Learner Activities in a Collaborative CALL Task
Leahy, C.
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v21 n3 p253-268 Jul 2008
This paper briefly discusses different research approaches in CALL and makes a case for applying grounded theory (GT) to data gathered from an electronic role-play conducted in L2. The article shows that this method can help gain a better understanding of what learners do when engaged in the task. Through the process of open coding, four categories emerge which are introduced in turn. (Contains 9 figures and 9 notes.)
