Second Language Teaching and Learning with Technology: Views of Emergent Researchers
Thouësny, Sylvie, Ed.; Bradley, Linda, Ed.
The aim of this book was to present innovative applications of technology in second language teaching and learning, as well as to explore the transformation of the different techniques to different theoretical frameworks. It has also been desired to have a representation of researchers from different parts of the world as contributors. When the reviewing process was finished, there were nine selected chapters from seven different countries: Canada, Finland, France, Ireland, Spain, Sweden, and Singapore. Thus, the chapters of this book consist of the work of eleven young researchers within the field of net-based language learning. These nine chapters all deal with topical areas of Internet-based Computer-assisted language learning (CALL). Following Notes on Contributors, Acknowledgements, and Foreword, the following papers are included in this book: (1) Introduction on Views of Emergent Researchers in L2 Teaching and Learning with Technology (Sylvie Thouësny and Linda Bradley); (2) Personal Learning Environments in Higher Education Language Courses: An Informal and Learner-Centred Approach (Ilona Laakkonen); (3) QuickAssist: Reading and Learning Vocabulary Independently with the Help of CALL and NLP Technologies (Peter Wood); (4) Self-Assessment and Tutor Assessment in Online Language Learning Materials: InGenio FCE Online Course and Tester (Ana Sevilla-Pavón, Antonio Martínez-Sáez, and José Macario de Siqueira); (5) Mobile-Assisted Language Learning: Designing for Your Students (Agnieszka Palalas); (6) A Design for Intercultural Exchange--An Analysis of Engineering Students' Interaction with English Majors in a Poetry Blog (Linda Bradley, Berner Lindström, Hans Rystedt, and Magnus Gustafsson); (7) Developing Sociolinguistic Competence through Intercultural Online Exchange (Mathy Ritchie); (8) Second Language Learning by Exchanging Cultural Contexts through the Mobile Group Blog (Yinjuan Shao); (9) Dynamically Assessing Written Language: To what Extent Do Learners of French Language Accept Mediation? (Sylvie Thouësny); and (10) Computer-Mediated Negotiated Interactions: How is Meaning Negotiated in Discussion Boards, Text Chat and Videoconferencing? (Cédric Sarré). A name index is included.
