This contribution aims to present a project that considers the possible use of hypermedia in teaching Italian as a foreign or second language. Building hypermedia for language teaching involves gathering a number of multimedia documents such as picture files, audio files, videos, texts, interactive communications like ‘chats’ or ‘tandem’ and so on, on a specific topic, so as to create a melting pot of information connected together via links, which include images, sounds and tastes, among which the students can navigate. It is a melting pot which takes on a virtual dimension, and which turns into a conceptual map (Balboni, 2012) of the student who links language to reality. The multicode environment is thus transferred to a hypermedia level where both traditional teaching and nontraditional teaching can integrate and form a new type of learning that may be defined hyper-learning. Hypermedia, as used in language teaching, provide increased motivation in a society flooded by digital technology. Potentially, hypermedia can include several technologies used in teaching and allow teachers to take advantage of methodological innovation with an everincreasing potentiality.

Abstract

This contribution aims to present a project that considers the possible use of hypermedia in teaching Italian as a foreign or second language. Building hypermedia for language teaching involves gathering a number of multimedia documents such as picture files, audio files, videos, texts, interactive communications like ‘chats’ or ‘tandem’ and so on, on a specific topic, so as to create a melting pot of information connected together via links, which include images, sounds and tastes, among which the students can navigate. It is a melting pot which takes on a virtual dimension, and which turns into a conceptual map (Balboni, 2012) of the student who links language to reality. The multicode environment is thus transferred to a hypermedia level where both traditional teaching and nontraditional teaching can integrate and form a new type of learning that may be defined hyper-learning. Hypermedia, as used in language teaching, provide increased motivation in a society flooded by digital technology. Potentially, hypermedia can include several technologies used in teaching and allow teachers to take advantage of methodological innovation with an everincreasing potentiality.
