Web 2 0 And Language Learning

  1. 1. ECIS Annual Conference, Hamburg, Germany, 18 - 22 of November 2009 WEB 2.0 AND LANGUAGE LEARNING Sunday 1000 - 1045 The web 2.0 is an innovative tool for education that is changing the 21st century process of teaching. Not only its potential is limitless but also its social and behavioral power. Creativity, participation and collaboration are some of its key elements. But there are more. This presentation will explore the endless possibilities that Internet has for a language teacher. From online comics to free broadcasting tools and flash animation sites. Teachers will turn into online creators. Speakers for this presentation: Victor González Guzmán ICT teacher and Spanish teacher Thomas-Mann-Str. 8 D - 28213 Bremen Phone: 49-421-337-9272 Fax: 49-421-337-9273 email: vgonzalez@isbremen.de vgonzalezguz@uoc.edu
  2. 2. Aims The main aim of this presentation is to give the best online resources for language teachers in order to create their own materials and activities. Its practical objectives are structured into 50 sections. Each section contains the most representative websites to use in 2009/10. In order to gather all this information we have used two main online sources. The first one is the e-learning newsletter from the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). The second one is from The Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies by Jane Hart.1 There are however other objectives we have to take into account: 1) To raise teacher awareness of the digital learning revolution. 2) To encourage teachers to combine the traditional way of teaching with the web-teaching methodology. 3) To present the endless possibilities Internet offers to enrich Language teaching 1 UOC: http://www.uoc.edu/portal/english/index5.html CLPT: http://www.c4lpt.co.uk/recommended/
