Item Summary

Title:Googleries, oui oui oui!
Authors:Watson, Katherine
Author Affiliation:Katherine Watson - Coastline Community College
Date Issued:2012 has risen to worldwide prominence as the preeminently visited site on the Internet. Besides having developed simply an uncluttered search engine, along with an unintimidating interface, Google is in continuous creative progress, conceiving an increasingly multifaceted set of Web-based products facilitating and expediting access to audio, video, or print data at any time anywhere and in multiple tongues. Serendipitously enough for students of language and culture online, these Google tools comprise user-friendly enhancements that demonstrably facilitate learning. At Coastline Community College, twenty self-selected learners of French language and culture online have participated in a project nicknamed “Googleries”, in which training and encouragement have been afforded in seven freely available “Googleries”; these comprise some of the most easily accessible Google tools designed and developed in the target language to enrich study. Besides learning vocabulary and grammar, Coastline Googleries project participants have acquired a new awareness of alternative linguistic pragmatics, worldviews, and technical skills.
