Microcomputers in Bilingual and Foreign Language Instruction: A Guide and Bibliography.
Designed to help educators use computers comfortably, effectively, and economically as classroom instructional tools, this document focuses on the use of computers for teaching English, English as a Second Language (ESL), and foreign languages. The educational implications of introducing computers into language instruction are discussed with emphasis on the practical aspects of establishing computer-assisted language instruction---from selecting equipment to securing suitable computer programs compatible with the conventional classroom instructional materials. The use of the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Bibliography (CALIB) located at the National Center for Bilingual Research is then introduced. The six appendices which comprise the major part of this publication list (1) funding sources (federal and state, private foundations, and computer manufacturers); (2) colleges and universities that offer courses or master's programs in educational uses of computers; (3) the 108 books and articles currently listed in the CALIB database; (4) CALIB software programs and source information; (5) persons and schools using computer assisted instruction (CAI); and (6) organizations for educators using CAI.
