Robo-teacher?

   The threat of the 1990s
     Teachers will soon be replaced by the multimedia PC

   The comforting message
     Teachers will NOT be replaced by computers – however, teachers who are not able to
      use computers for pedagogical purposes will be replaced by those who can

   What are teachers afraid of today?
     That they might not be able to keep up with the speed and diversification of
      technological development? - YES
     Since the mid-1990s, the technological options and challenges have changed and
      multiplied with dazzling acceleration: from multimedia (texts, images, podcasts) to
      communication and interaction with social media and in social communities
      [> Nik Peachy, Russell Stannard]

   Does knowing all the educational gadgets make you a successful technology-
    enhanced language teacher?
     NO, it doesn’t

 What is the magic ingredient?

            Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013   2
Getting your priorities right

 CAN e-learning play an innovative and enhancing role in foreign language
  learning and teaching?
 YES – provided pedagogic exploitation proceeds from a sound understanding
  of the HUMAN NATURE of the needs, conditions and processes involved

 Just throwing computers and technological “solutions” at teachers and
  learners is a huge waste of money and pedagogical energies

 There is clearly a need for technological language teacher education

 However, technological education must proceed from what human language
  learning and teaching is all about

 It is a lot more challenging for teachers to understand the human dimension
  of language learning and teaching then to understand (as an informed user!)
  the secrets of educational computer technology

         We need to get our priorities right: Who is in the driving seat?
                               Pedagogy over Technology!


           Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013   3
The human dimension

   The way we think and talk about language influences the way we think and talk about
    language learning and teaching
      Language as a system of structures or rules
      Language as use
      Language as communication

   Language learning as individual and social construction
        Autonomy, authenticity, collaboration
        Ownership and agency: helping learners develop the kind of English they feel
         comfortable with

   Language learning for and through communication
      Look at how little children acquire their first language
      Look at natural language second acquisition:
       Lexis over grammar – Communication first
          →   The lexical approach [Lewis 1983]
          →   Task-based learning approaches > CLIL
          →   The “dogme” approach [> Scott Thornbury’s blog]


              Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013   4
Pedagogical affordances of e-learning technologies

Contributions of e-learning in an overall social
constructivist and communicative approach

 Multimedia communicative practice & authoring
     Skills: reading, listening, writing, speaking                                      e.g. Telos Language
     Knowledge: lexis, grammar, pragmatics                                              Partner

 Pedagogic corpus explorations of (real) communication
     Noticing, awareness raising
     Skills practice and lexical searches                                               e.g. BACKBONE

     Moodle integration

 Intercultural communication
     From classroom simulations to REAL-LIFE contact                                    e.g. icEurope
      and communication in the web                                                       e.g. PELLIC

 Collaborative interaction
     Networking, sharing, community building
                                                                                         e.g. TILA
     From learning to teaching to teacher education

         Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013   10
Continuity of change

   The holy grail syndrome
     Intelligent tutoring systems – early and mid 1990s
     Multimedia – mid and late 1990s
     E-learning – late 1990s and early 2000s                                              [Kohn 2009]
     Blended learning – early 2000s [> to enhance e-learning!]
     Flipped classroom – today [> to enhance the classroom!]

   Technological cherry picking
       Web 2 media > creation and exchange of user-generated content, e.g. forum,
        conferencing, blogging, podcasting and wiki collaboration
       Communication > Skype, BigBlueButton, 3D virtual environments
       Community building > e.g. facebook, twitter, second life, serious games
       Latest technologies: Interactive whiteboard learning - tablet learning - smartphone
        learning - cloud learning - mobile learning

   Horses for courses
       Consider ALL options – pick a few! Create your own pedagogical BLEND!

                Use the human dimension for pedagogical orientation!

Over to you


Now think of your own preferences.

But never think of technological solutions in isolation – always think of
what you want to do in pedagogical terms.

Technologies can be successfully used for pedagogical purposes. They
should, however, never replace pedagogical purposes and reasoning.

Technologies have an enabling function – they should not be allowed to
assume control.

Never forget the human dimension of e-learning and e-teaching.




        Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013   13
Thank you

Kohn 2013 e-learning 4 languages: the human dimension, TESOL Arabia 14-16 March 2013

  • 1. e-learning for languages the human dimension Kurt Kohn University of Tübingen (DE) Steinbeis Transfer Center (DE) kurt.kohn@uni-tuebingen.de Language Learning Media http://projects.ael.uni-tuebingen.de www.sprachlernmedien.de Twitter: @kurtkohn – LinkedIn – Facebook Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013
  • 2. Robo-teacher?  The threat of the 1990s  Teachers will soon be replaced by the multimedia PC  The comforting message  Teachers will NOT be replaced by computers – however, teachers who are not able to use computers for pedagogical purposes will be replaced by those who can  What are teachers afraid of today?  That they might not be able to keep up with the speed and diversification of technological development? - YES  Since the mid-1990s, the technological options and challenges have changed and multiplied with dazzling acceleration: from multimedia (texts, images, podcasts) to communication and interaction with social media and in social communities [> Nik Peachy, Russell Stannard]  Does knowing all the educational gadgets make you a successful technology- enhanced language teacher?  NO, it doesn’t  What is the magic ingredient? Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 2
  • 3. Getting your priorities right  CAN e-learning play an innovative and enhancing role in foreign language learning and teaching?  YES – provided pedagogic exploitation proceeds from a sound understanding of the HUMAN NATURE of the needs, conditions and processes involved  Just throwing computers and technological “solutions” at teachers and learners is a huge waste of money and pedagogical energies  There is clearly a need for technological language teacher education  However, technological education must proceed from what human language learning and teaching is all about  It is a lot more challenging for teachers to understand the human dimension of language learning and teaching then to understand (as an informed user!) the secrets of educational computer technology We need to get our priorities right: Who is in the driving seat? Pedagogy over Technology! Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 3
  • 4. The human dimension  The way we think and talk about language influences the way we think and talk about language learning and teaching  Language as a system of structures or rules  Language as use  Language as communication  Language learning as individual and social construction  Autonomy, authenticity, collaboration  Ownership and agency: helping learners develop the kind of English they feel comfortable with  Language learning for and through communication  Look at how little children acquire their first language  Look at natural language second acquisition: Lexis over grammar – Communication first → The lexical approach [Lewis 1983] → Task-based learning approaches > CLIL → The “dogme” approach [> Scott Thornbury’s blog] Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 4
  • 5. Pedagogical affordances of e-learning technologies Contributions of e-learning in an overall social constructivist and communicative approach  Multimedia communicative practice & authoring  Skills: reading, listening, writing, speaking e.g. Telos Language  Knowledge: lexis, grammar, pragmatics Partner  Pedagogic corpus explorations of (real) communication  Noticing, awareness raising  Skills practice and lexical searches e.g. BACKBONE  Moodle integration  Intercultural communication  From classroom simulations to REAL-LIFE contact e.g. icEurope and communication in the web e.g. PELLIC  Collaborative interaction  Networking, sharing, community building e.g. TILA  From learning to teaching to teacher education Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 5
  • 6. TELOS Language Partner – www.sprachlernmedien.de Multimedia learning & authoring > Learning Modules Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 6
  • 7. BACKBONE – Pedagogic Corpora for Content and Language Integrated Learning A European LLP (KA2) project with 8 partners from 7 European countries: France, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Spain, Turkey and UK (Jan 2009 – Dec 2010) Coordinator: University of Tübingen, Applied English Linguistics (Germany) http://projects.ael.uni-tuebingen.de/backbone/moodle [Kohn 2012] http://purl.org/backbone/searchtool Authentic language support for CLIL settings  Creation of 7 corpora of video-recorded spoken interviews for CLIL secondary, higher and vocational education:  lesser taught languages: Polish and Turkish  regional & socio-cultural varieties of German, French, Spanish and English  European manifestations of English as a lingua franca (ELF)  Pedagogic design with regard to topics, annotation & enrichment, and online search modes  Pedagogically designed ‘do-it-yourself’ tools for corpus management, annotation, enrichment, and search Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 7
  • 8. icEurope – Intercultural Foreign Language Communication and Learning A European Comenius project with 6 partners from 5 European countries: Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, and Turkey (Dec 2009 – Nov 2011) Coordinator: University of Tübingen, Applied English Linguistics, (Germany) http://projects.ael.uni-tuebingen.de/iceurope/moodle http://www.iceurope-project.eu [Kohn & Warth 2011] At the cross-roads of telecollaboration, communication across cultures, foreign learning, and English as a lingua franca  A blended learning classroom/Moodle approach: → secondary school students from Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, and Turkey collaborate online in Moodle  Learners negotiate intercultural topics & contents with their peers and thereby → raise their awareness & tolerance for intercultural differences → explore and co-develop their own English (ELF) → develop communicative-strategic competence → acquire media literacy Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 8
  • 9. PELLIC – Practice Enterprise for Language Learning & Intercultural Communication A European LLP (KA 3) project with 6 partners from 5 European countries: Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, and Turkey (Dec 2008 – Nov 2010) Coordinator: Turku University of Applied Science (Finland) [Glombitza 2012] http://projects.ael.uni-tuebingen.de/pellic Authentic English business communication & collaboration in a ‘practice enterprise’ approach  Content and language integrated learning (CLIL)  The lingua franca and target language of the project is English, as is commonly the case in real-life international business encounters  A virtual learning environment (VLE) based on Moodle, Google Apps and Skype  The PELLIC VLE enables learners to develop their business English skills by setting up and running virtual companies, interacting and trading with other PE companies  The PELLIC VLE integrates audiovisual resources from real-life business situations, thereby enhancing the authenticity of the PE learning experience  The materials, once piloted, can be adapted to other European languages Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 9
  • 10. TILA – Telecollaboration for Intercultural Language Learning A European LLP (KA 2) project with 12 partners from 6 European countries: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, UK (Jan 2013 – June 2015) Coordinator: Utrecht University (Netherlands) www.tilaproject.eu Teacher education - intercultural communication & learning - telecollaboration  to develop teachers’ pedagogical competences in relation to telecollaboration and intercultural communication through experiential learning  to explore the added value of telecollaboration for language learning and intercultural communication among secondary school pupils (aged 13-16)  to offer hands-on experiences in telecollaboration using video conferencing tools (e.g. Skype or BigBlueButton) and virtual worlds in OpenSim as well as asynchronous tools like blogs and wikis  to address technological, intercultural, pedagogical and organizational concerns for the successful integration of telecollaboration practices in language education  Target languages: English, French, German and Spanish Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 10
  • 11. Continuity of change  The holy grail syndrome  Intelligent tutoring systems – early and mid 1990s  Multimedia – mid and late 1990s  E-learning – late 1990s and early 2000s [Kohn 2009]  Blended learning – early 2000s [> to enhance e-learning!]  Flipped classroom – today [> to enhance the classroom!]  Technological cherry picking  Web 2 media > creation and exchange of user-generated content, e.g. forum, conferencing, blogging, podcasting and wiki collaboration  Communication > Skype, BigBlueButton, 3D virtual environments  Community building > e.g. facebook, twitter, second life, serious games  Latest technologies: Interactive whiteboard learning - tablet learning - smartphone learning - cloud learning - mobile learning  Horses for courses  Consider ALL options – pick a few! Create your own pedagogical BLEND! Use the human dimension for pedagogical orientation! Kurt Kohn, “e-learning for languages: the human dimension”, TESOL Arabia, 14 March 2013 11

  • 13. Over to you Now think of your own preferences. But never think of technological solutions in isolation – always think of what you want to do in pedagogical terms. Technologies can be successfully used for pedagogical purposes. They should, however, never replace pedagogical purposes and reasoning. Technologies have an enabling function – they should not be allowed to assume control. Never forget the human dimension of e-learning and e-teaching.
