how things got started
How things got started
  • Geroline
    • Tablet PCs, wireless environment
      • Learning Initiatives Fund
        • WatPAL
  • Development team
  • Course development
  • Learning, instruction and assessment
  • Tablet PCs, UW-ACE, Silicon Chalk
  • a set of learning designs which can be further developed with new content at a significantly lower cost than developing new learning designs 'from scratch';
  • a set of learning objects and other learning resources to facilitate individualized learning in GER 203 and other courses;

  • outcomes from a pilot of the use of the learning designs and tablet computers in GER 203, which are relevant to the context of this University;
  • evaluation of the learning design and the use of tablet computers in GER 203 and applicability of the approach to other courses (language and culture courses, but also courses in many other disciplines due to the evaluation of general learning approaches);
  • results of a learning impact study which will provide new insights into instructed language acquisition with new media.

  • Task-based, group work, grammar-oriented
  • Three grammar projects (3x4 weeks): verb group, nominal group, sentence and its parts
  • For each project (25 points):
    • Grammar card: personally relevant notes on grammatical phenomenon (1 page) = 5 points
    • Portfolio: record your learning activities (summary) = 5 points
    • Essay: 5 points for adequacy of project’s grammar points, 3 points for structure and style, 3 points for general orthographic and grammatical adequacy = 11 points
  • Final examination: Essay = 25 points
Data capture: Silicon Chalk – recording
