Title: Using Activity Theory to understand the contradictions in an online transatlantic collaboration between student-teachers of English as a Foreign Language
Author: Victoria Antoniadou
Institution: Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: This article describes the contradictions reported by student-teachers in Barcelona who engaged in telecollaboration with transatlantic peers via Second Life, during their initial training in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The data analysis draws upon Grounded Theory and is theoretically informed by Activity Theory and the notion of contradictions. The study discusses technology-based, intra- and inter-institutional contradictions, their impact on the development of the telecollaborative activity, and outcomes in bolstering student-teachers’ conceptual understanding of Network-Based Language Instruction.
