Choosing and Evaluating Effective ESL Integrative Learning Systems.
Careless, Paul
This paper reviews pedagogical principles surrounding learning styles that have continued to attract educators, particularly those in English as a Second Language (ESL) to Integrative Learning Systems (ILS) as a learning medium. The paper first examines the rationale for using technology in education. It briefly defines Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Computer-Enhanced Language Learning (CELL), and integrative Computer-Assisted Language Learning (ICALL), and examines the similarities and differences between them. Five principles (Hoven, 1999) that should be considered when ILS is applied to ESL instruction are outlined. Four questions (Squires and McDougall, 1994) for evaluating an ILS are then outlined. The paper concludes that ILS can be used effectively to supplement traditional classroom instruction. (Contains 19 references.) (AEF)
