Mootie13 Can 'e-learning' for language and literacy offer an opportunity to use alternative "Functional Grammar"

Published on

I will thus very briefly outline the use of Systemic Functional Language theory and demonstrate the downloadable example Moodle materials. I will also propose that an opportunity might exist to employ this alternative "functional grammar" in a constructional approach to the design of e-learning language modules. The demonstration materials have been successfully used with SEN students in a small Swiss foundation school for learners who have faced difficulties using more traditional approaches. Use or adaption of the materials does not require deep theoretical study and the demos can be readily used as presented.

Presented by Alan Hess at Moodlemoot Dublin 2013
