Second-Language Acquisition and the Information Age: How Social Software Has Created a New Mode of Learning
Davies, Renaud J.
TESL Canada Journal, v28 n2 p11-19 Spr 2011
We are presently witnessing a great shift in how young people learn and in the benefits that social software has to offer. New technologies can augment and build on traditional forms of social learning, giving birth to an improved and more multifaceted approach to knowledge acquisition that complements the current more general shift toward an increasingly technological world. The purpose of this article is not only to consider how social learning through the use of technology benefits learners, but also to investigate the implications of such learning and technology for curriculum development.
