Title: Telecollaborative Language Learning
Subtitle: A guidebook to moderating intercultural collaboration online
Edited By: Melinda Dooly
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11523
Description:

This guidebook brings together the knowledge, insight and experience gained
by the participants of an international telecollaborative language learning
project entitled Moderating Intercultural Collaboration and Language
Learning (MICaLL). Telecollaboration is understood here as a shared
teaching and learning experience between distanced partners that is
facilitated through the use of Internet technology; an area of growing
interest for many teachers. The book first provides a theoretical outline
of suitable pedagogical practices for this type of joint effort and then
moves into the more practical aspects of designing, setting up,
implementing and evaluating telecollaborative projects. The guidebook
considers relevant questions and issues which often come up when teachers
without previous experience in telecollaboration undertake this type of
enterprise. Through the realistic advice and practical examples provided,
the reader will be motivated to engage in telecollaborative language
learning projects with their own pupils.
