TELL & Viet nam context

It has been a good day, we were given an opportunity to brainstorm then analyse the influence of aspects of language competence, considitions of learning on learners’ needs (in secondary/tertiary education)  Vietnam context. I impressed with shapes  Steve ‘played’  to give us ideas on learners’ needs analysis in TELL. I agree, our fantasy about technology seems unrealistic, however in fact many of us do enjoy it and try to integrate into our classroom environment. However, what learning environment benefits from/ what it has to deal with?

In the afternoon, we are struggling with the ideas  whether FL could be transform into SL in VN with the development of TELL. We did webquest- based research on tech. is naturally integrate into classoom to enhance authentic learning. I like the moment we critically discussed how authentic learning was set up in classroom and solved the problems/consequences of leaners – learning conditions/ – teacher training circumstances..

Now I am thinking back the TPACK model as scaffolding for in-service teacher training combined with the Bloom’s Taxonomy of learning domains.

I don’t have access to ‘my Victoria’ tonight so it’s impossible to observe/analyze the beautiful ‘fruit taxonomy’ you showed us this afternoon

    Hi anh,

    Thanks a lot for this reflection. Yes, because it takes so much time and effort to become familiar with the use of technology, in curriculum design, training teachers and learners and using in lessons, it is so important to build up a principled approach to selecting technologies to spend time on. we don’t want to waste our time and money, or others’ time and money!

    As we get more familiar with analysing needs and considering acquisition processes, filtering the different technologies through environmental constraints, it becomes easier to look at a new technology and to quickly see if it is useful or not and what exactly it might be useful for.

    Don’t worry about not having time to look at all the Web2.0 tools yet. We’ll be working with them over the next few weeks.
