Experts experiences…The role of the teacher (as author)


In this occasion, I would like to introduce one of the most experienced teachers in the role of CALL materials creators. I am sure that many of you will know of her existence, at least in the web… Her name is Isabel PĂ©rez. She is from Granada and you can find most of her work in her very famous website:
www.isabelperez.com

As you may have read in the chapter 4 of your book, the possible teacher roles described by Herz (1987) comprise 4 different levels. Which level do you think Isabel has acquired after having a look at her materials?

A rather interesting article dealing with software to learn languages

I have jest received this article posted in Papyrus which could be of interest for you… What do you think? Any comments?

Tutor-Tool Framework


According to Levy (1997:178), a tutor-tool framework is offered as a mechanism for addressing a number of concerns in CALL, the most far-reaching being the belief that all CALL is of the computer evaluates the student input and the presents the new material accordingly.

What do you think about this model already invented by that time? Do you think that now in the 21 century, this CALL can be seen easily in a CALL context? Could you give any example? Could find any information on the Internet to know more about this topic?
