Innovation in Language Support: The Provision of Technology in Self-Access
Reinders, Hayo; Lazaro, Noemi
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v20 n2 p117-130 Apr 2007
Self-access centres are sometimes portrayed as being at the forefront of pedagogical innovation. They are also said to be technology-rich language learning environments. In practice, however, the application of technology in a self-access environment has proven to be a challenge. This article focuses on 10 self-access centres that were found to be the most intensive users of technology out of a total of 45 centres investigated worldwide. The article describes the range of technologies used by these centres and the types of administrative procedures and student learning supported. It also compares these centres with the other 35 in the study to identify how they differ in the way they make use of technology. (Contains 6 tables.)
