Student Attitudes and Perceptions of Using Facebook for Language Learning
Gamble, Craig; Wilkins, Michael
Dimension, p49-72 2014
This research provides insight into Japanese students' perceptions and attitudes of participating in activities through Facebook for language learning. In addition, the authors discuss the overall implications of and potential uses for Facebook in the field of second language learning and teaching. Ninety-seven students from three private universities in Japan participated in this study. A 26-item quantitative questionnaire using a 7-point Likert scale and an open-ended qualitative questionnaire were used in this study. The results showed a small increase in positive attitudes toward most activities for language learning following the completion of the study compared to prior perceptions, but there were mixed attitudes toward using Facebook in an educational environment.
