Little, David, Ed.; O Meadhra, Bebhinn, Ed.
A seminar sponsored by the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics on the role of media and media technologies in second and foreign language learning is reported. The organization of this report reflects the program of the seminar. Four plenary papers established some broad applied linguistic perspectives and presented an overview of recent applications of audio, video, and computers. The papers and authors are as follows:"Media, Media Technologies, and Language Learning: Some Applied Linguistic Perspectives" (David Little); "Using Audio and the Language Laboratory" (Christine Helot); "Issues in the Use of Video Technology in the Language Classroom" (Mary Ruane); and "Computers in Language Teaching" (Geraldine Kennedy). A "fairground" portion of the seminar included the following brief commentaries: "Answers to wh-Questions about 'Authentik'" (Sean Devitt); "'Dushlan'--Maire Trease Ni Dhonnchadha Agus" (Eamonn O Donaill); "'Cogar'--Language, Experience, and Culture" (Liz McSkeane); "'Camino a Castilla'--a Multi-media Communicative Course in Spanish for Advanced Students" (Miranda Stewart); "'Kaleidoscope'--A French-Language Video Kit" (Tony Weymes); "'Daoine ag Caint'--Irish Language Videos" (Helen O Murchu); "'Cluichi Teana sa Seomra Ranga'--Language Games in the Classroom" (Noirin Ni Nuadhain); "Parlez-Vous Banque?" (Francoise Blin and Seamus Kennedy); "Some Reflections on an Experiment in Computer-Assisted Language Learning" (Carlos Lobo); and "Interactive Video with the Autotutor" (Helene Conway-Mouret). A concluding round-table session discussed issues raised by the seminar. (LB)
