Grigoryan, Tsoghik
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v41 n2 Spr 2015
Today's language classroom is undergoing an irreversible hyperbole and one of the most powerful drivers of this transformation is ICT. Digital classroom not only exposes the learners to grammatical language of linguistics, but rather the everyday life of the language in use (Thurlow & Mroczek, 2011). The aim of this study was to explore the nature of iPad based free digital discourse in a digital language classroom and capture lexical-stylistic features used in Emirati teenage language learners' online communications. This mixed method case study approach implemented sentiment detection theoretical framework on Blackboard-learn educational learning platform to identify common or unique features of digital discourse in paperless language classroom and to show how they affect EFL students' speech behaviors.
