WHAT IS DATA-LEARNING

  • What Harold Palmer said reminded me content-based instruction.Focus in CBI should be  on content instead of linguistic forms of the target language.It  uses authentic materials that are not prepared specifically  for language instruction just  like  CLT and uses real or authentic tasks like  Task based and content based instruction
  • DDL puts the learner in the center of the teaching/ learning process .
  • In my opinion, DDL can be used for both  individual and group works.
  • Computers can enhance the teaching environment.For example concordances can be used although some teachers think that They are very time consuming.
  • I want to share the following as an example of DDL activity  (Gregory Hadley,  http://www.nuis.ac.jp/~hadley/publication/windofchange/windsofchange.htm )
"One example of DDL's potential as a pedagogic resource will suffice. In Japan, language learners still memorize sentences such as "The food was eaten by me." However, such a sentence would strike most native speakers as odd. Instead of trying to explain to learners why it is odd simply from insight, we can direct our students to look at tangible examples from the corpus. Using a corpora/concordances package (Collins COBUILD English Collocations, 1995), they find that "eaten" does in fact collocate most commonly with the word "food." The learners are then provided with the following samples taken from COBUILD's Bank of English (see Figure Four). They may then notice how the authentic language samples differ from their usage of the word "eaten."
