Okayama JALT:

A framework for selecting appropriate online vocabulary learning environments

Date: Saturday, November 24th, 2012 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Rob Waring

This talk will first present an overall view of the vocabulary needs of learners -- receptive and productive as well as language focused and fluency focused activities. We will examine many of the online resources that can fit this framework from decontextual memorization environments such as Anki, iknow or Quizlet to the more integrated environments such as EnglishCentral and graded reading online. The participants will be tasked to deciding which ones would best fit their needs.
