In doing so, Levy investigates several research studies which draw upon Second Language Acquisition SLA and which are set in the context of social media and language games. The authors begin with an exploration of the traditional understanding of the term before offering readers an expanded taxonomy which includes the awareness of social practices. Finally, they examine the implications that digital literacy has for language learning activities.
This is achieved by emphasising the relationships between the tools, the interactions, and the outcomes in relation to the learning task. Their analysis is built around two case studies.
An extensive literature overview is followed by the exploration of drawbacks and benefits of using computers for testing purposes. The chapter also forecasts future perspectives. Lee explore key theoretical perspectives on the role of age, gender and learner identities in CALL research and practice. After discussing theoretical approaches, the authors explore implications that learner variables have for technology-mediated language learning.
The authors call for developing more dynamic conceptions of learner identity. In his contribution, Godwin-Jones identifies the potential of online exchanges and ensuing computer-mediated communication for developing a deeper, intercultural perspective onto the culture under study. In the initial part, the authors identify different types of technology-enhanced language learning contexts and the challenges they pose. Attention is given to the role of specific local educational contexts and the remedial role of technology in those local contexts where opportunities for teacher education remain scarce.
The authors begin with definitions and examples of such limitations, followed by a discussion of how they relate to various media and how relationships between them reflect various languages and cultures.
Kern and Malinowski recognise teacher education as a strong launching pad for educational change. The chapter concludes with a prediction of the boundaries which are yet to emerge. The author examines available online opportunities including MOOCs, professional associations, and available communities of practice. The final section discusses the role of standards in teacher education and sketches the prospects for its future.
The authors define the concept of sustainability and provide a review of related literature. Finally, they propose a four-pillar systematic view of sustainable CALL. This part begins with Chapter 17, in which Francesca Helm and Sarah Guth guide the reader from a discussion of several theoretical frameworks for and models of telecollaboration to a practical consideration of challenges involved in planning and implementing it in higher education.
The chapter concludes with suggestions for future normalisation of telecollaboration as a mainstream academic practice.
Services on Demand Journal. Second, SNS can be used to research attitudes, behaviors and profiling the members who interact in these networks Kozinets, ; Ridings et al. To that end, we will focus on two European countries with clearly different usage levels of SNS, and with distinct cultural dimensions according to Hofstede A second aspect concerns the power relations between interlocutors. Noels, K.
The authors investigate current pedagogical practices and examine motivation and user profiles, development of socio-pragmatic competence, and identity issues as the primary contributions from research-based studies. She explores individuality and collectivity as important dynamics involved in the teaching of writing and addresses implications that CSCW has for teacher education.
The author urges CALL practitioners and researchers to reconsider the very nature of technology-mediated writing and the related concept of literacy. In her investigation of the potentials of IWB for language education, she draws on theories of SLA and the findings of prominent research studies. Importantly, the author revisits the competencies required of language teachers to use IWBs in compliance with current theories of language pedagogy. The author explores applicable theories and provides suggestions as to how mobile devices can be implemented in language education.
He also outlines the key considerations emerging from related research and puts forward ideas about the future of mobile learning. The author describes significant features of the major virtual worlds that have a history of being employed for language learning. He then takes a critical look at 14 learner-based studies, highlighting not only the positive but also negative findings. The chapter concludes with a discussion of a number of areas identified as promising for future investigation.
Pete Sharma and Kevin Westbrook build Chapter 23 on theoretical underpinnings of both learning modes, and then offer a thorough overview of related practicalities. It contains six insightful contributions addressing various aspects of language corpora. It begins with Chapter 24, in which Martin Warren highlights the key principles of DDL and addresses it as a form of self-directed learning. The chapter provides examples of classroom application of DDL followed by a critical analysis of its strengths and limitations. The authors outline key findings from research into spoken corpora and use a case study to investigate pedagogical implications of using spoken corpora for language learning.
She highlights the benefits of using a written corpus, in particular a pedagogical one, in helping learners upgrade their writing skills. You submitted the following rating and review.
