Instagram: an Australian-Catalan telecollaboration experiment (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.53) Autors/ores Andreu Pedró-García Universitat Jaume I Paraules clau: telecollaboration, online learning, Catalan as a second language, intercultural competence, interaction, Instagram Resum This article explores the pedagogical potential of a project carried out with Catalan as a second language learners and native Catalan speakers using the digital application Instagram within a university setting. This project ran parallel to in-person language classes, and it combined photographs and written expression to make the learning process more enriching, direct and connected to the real world. The main objectives of this project were first to foster Catalan learners’ interaction and contact with native speakers and thus improve their communicative competence, and secondly to introduce both groups to sociocultural aspects of the two cultures to help them more directly attain intercultural competence. The resulting data shed light on forms of remote interaction with native speakers as well as on the suitability of social media for collaborative activities within a university setting. Key words: telecollaboration, online learning, Catalan as a second language, intercultural competence, interaction, Instagram.Original source: Revista d’Innovació i Recerca en Educació, 9(1): 11-28 (2016) Descàrregues PDF (English) Publicat 2020-11-04 Número Núm. 10 (2020) Secció Pedagogia Llicència The intellectual property of articles belongs to the respective authors.On publishing articles to the journal Catalan Social Sciences Review (CSSR), authors accept the following terms:Authors assign to Philosophy and Social Sciences Section (a subsidiary of Institut d’Estudis Catalans) the rights of reproduction, communication to the public and distribution of the articles published in Catalan Social Sciences Review (CSSR).Authors are responsible for obtaining permission for the reproduction of all graphic material included in articles.Philosophy and Social Sciences Section declines all liability for the possible infringement of intellectual property rights by authors.The contents published in the journal, unless otherwise stated in the text or in the graphic material, are subject to a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (by-nc-nd) 3.0 Spain licence, the complete text of which may be found at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/es/deed.en.
