Knowledge Transfer Project (T1)

Developing an interactive workbook for English foreign language teaching:

Integrating state-of-the-art form and meaning assessment from computational linguistics into a current workbook for the Gymnasium

Start of this project: October 1, 2016, duration: 3 years

Summary:

The goal of transfer project T1 is to connect the fundamental research results of project A4 (CoMiC: Comparing Meaning in Context) on meaning assessment as a subfield of Computational Linguistics with the analysis and feedback needs of real-life Foreign Language Teaching and Learning. The project makes this concrete by exploring how the computational analysis of meaning and form can be used to provide immediate, individualized feedback to English language learners working on a range of tasks. In collaboration with the publisher Diesterweg, the project pilots the development of an intellegent electronic workbook based on a current workbook approved for 7th grade English classes in Gymnasium.
