发言专家: Anne Burns, The University of New South Wales, Australia

发言题目:Teacher knowledge and learning for a shared future

Over recent decades, English language teaching has become more complex and challenging. Perceptions about what counts as effective curriculum content and language teaching pedagogy are changing and are being influenced by new technologies. However, whatever the challenges now and in the future, it is what teachers know, do, and care about that provide the opportunities for students’ learning.

For Burns, a good language teacher must also be prepared to be a good knower and learner. Teacher knowledge and learning do not just happen at the start of becoming a teacher. They go on for the whole of a teacher’s career. 

In this talk, the presenter reflects on these questions:

  •  What must a language teacher know in order to teach effectively?
  • What different kinds of knowledge help a teacher to learn about their work over time?

Burns uses a framework that considers three different types of knowledge (following Cochrane-Smith and Lytle): knowledge for practice, knowledge in practice, and knowledge of practice. For each of these different types of knowledge, Burns illustrates the professional roles and identities that may emerge for us as language teacher learners who can meet new challenges and opportunities.

发言题目:Visual literacy for young learners living in a multimodal world

 

Visual literacy is a necessary skill for young learners in the 21st century, which is increasingly image and media driven. English language teachers frequently use visuals to make language input comprehensible, but how often do teachers focus on teaching students to interpret images critically and build visual literacy? Simply put, visual literacy is the ability to construct meaning from images. The relationship between text and image is an important aspect of learning to read in a language. With increased use of authentic, multimodal texts with photos, illustrations, information graphics, and videos in instruction, visual literacy should be an integral part of English language teaching and learning. Grounded in Yenawine’s (2013) work in visual thinking strategies (VTS), this presentation shows how to teach visual literacy, critical thinking, and communication skills when teaching English to young learners. It provides English teachers around the world with practical activities that will enhance English literacy instruction and prepare our young learners for communication in a multimodal world.
