Computer-Assisted Language Learning in Bilingual Vocational Education.
This manual is designed to provide bilingual educators with information concerning the realistic potential of microcomputers in vocational education programs. Discussed first are the benefits, limitations, and hardware configurations of computer-assisted language learning (CALL). The next chapter deals with courseware and instructional management software for use in CALL and includes a sample rhyming dictionary and reviews of four commercially available language arts-related computer programs. The relative advantages of CALL programming in BASIC and LOGO are compared. Concluding the manual is a chapter on using a teamwork approach in developing programs. Appendixes to the handbook include a glossary and computer programs for a vocational math guessing game, one-key English and Spanish word processors, and a guessing game based on shop vocabulary.
