Computing Laboratory Classes as Language Learning Environments
Okan, Zuhal
Learning Environments Research, v11 n1 p31-48 Jan 2008
Whereas most research on computer-assisted language learning (CALL) tends to rely heavily on the assessment of academic achievement and language learning outcomes, this study involved an evaluation of the psychosocial learning environment in computing laboratories. The What Is Happening In this Class? (WIHIC) and Attitude to Computers and Computing Courses (ACCC) questionnaires were administered to 152 university students undertaking 1-year compulsory education courses in English at the Centre for Foreign Languages (YADIM) at Cukurova University in Turkey. Analysis of data illuminated students' perceptions of the computer laboratory class as a language learning environment and paved the way for further learning environment studies involving both students and teachers.
