Implications on Pedagogy as a Result of Adopted CALL Practices
Pagel, James W.; Lambacher, Stephen G., Paper presented at the EUROCALL 2016 Conference (23rd, Limassol, Cyprus, Aug 24-27, 2016)
As part of a longitudinal study on learner and instructor attitudes and patterns of computer and mobile device usage, we have attempted to identify how language instructors and students value their use in L2 learning. During the past five years at Aoyama Gakuin University (AGU) in Tokyo, we have surveyed both students and instructors annually in two separate schools. In the present study, results from the surveys administered to both students and instructors within the two schools are examined and compared, with a focus exclusively on the survey questions corresponding to pedagogically-related issues. Overall, the results show a steady movement on the part of instructors away from a more traditional approach to teaching English, emphasizing grammar and vocabulary memorization, to a more communicative-based approach. Similarly, survey responses from students revealed a clear preference for learner-centered classroom instruction over a traditional grammar-translation and teacher-centered approach.
