Investigating the Classroom Applications of Computers on EFL Courses at Higher Education Institutions in UK
Jarvis, Huw
Journal of English for Academic Purposes, v3 n2 p111-137 2004
This paper begins by documenting the positive contribution of English as a Foreign\Second Language (EFL\ESL) to computers in language learning and teaching and then proposes a general framework, applicable in a range of contexts, for investigating their pedagogical applications in the EFL\ESL classroom. The paper then reports on a study which examined the impact that computers are having on the delivery of EFL courses at British Universities. The findings of a national survey based on questionnaires are documented and quantitatively analysed. These established three kinds of information: what kinds of courses are run; which kinds of computer applications are being used; the attitudes of those responsible towards the current use of computers on these courses. These questions raise a number of issues primarily regarding the role of computers in English for Academic Purposes. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
