Preparing EFL Student Teachers with New Technologies in the Korean Context
Jeong, Kyeong-Ouk
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v30 n6 p488-509 2017
This study investigates a Korean English as a foreign language (EFL) student teacher education programme which is intended to develop prospective teachers' digital literacy and to help them understand innovative pedagogy of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in Korean EFL context. This paper presents ideas of effective curriculum development for a CALL-integrated EFL student teacher training programme while helping student teachers make effective and creative use of digital technologies both in their own language learning and in their future language teaching. Local voice and insight of implementing CALL into Korean EFL educational context was provided as well as global perspectives in CALL. The results revealed that the use of CALL could promote Korean EFL student teachers' confidence in developing technological skills and pedagogical expertise. This study may have implications that this CALL-integrated EFL student teacher training course can pinpoint and fill the existing gap between the current and upcoming educational situation regarding the use of CALL in Korean EFL context and help student teachers consider themselves as confident and competent users of CALL for the future.
