  16. 16. Abstract • The role of subject teachers in content and language integrated learning (CLIL) has received little attention, since most research focuses on language learning results of students. This exploratory study aims to gain insight into the perceptions of Dutch bilingual education history teachers by comparing teaching CLIL with regular history teaching. We used questionnaires and interviews to collect data. Results show that bilingual education history teachers perceived their dual task as language and subject teachers to be challenging. Teaching in English also enriched their teaching skills and eventually had a positive influence on their level of job satisfaction.
  17. 17. Multidic demo • Check words or text elements that: • a) hinder your understanding of (part of ) a sentence • b) you are not quite sure of and would like to verify your educated guess • c) definition + example sentence for words you think are relevant enough for inclusion in your PIF (e.g. a CLIL term or academic language) DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy. Ton Koenraad (TELLConsult)
  18. 18. Teacher activities • Find relevant content • Select content on the basis of criteria such as: readability, CEFR level … • Provide relevant content (digital, paper-based, ….) • Produce + provide scaffolds for (collaborative) content processing in class and for self-access mode DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy. Ton Koenraad (TELLConsult)
  19. 19. Focus on new concepts/ vocab Fill in the blanks in this text about Movies Parts of the Movie: • The place or time a movie takes place is called the _________________. What happens in a movie is called the _____________. A movie is usually broken up into many _________________. The movie is filmed with a ________________. DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy. Ton Koenraad (TELLConsult)
  20. 20. Processing form • Subject content-oriented • Let them create their own ‘grammar’ • Content first (from fluency to accuracy and not reversed) • Reward ‘can do’ (not ‘knowing why’ in the first place)
  21. 21. Templates for manual creation of digital exercises • Now H5P.org: • Cloze (n-word or manual selection) https://h5p.org/node/275915 (with example of ‘text as corpus’) • More alternative approaches & tools later… DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy. Ton Koenraad (TELLConsult)
  22. 22. Noticing • When learners "notice" new language, they pay special attention to its form, use and meaning. Noticing will only occur when the learner is ready to take on the new language. • Example A learner might make an error in the use of a preposition (e.g. depend of), but "notice" its correct use by another learner, or in an authentic text. This might allow them to begin to use it correctly. • Teachers need to help learners notice forms that are critical for correct understanding (meaning) or communication (accuracy) E.g. conditional sentences and the use of modal verbs If it had not been for your phonecall, I could not have arrived on time.

  24. 24. Phraseology: formulaic sequences, lexical bundles, lexical chunks and collocations—that is, the “occurrence of two or more words within a short space of each other in a text”. answer the phone, brush my teeth, commit a crime, lose weight, catch the train, cut costs, drive my car, fail the test, fill the gap, give a speech, launch a campaign, miss the chance, pack a bag, ride a bike, satisfy the demand, solve the problem, watch TV, wear a hat meet the standards, open an account, swing a bat, leak information, put pressure, snap my fingers, win an award grow my hair, lend my support, row the boat, run the risk, send troops blow my nose, call the election, serve the purpose, spoil the fun, drop a hint, carry a penalty, leave an impression shoot the video, strike a pose TELLConsult workshop ‘E-Learning Tools voor Taaltrainers’, 2017
  25. 25. TELLConsult workshop ‘E-Learning Tools voor Taaltrainers’, 2017
  26. 26. A phrase-focused approach to teaching and learning may lead to more fluent, native-like, or expert production. • Some such sequences may be learned together as single “big words” ,while others may have slots or be composed of collocational frameworks • What is at stake for non-expert writers is revealing that they are not aware of the “specific norms, expectations, and conventions of a discourse community” • Language chunks are of interest as they can be “register- (or genre-) specific” Teachers should make students aware of the pervasiveness of phraseology—a field which is neglected in language teaching.

  27. 27. Teacher activities • Find relevant content • Select content on the basis of criteria such as: readability, CEFR level … • Provide relevant content (digital, paper-based, ….) • Produce + provide scaffolds for (collaborative) content processing in class and for self-access mode • Produce + provide activities with a focus on form (for noticing, revision, assessment etc: work by learners on vocab, multi-word items, grammar…) DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy.

  32. 32. TELLConsult workshop ‘E-Learning Tools voor Taaltrainers’, 2017 AI & BIG DATA Smart Newsreader: what is under the hood?
  33. 33. Extensive or Assisted (free) reading • Extensive reading helps acquisition: − Some 100 words per minute can be processed (Frazer, 2007) − 1/4 year, one hour per day = >500.000 words • Acquisition of the first 3000-5000 words of a language (http://llt.msu.edu/ - vol11num3) • But: Random (internet) content often too difficult. − Reading for 60 minutes per day is a lot. − Less frequent words will be seen less − Learning objectives reached? (incidental vs intentional)
  34. 34. Adaptive technology ⚫ To adapt content and activities to individual user features a Domain model, User model and Adaptivity model are needed. DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy. Ton Koenraad (TELLConsult)
  35. 35. User model ⚫ User and use features ⚫ Info requested or observed ⚫ Preferences, interests and actual behaviour. ⚫ Domain specific: overlay of the domain model combined with the status of learner. ⚫ Is domain knowledge present or not? ⚫ Meaning of concepts, application of language rules (e.g spelling) DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy. Ton Koenraad (TELLConsult)
  36. 36. Adaptation model ⚫ Rules combining the domain and user models: ⚫ Teaching model: ⚫ This text is too difficult because only 80% of the words are known ⚫ This sentence is too complex because of unknown tense and a subclause. ⚫ Meaning of word X has just been acquired, now a related term / concept can be introduced. ⚫ Scope of acquired vocab is insufficient for task X ⚫ Etc DDL Conference 2018, Turin, Italy.
