What and how I'd like to learn CALL II

  1. 1. WHAT/HOW I’D LIKE TO LEARN IN CAL IIForum SummaryMost of the comments of my classmates in the forum about the contentsof CALL II were that are pretty much the same than the last semester, forexample the E-portfolio, the pages to English Learning, google, blogs,etc.Even though, the new topics inside the content of the class looks veryinteresting to practice, the Human Language Technologies is onecontent that is going to be very useful for us in our future as teachers.Given that we have to learn how to use technology in our classes for thestudents to learn better and with improve activities.Also, other classmates think that this class is linked with the others and it isvery important to apply what we learn in this class in the others, andshow that technology is now important in Second Language Learning.Some of us like challenge, so we want to use more difficult pages, liketranslators, more advance English pages, software, etc.Finally in what we all agreed, is in that we expect to practice ourreading, speaking, but more important, our writing, spelling andorthography. Because it is very difficult for some of us spell correctly onthe web. Because almost always we use informal language, so we needto practice formal language writing. Pretty much that is it, and obviouslythe better way in how we can learn more all this content of the class, itwould be practicing a lot, managing pages, software, searchers, blogs,E-portfolios, etc. And practice writing in forums, so that way our skills getbetter.

  3. 3. Research methods Focus on learning tasks Tools for building tasks Second Language assessment Human Language Technology Create a WWW site for SLA Optimizing web courses for language learners The potential advantages of CALL Attitudes and motivations in Second Language LearningHOW I’D LIKE TO LEARN IN CALL II proposalAbout how to learn CALL II, we found that most of the students in ourgroup want to learn through the practice. In addition, some of themmentioned that is important to work in teams, but meanly they want toexplore, to know and to manage new programs, web sites and thedifferent tools that technology offers in these days. Also most of ourpartners said that they want the class be dynamic, funny, interesting andby working in teams.For these reason our proposal about the way of learning in this subject isa practical way. The students don’t want to learn theory of how to usethe computer, they want to use the computer and learn through its use.Reading from different books and articles about this subject, we couldfind that the computer´s role and learner´s role are equally important. Isnot just to leave that the computer do everything but the learner has toexplore to know how to manipulate correctly different tools in thecomputer to improve the knowledge of the language. Also it says that isimportant the theoretical phase using different didactic strategies todevelop interactions and environments for language learning. Karina Márquez & Cristina Medel
  4. 4. About the contents we propose I think it could be important to explainsince the very beginning why is important and what it’s the potentialwhen you are working with technology in a second language learning. Ithink this could be just theoretical.It also found interesting that maybe the teacher could explain us goodinput to apply with the students when we’ll in “real world”, it may be funexplain it doing an input “microteaching”. Another topics we foundwere research methods, focus on learning tasks and tools for buildlearning tasks, these three topics we already had seen them, but it couldbe interesting to explore them a little bit more, because are reallyimportant for us as a English teachers. Its great learn more about this in apractical way, exploring several sites, were could be different activitiesrelated to second language acquisition.I think that “English language assessment” and “Human LanguageTechnologies” are linked between them, explore more about this topicsit could give us more ideas about how to manage and monitor thestudents knowledge and their process through learning, designing lessonsplans where we could add some time to give feedback and retroalimentation to the students could be fun. And like my classmates said,we want a fun class so it could be fun for us make a WWW site and use itwith English teaching proposes.Finally another topic it call our attention was motivations in secondlanguage learning. No just in the computer area, but in general, Iremember one of my classmates say, that this class it was linked to theothers, so if we could see more about how motivate our students thatcould help us a lot in the future.BIBLIOGRAPHY:English language learning and technology.
