HYPERTEXT: READER FORMATION AS AUTHOR
MetadataShow full item record
This article deals with the use of hypertexts on readers/authors formation. Therefore, its objective is to discuss changes of authorship concept before this new internet reading and learning format and its impact on education. Through a bibliographical research, it is observed that using such a non-linear reading process in which student has unlimited access to other texts according to his choices, learner is a potential author because hypertexts differ significantly from printed texts since they are dynamical and flexible due to links possibilities and dialogues with other semiotic interfaces, allowing a unique and original text construction. Then, with teacher support on an epilinguistic activity and technology use, it is possible to have a more mature reader/author. Finally, although language teaching has been reduced merely to terminology, to syntactic analysis and to classification, it is concluded that TIC use along with its vast intertextuality and semiotic dialogue may help to change that fact.
