Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Technology Enhanced Learning and Cognition
Edited By: Itiel E. Dror
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BCT%2027
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 27
Description:

The use of technology in learning has increased dramatically. Training and
education is now utilizing and almost integrated with the World Wide Web,
podcasts, mobile and distant learning, interactive videos, serious games,
and a whole range of e-learning. However, has such technology enhanced
learning been effective? And how can it better serve training and
education? E-learning must be 'brain friendly', so it optimizes learning
to the cognitive architecture of the learners. If technology enhanced
learning promotes the formation of effective mental representations and
works with the human cognitive system, then the learners will not only be
able to acquire information more efficiently, but they will also remember
it better and use it. Technology should not be the driving force in shaping
e-learning, but rather how that technology can better serve the cognitive
system.

This volume, originally published as a special issue of Pragmatics &
Cognition 16:2 (2008)
and partly in Pragmatics & Cognition 17:1
(2009),
explores the research frontiers in cognition and learning
technology. It provides important theoretical insights into these issues,
as well as very practical implications of how to make e-learning more brain
friendly and effective.
