Technology: Virtual mobility with a difference « European Association for International Education European Association for International Education Student mobility is on the rise. A previous Communiqué of the Conference of European Ministers Responsible for Higher Education set a target of at least 20% of those graduating in the European higher education area having participated in a study or training period abroad by 2020. While this aim is very desirable, it does beg the question: What about the remaining 80% of students who may not engage in some kind of physical mobility during their studies? The need to expose the maximum number of students to the benefits of working and interacting with members of other cultures has led many educators to engage their students in telecollaborative or online intercultural exchange projects with partner students in distant locations around the globe. These exchanges usually involve collaborative project work using two or more languages. Integrated virtual mobility Combining virtual and physical mobility So why isn’t everyone doing it? Supporting new telecollaborators Related posts:

TICs en FLE untitled As China recovers massively from the COVID 19 virus that had the nation on lockdown and registered deaths in thousands, the industries in China are picking up at a quick pace. Various tourist sites are open as well – including the Great Wall of China. Part of the Great Wall of China has been reopened for tourists. Badaling, the most visited section of the Chinese Wall, is a 3.7-kilometer path in an excellent state of preservation – thanks to the fact that it underwent restoration in the 1950s – where 19 watchtowers still stand. This portion of the wall is part of an even larger 12-kilometer section built by the Ming dynasty in the 16th century. Badaling is one of the most visited sections, welcoming between 65,000 and 70,000 tourists a day until a few months ago. Visits will be limited to 30% of the usual number of entries. Access will be controlled with a QR code linked to the visitors’ identity document, which will display their health status.

Premier jour d'école de Léo Inter-university telecollaboration to improve academic results Public release date: 13-May-2013 [ Print | E-mail | Share ] [ Close Window ] Contact: Aitziber Lasa 34-943-363-040 Elhuyar Fundazioa This news release is available in Spanish . Ana Sánchez and José Miguel Blanco, lecturers in the Department of Computer Languages and Systems of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country, together with Arturo Jaime and César Domínguez, lecturers in the Department of Mathematics and Computing at the University of La Rioja, have developed an experience between the two universities by systematically incorporating telecollaboration. The project has been developed in the ambit of two database subjects, one at each university, where the similitudes and differences between them produce heterogeneous teams. "Our proposal," explains Ana Sánchez, "has pursued three objectives". 36 students from each university participated as telecollaborators.

A la fin de l’année 2010 le terme "curation" a fait son apparition dans le domaine de l’information-documentation directement influencé par les nouvelles utilisations du web 2.0 et la nécessité de filtrer, canaliser, exploiter, partager le flux pléthorique des informations. Ce néologisme, issu du terme curator anglo-saxon dénommant à l’origine le commissaire d’expositions d’art, désigne une activité que les documentalistes connaissent depuis longtemps : regrouper les informations, les sélectionner, les classer selon une thématique précise. La curation va cependant plus loin puisqu’il s’agit aujourd’hui de mettre en valeur ces données, de les éditorialiser et de les partager, valeur ajoutée rendue possible grâce à l’évolution des outils du web.

However, the recent enthusiasm for technology in language teaching? A Brief History of Technology and Language Learning Virtually every type of language teaching has had its own technologies to support it. In contrast, the audio-tape was the perfect medium for the audiolingual method (which emphasized learning through oral repetition). By the late 1970s, the audiolingual method fell into disrepute, at least in part due to poor results achieved from expensive language laboratories.
