Losing the Baby in the Bathwater: Aligning Computer-Mediated Instruction with Critical Pedagogy

 

Barbara Schroeder Jensen barbaram@Princeton.EDU

 

The presenter, Barbara Schroeder Jensen, will offer a re-examination of the fundamentals of ITA teaching and learning including the very specific affordances and constraints of our student population. This includes examining how technology (real and imagined) needs to be applied to promote second language acquisition for our students. In addition, we will discuss what aspects of the teaching and learning process must not be overlooked when considering using new technologies.


Applying Voice Recognition and Simulation to ITA Training

The presenters, Dawn Bikowski and Jeff Kuhn, will discuss ways to use technology to help ITAs succeed within their discourse communities, beyond pronunciation, and across the curriculum. This includes collaborative writing in their disciplines, strategies for self-directed learning, building context, operating within American culture(s), and classroom pragmatics. Technologies will include voice glossaries, virtual keyboards and metronomes, audio journals, videos, and voice recognition software.


Embedding Feedback into ITA Video Performances

 Janet Goodwin, UCLA goodwin@humnet.ucla.edu

 

The presenter, Janet Goodwin, will examine two tools, Youtube and VoiceThread, which allow the instructor to provide feedback by pausing a video and inserting a written or video recorded comment. We will compare these technologies with regard to format, cost, ease of use, and student reaction.


Going Mobile with Your ITAs

 Robert Elliot, University of Oregon robert@uoregon.edu

 

The presenter, Robert Elliot, will discuss some tools that can be used on traditional computers as well as on mobile platforms. Technologies will include office hour video simulations, remote 1-1 meetings with TAs and pronunciation apps.


A New "Avenue" for Video

 Mary Jetter, University of Minnesota jette001@umn.edu

 

The presenter, Mary Jetter, will demonstrate the use of "Avenue," a video interface that allows teachers to create video-based assignments that can incorporate elements of interaction, self-reflection, and feedback.
