Innovative language learning in the multimedia lab
by Giuliana Dettori, Valentina Lupi
International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 9, No. 1, 2011

Abstract: This paper concerns a language learning experience in a multimedia lab in junior high school. The activity was shaped according to task-based learning, which consists in actively involving students in group work on meaningful tasks. The task assigned was the realisation of a website containing linguistic exercises realised by the pupils, which aimed to stimulate their creativity, motivation and sense of responsibility. This activity appears innovative not much for the tools and methodology employed, but for the way they were used. This experience spots teachers' creativity in planning learning activities as a key element to support innovation.
