Project-based language teaching with technology by Robert Dębski( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent technological progress has changed the relationship between computer technology and teaching. Increased computer networks and their use for social purposes encourage innovative teaching practices using creative and goalâoriented activity and student collaboration. Project-based language teaching with technology presents the view that social computing helps implement the objectives of project-based language teaching, in environments where learners previously had few opportunities for social language use. It helps teachers implement project-orientated CALL as well as understanding the rationale behind it and the role technology can play in this approach. Topics include: situating project-based teaching, student projects, enabling technology, collaboration and participation, learning tasks and assessment. Chapters contain teaching suggestions, lesson plans, issues to explore in the classroom and activities involving action research. [Back cover, ed]

What English language teachers need to know. Vol. 1 by Denise E Murray( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2019 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed for pre-service teachers and teachers new to the field of ELT, these companion textbooks are organized around the key question: What do teachers need to know and be able to do in order for their students to learn English? All English language teachers need to understand the nature of language and language learning, and with that understanding they need to be able to facilitate student learning.

Volume II, on facilitating learning, covers the three main facets of teaching: planning; instructing; and, assessing. The focus throughout is on outcomes, that is, student learning. The texts work for teachers across different contexts (countries where English is the dominant language, one of the official languages, or taught as a foreign language); different levels (elementary/primary, secondary, college or university, or adult education), and different learning purposes (general English, workplace English, English for academic purposes, or English for specific purposes)
Literacy at Work Medium of Communication as Choice by Denise E Murray( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While traditional views of literacy assume that discourse is either written or oral, an alternative perspective considers different discourse samples as part of the linguistic repertoire of the speech community. Placing this perspective in a sociolinguistic context and taking language use rather than form as the starting point for analysis, it is seen that the media of literacy available to the language user are options from which the speaker chooses. Like other linguistic choices they are dependent on the communication situation. Data collected in a larger study on computer communication, which were analyzed to identify co-occurrences of media and modes with context aspects, illustrate, in an office context, a proposed taxonomy of the use of four communication media (face-to-face, telephone, paper, and computer) and related modes. The face-to-face medium includes modes such as meetings, lunchtime conversation, and office conversation. The computer-mediated communication medium includes computer messages, computer mail, and document modes. The taxonomy defines the rules used in switching media and modes and accounts for both code-switching situations and single-code choices. It treats medium- and mode-switching as a variation of code-switching. (MSE)
