (2 minutes)
    • 17.
      • Use it
        • Use it as main form of communication
        • Start from the first day of class
        • Be consistent
      • Record it
        • Note everything in your feeds: blog, del.icio.us, or elsewhere.
        • Build an online repository of resources
      • Enforce it
        • Make it clear that they will be responsible for this information and that this is not optional/extra.
        • Schedule activities or assignments using the class or individual feed.
        • Post quizzes and other activities that they are required to do (and are graded on).
    • 18.
      • Extremely flexible approach.
      • Not bound to any one product or service.
      • Most new products/services come with the ability to syndicate. The sky is the limit.
    • 19.
      • Focus on the functionality (technology) offered by the services, NOT the services themselves.
      • Focus on the concept of developing learning networks through connecting with content and people.
      • Focus on the fact that the more you grow and tag your repository, the easier it gets to find, process, and disseminate that information.
    • 20.
      • Thank you very much!
      • Any Questions?
