Using social networking in the foreign language classroom

Posted on June 28, 2007 at 8:38am 0 Comments

I've been following what are now called social networks right from the start. As an English as a foreign language teacher, I soon realized that they could be one way of solving one of the essential problems of learning a foreign language, namely communicating with real live speakers (and writers) who use the language as it is used daily, not as textbooks and professional teachers water it down to help learners learn it, or even as newspapers or news broadcasts transform it to suit their needs.… Continue

I had to add djvince 's music to my page. He was one of my studnets a couple of years ago when I began using social networking sites. He has continued using Tagworld to put some of his music online. I'm really happy about that. Besides I do like his music!

My research began with epistemology and provided a non-dualistic, phenomenographic perspective of engineering faculty using case study research. The data were analyzed using two theoretical frameworks. The two rich case studies illustrated: the fit between faculty espoused beliefs and classroom practices, the influence of faculty preparation for teaching, the influence of faculty pedagogical beliefs on their course delivery with technology, and the pedagogical roles of the faculty and the engineering distance education staff. My research found that one engineering faculty member’s espoused beliefs were a good fit with his classroom practices using technology, whereas the other member of faculty (who had less preparation for teaching) appeared to have less coherence between his teaching approaches and course management techniques.
