ICT-BASED TASKS FOR LANGUAGE LEARNERS: THE SPANISH PROPOSAL

This paper presents the tenets of a European funded project (530863-LLP-1-2012-1-NL-KA2-KA2MP) in which the University of Granada is a consortium partner. Our goal is twofold: we put together ICTs and the so-called CEFR in order to enhance Task Based Language Teaching (TBLT). Despite the strong emphasis that the CEFR places on TBLT, this approach still constitutes a major challenge for a significant number of FL teachers, not so much because they are not familiar with the concept itself or the communicative benefits that can be derived from it, but because of the requirements and practical conditions to be met, especially at the levels of operationalization, implementation and evaluation. In general, teachers agree that tasks, being in principle learner-centred and involving problem-solving procedures or the development of products, not only help learners meet practical challenges, but also facilitate interaction and make learners responsible for the outcomes of the communication process. This project adds the technological dimension to TBLT so that at the end we come up with a set of ICT based tasks which may work well within any language learning context. To achieve this, the twenty partners (two per country) involved in the project will work cooperatively trialling each other's tasks. In this paper we present the Spanish tandem's tasks and explain how they can be performed in the language classroom.
