Non-linear learning the 'open' way: language acquisition on the Web
AbstractThe present paper considers the use of the Web in second language learning within a theoretical framework combining the constructivist theory of learning and the open learning paradigm. It begins by exploring the fundamentals of this mainly learner-centred model and goes on to show how this framework can be translated into a Web-based course to enhance business Italian. Within this course, different kinds of materials from the Web are gathered by broad themes or objectives, are annotated and made accessible to all potential users regardless of their knowledge level or background.
