Language Learning Actions in Two 1x1 Secondary Schools in Catalonia: The Case of Online Language Resources

,

Abstract

This paper identifies and describes current attitudes towards classroom digitization and digital language learning practices under the umbrella of EduCAT 1x1, the One-Laptop-Per-Child (OLPC or 1x1) initiative in place in Catalonia. We thoroughly analyze practices worked out by six language teachers and twelve Compulsory Secondary Education (CSE) students from two schools participating in a competitive research project analyzing digital literacies. Preliminary results show that at a project-based level, committed teachers find ways to innovate, use technologies efficiently and foster language learning in all skills. However, at an activity-based level, Online Language Resources (OLR) such as dictionaries, automated translation software, spelling and grammar checkers and others remain underused, if not unexplored. [For the complete volume, "New Perspectives on Teaching and Working with Languages in the Digital Era," see ED565799.]
