8 Advanced corpus users Research purposes Translation L2 learning at university

9 Novice corpus users L2 learning at high school CLIL

10 Novice corpus users L2 learning at high school CLIL

11 Using the language to learn Learning to use the language Coyle (2007)

12 Eurydice (2006:51) OBSTACLES Legislation Qualified staff Financial restrictions Materials Content Language

13 Our proposal

14 1. Scant attention 2. Learners’ profile 3. CLIL obstacles (materials) PEDAGOGIC CORPORA

15 Why pedagogical?

17 Homogeneous and systematic Thematic relevance Recontextualisation  Authentication Easy to use query tools and search options Braun (2006)

18 ELISA English Language Interview Corpus as a Second-Language Application 2003 – video interviews in English 5-15 minutes per interview words Search interface Learning materials 2005 – 2008 Video interviews in 7 EU languages - Teen talk Corpus compilation and exploitation tools Learning materials Corpora + tools freely available

19

20 Lesser taught languages DIY approach – small spoken corpora Non-standard regional varieties Non-native varieties of ELF

21 CLIL settings: vocational training, secondary education, university. BLENDED LEARNING PRINCIPLES Learner centeredness Relevant topics Connection to CEF progression ICT implementation Free online corpora + materials Moodle integration

22 Language authentication Small homogeneous corpora Pedagogically relevant topics MultimodalityFull texts – sections – concordances

23 Data-driven learning but… … pedagogically selected, annotated and enriched data

29 Our approach

30 COLLABORATIVE ANNOTATION TRANSCRIPTION MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT

31 Corpus compilation

32 Age range: provinces Diverse professional fields doctor teacher archaeologist sportswoman ex-lawyer confectioner bio-farmer top researcher entrepreneur

33 Orthographic TEI-compliant markup

34 Transcribing and sectioning Supports metadata information Video formats: DIVX, XVID,AVI,MPEG, Quick Time, RM, Audio formats: MP3, WAV, ASF Timestamping audio-text

36 Pedagogic enrichment

46 Thematic relevance Two types of materials: - Learning modules - Corpus-based communicative and exploratory activities The Virtual Resource Pool Integration in Search Tool

47 19 modules – 107 activities Telos Language Partner 1 section – 1 module – several activities Comprehension & focus on form

55 10 packages – 93 activities Corpus exploration: - lexis-grammar - communication

56 Lexis and grammar

57 Communication

58 Online integration of learning materials Learning modules and C&E packages linked to interview sections

60 Corpus exploitation

61 The learning space Access to corpora + learning materials Four search modes: - Browse - Section search - Concordances -Co-ocurrences Wordlists

62 The browse mode

63 The section search mode

64

65 The co-occurrences search mode

66 The concordances search mode

67 The word lists view

70 Scant scholarly attention in non-tertiary education settings CL methods and tools Pedagogic mediation!

72 From the possibilities scenario the feasibility scenario

73 Corpora can be exploited in the language classroom in different ways Language research-oriented paradigm CL Methods Sampling Representativeness Morphological tagging Alcaraz & Pérez-Paredes (2008)

74 Corpora are devised to be exploited in the language classroom by language learners in different ways Language learning-oriented paradigm Mediation role Theory-informed tagging Parametric framework- aware Learner-oriented tagging Representative of the world of the learner Alcaraz & Pérez-Paredes (2008)
