Working on the Internet (Digital literacy, information retrieval, bibliography management, concept of working in collaboration).
This unit has been designed as an introduction to the field of information literacy so that the students could be able to select and manage their resources in a coherent and professional way. We will also study the topic of digital competences applied to language teaching purposes. The students will learn to use bibliographic management applications such as Mendeley or RefWorks. They will also learn how to incorporate into their everyday study routine other collaborative tool offered by the UNED (e.g. Office 365).
The use of wikis as a collaborative working space to deal with foreign languages
This unit will show how to use a wiki to create content collaboratively with MediaWiki, the tool used by Wikipedia. Although it is not as friendly as other applications, knowing how it works is quite useful, in the way that Wikipedia can be considered as the mother of all the wikis. A new topic is proposed each year, which will also be adapted to the third unit as well. At the same time, the students are working on the wiki; they must be reading and commenting proposed on the Mendeley group, introduced in unit 1.
The use of blogs in a foreign language teaching & learning context
This unit will be centred on creating a collaborative blog with the same teams formed in the previous unit so that they could be able to present the same information in a different format. We will use WordPress. There will be more bibliography at Mendeley to be read and commented at the same time they work so that they can acquire a solid training not only by practising but also reading theories and conclusions achieved by different authors experts on the use on blogs to teach and deal with foreign languages.
Social networks applied to foreign languages learning
This is unit aims to spread the content produced in the units 2 and 3 in general and academic social networks, either aimed for general purposes or for academic ones. The students will also learn how to use academic social networks to generate knowledge, be updated on their topics of interests, etc.
The use of web-based tools for monitoring and feedback retrieval in a foreign language context
This final unit will serve to teach the students how to retrieve data from all the tools they have been using with the purpose of analysing it later to obtain relevant conclusions in the same way they had to do with future academic works. They will have to prepare a final presentation in a group to be presented orally.
