Sánchez-Castro, Olga; Strambi, Antonella – CALICO Journal, 2017
This study explores the potential contribution of Eggins and Slade's (2004) Speech Functions as tools for describing learners' participation patterns in Synchronous Computer-Mediated Communication (SCMC). Our analysis focuses on the relationship between learners' self-efficacy (i.e. personal judgments of second language performance capabilities)…

Vosburg, Donald – CALICO Journal, 2017
The use of video games as a learning tool, in particular massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), continues to grow, as does the research in this field of study; research to date has revealed benefits to the language learner as well as hindrances and research gaps (Godwin-Jones, 2014). This study examines participant perspectives on group…

Scholz, Kyle – CALICO Journal, 2017
Massively multiplayer online role-playing games like World of Warcraft are ideally suited to encourage and facilitate second language development (SLD) in the extramural setting, but to what extent do the language learners' actual trajectories of gameplay contribute to SLD? With the current propensity to focus research in digital game-based…

Sydorenko, Tetyana; Hsieh, Ching-Ni; Ahn, Seongmee; Arnold, Nike – CALICO Journal, 2017
A significant body of research has examined language learners' attitudes toward particular technologies used in foreign language classrooms. However, literature is scarce on foreign language learners' beliefs toward computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in general. To narrow this gap, we investigated the constructs that compose a system of…

Tsai, Mei-Hsing; Kinginger, Celeste – CALICO Journal, 2015
In synchronous computer-mediated contexts, peer-to-peer interaction at the microlevel has received little scrutiny. In applying a conversation analysis approach, this study scrutinizes the precise nature of peer-to-peer advice giving and receiving. In this process, an advice giver can be viewed at certain moments as more competent to evaluate a…

Jones, Linda C.; Murphy, Cheryl A.; Holland, Amalie – CALICO Journal, 2015
This study investigated the quantity and characteristics of student language production, discourse functions, and morphosyntactic features in three different discourse settings--face-to-face (F2F), lab-setting chatroom interactions (Lab), and any place/any device chatroom interactions (APAD). Discourse was examined through the replication and…

Rott, Susanne; Gavin, Bianca – CALICO Journal, 2015
This investigation reports on a conceptual replication of Goldman et al. (2012) which sought to determine processing patterns of better and poorer learners as they attempted to comprehend and learn from seven textual sources on the Internet in their native language English. The aim of the current investigation was to explore how reading multiple…

Bytheway, Julie – CALICO Journal, 2015
Initiated in response to informal reports of vocabulary gains from gamers at universities in New Zealand and the Netherlands, this qualitative study explored how English language learners autonomously learn vocabulary while playing massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs). Using research processes inherent in Grounded Theory, data…

Rott, Susanne; Weber, Elizabeth Dolly – CALICO Journal, 2013
In this paper we outline an approach to learner preparation that provides a framework to effectively structure a collaborative and cooperative student research assignment using a wiki site as a writing platform. While students are familiar with posting pictures and videos online, they may not be aware of how to effectively integrate text and…
