Description:
This pedagogical corpus, its resources and tasks have been designed for pre-service language teachers and teacher trainers. The majority of resources are in English. However, the multimodal transcriptions of the interaction tracks from the French-as-a-foreign language group LS are in French. It is possible to do the all of the activities in this corpus without using these six resources if necessary. For activity 2.2 you will simply focus on the transcriptions of the English-as-a-foreign-language group ES rather than both the ES and LS groups.
Objectives: identify and code textchat's different discursive functions when used in a multimodal environment; summarise differences in the use of the textchat by two different student workgroups; identify and code different types of corrective feedback that were provided in the textchat by the tutor and the students; summarise patterns of use of the textchat for feedback; identify whether, given the multimodal nature of the synthetic world environment, students could deal with multiple communication channels, and were able to respond to feedback in the textchat
This pedagogical corpus focuses on data from the "Building Fragile Spaces" course that formed part of the European Lifelong Learning Archi21 project. The course was organised as a five-day intensive design studio for students of architecture that adopted a Content and Language Integrated Learning approach. The architectural focus of the design studio was the design and fabrication of the immersive environment in Second Life for the Archi21 project. 'Building Fragile Spaces' involved eight female and nine male students, aged between 21 years and one month and 25 years and 8 months. Students ranged from first year undergraduates to second year Masters' students. French was the mother tongue of nine of the seventeen students. The mother tongues of the remaining eight were: Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Korean and Arabic. The participants were divided into four workgroups. This division was thematic and linguistic: each workgroup received a different architectural brief and had a dominant second language. Two workgroups, studying the themes of '(e)spaces' (GE) and 'scenarios' (GS) in Second Life had English as their target language (ESL) and two groups studying the themes of 'avatars' (GA) and 'land+scapes' (GL) had French as their target language (FLE). One French and one English language tutor participated in the course alongside a French architecture tutor and an American architecture tutor. The students and the architecture tutors were co-present in the physical classroom. However, the English and French language tutors met with the students inworld, connecting to Second Life at a distance.
