Your ideas on how language ressources should develop integrating web 2.0 activities
This discussion aims to go back to the basics of this part of the "language resources and web 2.0" research network and adresses the conception and development of language resources. Let's focus here not on the use but on the potenial of development of web 2.0 resources for language learning : Regine Helmer, CEO of Palabea said that this new tool was still in the very beginning and that nobody could oversee how it could develop. We have seen in the research that there are some rare initiative from language method developers to integrate web 2.0 in their methods. that a whole new activity based on mutual, informal learning is developing on the web.
How should we develop these ressources ? Would professionals (publishers, educational media, elearning professionals) be able to conciliate open and free participative tools and CGU with commercialising constructed and didactically overthought language methods ? Has anyone a concept or an idea on how language resource makers could develop meaningfull, pedagogically efficient tools for the classroom ? Or is this subject already a contradiction in itself and is web 2.0 just a tool for "multilingual socialising" ?
