Creativity and Collaboration: Using CALL to Facilitate International Collaboration for Online Journalism at a Model United Nations Event
Sheehan, Mark D.; Thorpe, Todd; Dunn, Robert, Paper presented at the 2015 EUROCALL Conference (22nd, Padova, Italy, Aug 26-29, 2015)
Much has been gained over the years in various educational fields that have taken advantage of CALL. In many cases, CALL has facilitated learning and provided teachers and students access to materials and tools that would have remained out of reach were it not for technology. Nonetheless, there are still cases where a lack of funding or access to CALL tools prevents teachers and students from reaping the benefits of CALL. Furthermore, in countries inundated by technology, opportunities for students to create and collaborate using CALL may get lost amid the noise of the latest program, or the trendiest learning tools. The project described in this article involves students in a different way to use CALL for learning; it has them work together using technology, troubleshooting problems, and creating online news stories. This article describes a digital journalism simulation called JUEMUN Journalism. JUEMUN, the Japan English University Model United Nations, is an annual event that brings together students from around the globe to participate in a Model United Nations (MUN). A component of this event includes teams of journalists who cover the events at the MUN, and report on them in four formats: podcasts, video broadcasts, a written chronicle, and editorial cartoons.
