Conversations in Slow Motion: Computer-Mediated Communication in the Foreign Language Classroom.
Beauvois, Margaret Healy
Canadian Modern Language Review, v54 n2 p198-217 Jan 1998
Reviews early research on innovative use of networked computers in language learning, focusing on a study of computer-mediated discussion that examined student/student and student/teacher interactions in a college French course. Due to rapid nature of computer-mediated exchanges, the "conversation" is a hybrid somewhere between writing and speaking, seen to enhance language learning benefits. (Author/MSE)
