Teaching Methods for ARLL (Augmented Reality Language Learning): Dogme and Task-Based Learning


<ul><li> 1. Virtual Worlds meet m-Learning Augmented Reality Language Learning </li></ul> <p> 2. Some Initial Thoughts </p> <ul><li>Teaching Methods for ARLL</li></ul> <ul><li>(Augmented Reality Language Learning) </li></ul> <ul><li>Dogme</li></ul> <ul><li>Task-Based Learning </li></ul> <p> 3. Google Android Phone as Example for ARLL </p> <ul><li>Focus on 2 Tools</li></ul> <ul><li>Wikitude </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Geo-tagged Wikipedia</li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li>Google Lattitude / BrightKite </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Location-based social networking and microblogging </li></ul></li></ul> <p> 4. What is Augmented Reality? </p> <ul><li>AR = real-world + computer-generated data</li></ul> <ul><li>Result is that computer generated objects </li></ul> <ul><li>are blended into real time projection of real</li></ul> <ul><li>life activities.</li></ul> <p> 5. Wikitude An Immersive Wikipedia</p> <ul><li>Wikitude is a program</li></ul> <ul><li>It provides information from Wikipedia on a smartphone</li></ul> <ul><li>Information displayed as markers on the camera screen</li></ul> <p>* Smartphone = cell phone with camera, internet, GPS etc 6. Wikitude An Immersive Wikipedia 7. Wikitude An Immersive Wikipedia</p> <ul><li>If you move the phone, the markers stay with the building or physical place </li></ul> <ul><li>Click on the markers or summaries to go to the Wikipedia page </li></ul> <p>* Google Android phone has 3G internet access 8. Latitude Location-BasedSocial Networks</p> <ul><li>Friends see each others location</li></ul> <ul><li>Locations shown on map (on phone) </li></ul> <ul><li>Profile / photos included for each friend</li></ul> <p>* depends on each users privacy settings 9. BrightKite Geo-tagged Twitter </p> <ul><li>BrightKite is like twitter but with geo-tagging </li></ul> <ul><li>Users microblog from mobile device (eg phones) </li></ul> <ul><li>Users location also given with microblog post (tweet) </li></ul> <ul><li>Users can find each other via twittering </li></ul> <ul><li>Microblogging becomes location-specific </li></ul> <p>* depends on each users privacy settings 10. Augmented Reality in Mobile Assisted Language Learning </p> <ul><li>ARLL focuses on contextual (immersive) learning </li></ul> <ul><li>Learners can move beyond physical classroom into street / field </li></ul> <ul><li>Contexts have opportunity to be relevant and to engage learners </li></ul> <p> 11. Language Learning with Augmented Reality / Virtual Worlds </p> <ul><li>Is learning languages with virtual worlds and with augmented reality the same? </li></ul> <ul><li>Consider 4 experiences that are possible with virtual worlds </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>1. Immersive </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>2. Social </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>3. Creative </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>4. Gaming </li></ul></li></ul> <p> 12. Immersive Experiences in AR</p> <ul><li>Very immersive (its real life!) </li></ul> <ul><li>Limited flexibility difficult to travel to distant places </li></ul> <ul><li>Limited opportunity to change surroundings (compared to a virtual world) </li></ul> <ul><li>Rich in information (with Wikitude) </li></ul> <p> 13. Social Experiences in AR </p> <ul><li>Extremely real lots of real people in real life! </li></ul> <ul><li>How easy is it to talk with other people (compared to a virtual world)? </li></ul> <ul><li>Is microblogging (eg Twitter) with BrightKite more social? </li></ul> <ul><li>New ways of communication = new activities for language lessons </li></ul> <p> 14. Creative Experiences in AR </p> <ul><li>AR does not yet create opportunities to build in the location</li></ul> <ul><li>But can share experiences via internet (3G) internet </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Microblogging </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Blogging </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Instant messaging </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Photo-sharing </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Podcasting/vodcasting </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Wiki participation</li></ul></li></ul> <p> 15. Gaming Experiences in AR </p> <ul><li>Gaming is possible with AR </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li> </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Local Games Lab </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Holden and Sykes </li></ul></li></ul> <p> 16. Methods for Augmented Reality Language Learning </p> <ul><li>Can we use same methods as with virtual worlds? </li></ul> <ul><li>Task-based Learning </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Activities using 24/7 access to location-specific information </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Activities using social networking </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li><ul><li>Collaborative tasks </li></ul></li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li><ul><li>Information gap activities </li></ul></li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li>Dogme </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Microblogging as conversation </li></ul></li></ul> <p> 17. Activities for Augmented Reality Language Learning </p> <ul><li>Role plays as tour guides (learners access Wikitude for information) </li></ul> <ul><li>Quests on location (students search for treasure) </li></ul> <ul><li>AR Geocaching (hidden containers are virtual /augmented reality).</li></ul> <ul><li>Projects and fieldtrips (students explore and collect data (text/videos/audios/images)) </li></ul> <ul><li>Blogging, Microblogging and Wikis (share ideas and content online) </li></ul> <ul><li>Noticing and mobile diaries (students reflect on experiences) </li></ul> <p> 18. Future of Augmented Reality Language Learning </p> <ul><li>ARLL is mainly geo-tagging now will it be different in future? </li></ul> <ul><li>AR will involve objects (not just information) in future </li></ul> <ul><li>Future may offer more creative learning opportunities</li></ul> <p> 19. Augmented Reality in Real Life </p> <ul><li>How will AR be used in real life? </li></ul> <ul><li>Technologies often change communication patterns </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Will AR also change how we communicate? </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li>AR may offer new opportunities for language education </li></ul> <p> 20.
