Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (Tell): An Update and a Principled Framework for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Courses
Chau, Juliana; Lee, Alfred
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v40 n1 Win 2014
The range and number of technologies currently available have yielded both opportunities and challenges for language educators. This study aims to review recent technology-enhanced language learning (TeLL) research, and to examine their potential relevance to EAP pedagogy, curricula, assessment and instruction. The results of this study show TeLL research with rising interest in vocabulary, grammar and writing, but less so in speaking, listening, and reading. The results also reveal a shift from a tool-centric view of technology use to one that emphasises the technology-pedagogy-human alliance in the last decade, noting three emerging trends in recent TeLL studies, namely, those that are multi-purpose, multi-genre, and multi-role/skill in design and evaluation. The lack of a holistic approach to TeLL for EAP courses to date, however, has made it necessary and desirable to develop a framework for EAP-specific TeLL, to identify a principle for a generic TeLL programme, and to propound ways of operationalizing such a framework
