SLA and Technology: The Theory in Practice

Mark Knowles - Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 3:30 PM

In this workshop, participants will learn about some of the intersections of Second Language Acquisition (SLA) pedagogy and Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL). We will focus particularly on structured input and processing instruction, which are efficient ways to help students map form-to-meaning connections in their minds. We will then explore which technology programs are out there to help us design such exercises, thus bridging any potential gap between TELL and SLA. We will also look at VoiceThread, Voci, and digital storytelling software and connect SLA theory to their use. This workshop is designed especially for the widest audience imaginable, from complete novices on through advanced users.
