Exploring the collaborative potential of web 2

  1. 1. Exploring the collaborative potential of web 2.0Facing the challenges of mainstreaming telecollaboration. Teresa MacKinnon, Language Centre, University of Warwick.
  2. 2. What is telecollaboration?• “Online communication used to bring together language learners in different countries in order to carry out collaborative projects or undertake intercultutral exchanges” (O’Dowd and Ritter, 2006)
  3. 3. “Perhaps the most exciting application of the web in language learning is its capacity for bringing together students and native speakers” (Klapper 2006, p191)
  4. 4. “Combining new ideas about computer- mediated technologies and well-loved theories of learning results in fantastic possibilities but they need a little human time and energy to make them work.” (Salmon,2002, p4)
  5. 5. “An elearning system can be adapted technically to supportintegrated programmes, to bridge national, international, andcultural issues and be used as an alternative to the very costlymobility of students…. However, some of the barriers toovercome in this scenario are: legal obstacles, national, andinternational recognition, quality assurance, the need forcompatible credit systems, varying teachingapproaches, examination procedures, the bureaucracy involvedin the administrative processes, cultural differences, andbandwidth limitations. The administrative support in thiscontext plays a crucial role, for this reason is important todevelop a complete administrative support to ensure thesuccess of this approach.”Aguirre and Quemada, 2012 on developing a technical infrastructureto support international joint degrees.
