Cognition and Courseware Design by Teachers: The Concept of Multimediatizing.
Toma, Tony
This paper demonstrates that the axis between cognition and multimedia language teaching is very short by introducing three fundamental concepts: (1) mediatizing, i.e., the direct use of any medium as a way of expressing oneself; (2) multimediatizing, i.e., the choice of a multimedia support to express a didactized informational content; and (3) re-multimediatizing, i.e., follow-up of learners' activity and appropriate modification of courseware. The LAVAC (Laboratoire Audio-Visuel Actif-Comparatif [Audio-Visual Active-Comparative Laboratory]) system, courseware developed in France, which includes a student interface and teacher software for distance and real-time tutoring in a computerized laboratory, is described.
