Today's young people--the Net Generation--have grown up with technology all around them. However, teachers cannot assume that students' familiarity with technology in general transfers successfully to pedagogical settings. This volume examines various technologies and offers concrete advice on how each can be successfully implemented in the second language curriculum. Following the Introduction by Raquel Oxford and Jeffrey Oxford, this book contains the following chapters: (1) (Re)situating the Role(s) of New Technologies in World-Language Teaching and Learning (Remi A. van Compernolle and Lawrence Williams); (2) Internet and Language Teaching/Learning: Reflections on Online Emerging Technologies and Their Impact on Foreign-Language Instruction (Ana Nino); (3) Digital Natives and Their Self-Rated Electronic Literacy Skills: Empirical Findings From a Survey Study in German Secondary Schools (Carolin Fuchs); (4) Hybridizing the Curriculum: Needs, Benefits, Challenges, and Attitudes (Senta Goertler); (5) Reaching Students: A Hybrid Approach to Language Learning (Lauren Rosen); (6) The Influence of Technology on Second-Language Writing (Raquel Oxford); (7) Podcasting and the Intermediate-Level Spanish Classroom (Nancy Bird-Soto and Patricia Rengel); (8) Podcasting in the Language Classroom: Inherently Mobile or Not? (Lara Ducate and Lara Lomicka); (9) The Coalescence of Spanish Language and Culture Through Blogs and Films (Vanessa Lazo-Wilson and Clara Ines Lozano Espejo); (10) Pragmatic Variation Among Learners of French in Real-Time Chat Communication (Claire A. McCourt); (11) These Horses Can Fly! and Other Lessons From Second Life: The View from a Virtual Hacienda (Gloria B. Clark); (12) A New Language for the Net Generation: Why "Second Life" Works for the Net Generation (Jessamine Cooke-Plagwitz); (13) Web-Based Language Portfolios and the Five Cs: Implementation in Foreign Language College Classrooms (Jane Blyth Warren); and (14) Awakening to the Power of Video-Based Web-Conferencing Technology to Promote Change (Paula Charbonneau-Gowdy).
