Title “If I can capture the students in this way, no matter what subject, then it is worth all the effort!” Using Telecollaboration for English Language Development and Intercultural Competence in Swedish K-3 settings
Author Johansson, Frida ; Reimer, Emma
Date 2017
English abstract
This case study on telecollaboration focuses on Swedish practicing teachers’ attitudes and experiences with telecollaboration, i.e. an educational tool for communication between students in different countries to enhance foreign language development and intercultural competence. Four Swedish teachers with varying teaching experience were interviewed to share their experiences of telecollaboration in the earlier school years. The design and implementation of telecollaborative projects as well as the correspondence with the Swedish curriculum according to the interviewees will be presented and discussed along with possible beneficial outcomes and challenges that might arise in the design and implementation of telecollaborative projects. These aspects are also compared with findings of previous research on telecollaboration in educational settings. Finally, some suggestions for future research in the field is provided.
