Rethinking Language Learning from the Learner's Position
Language learning applications are available since decades and you can find hundreds of them all over the Internet. Even in KDE Edu, we have a multitude of those applications. Parley, KWordQuiz, KAlphabet, Artikulate, Kiten, are the most recent examples. But there are also (now deprecated) applications like KLatin or KVocTrainer. Our goal is to revisit and refresh them with a new spirit. Unlike most previous approaches, we want to look from the perspective of an integrated language learning process. We ask, how do those processes look like, where could the existing applications work better together, we should applications broken apart to provide better solutions?
In a nutshell, our main goals are:
- Set the focus on the learner and the language learning process.
- Create an environment that supports learning by positive feedback.
- Enable the learner to create learning-flows with easiness that focus on achievements and not on applications.
- time steps
