Wu, Wen-Chi Vivian; Yang, Jie Chi; Scott Chen Hsieh, Jun; Yamamoto, Tosh – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2020
Motivation has played an essential role in learning, leading to various research areas across diverse disciplines. While the literature is replete with findings supporting the essentiality of motivation in an individual's academic success, demotivation (a.k.a. negative motivation) has been underexplored, even though it has been a widespread…

Tsai, Shu-Chiao – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
This study investigates the impact on extemporaneous English-language first drafts by using Google Translate (GT) in three different tasks assigned to Chinese sophomore, junior, and senior students of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) majoring in English. Students wrote first in Chinese (Step 1), then drafted corresponding texts in English (Step…

Tsai, Pi-hua – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
In foreign language education, instruction in pronunciation has received less attention than instruction in other language skills. Many teachers do not know how to teach correct pronunciation due to lack of knowledge in pronunciation pedagogy even if they want to or they assume that students pick it up on their own. With the development of…

Hsu, Hsiu-Chen – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
Prior research has shown that EFL learners who wrote collaboratively with partners using wikis improved the content quality and language accuracy of their L2 individual writing more than students who wrote individually. Drawing on the dataset from Hsu and Lo's study, the current study explores the nature of the students' collaborative dialogue…

Tsai, Kuei-Ju – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
Corpora are well-known for the affordance to make linguistic regularities salient. Since the coinage of the term 'data-driven learning' (DDL) in the 1990s, much has been done to investigate the effects of DDL on learning vocabulary, most notably lexico-grammatical patterns. However, less researched is how learners construct vocabulary knowledge…

Chen, Chih-Ming; Chen, Liang-Chun; Yang, Shun-Min – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
In recent years, numerous English vocabulary learning-assisted apps have been developed to enlarge learners' English vocabulary through mobile learning. However, the ability of learners to engage in self-regulated learning (SRL) importantly affects performance in autonomously learning English vocabulary using mobile apps. Therefore, this study…

Tseng, Jun-Jie – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) proposed by Mishra and Koehler is a theoretical construct of teacher knowledge that describes how teachers teach subject matter content using certain instructional methods with specific technology in particular contexts. This study aims to explore the interface between TPACK and SLA, intending to…

Yang, Yu-Fen – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
This study reports on how students construct new language knowledge by indirect feedback in web-based collaborative writing. Indirect feedback (text organization, reader-based perspectives, and clarity of purpose) encourages students to negotiate meaning instead of merely copying peers' direct feedback on grammatical corrections. According to the…

Cohen, Anat; Ezra, Orit – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Contextualised mobile assisted language learning (MALL) has been known for its potential in language learning rooted in social constructivism theories. However, a consistent approach to constituents of contextualised MALL, in addition to a quantitative tool to evaluate it, is missing in reported case studies. The present research, drawing upon…

Priego, Sabrina; Liaw, Meei-Ling – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
An Activity Theory framework has been increasingly applied for understanding the tension or contradictions in telecollaboration. However, to date, few researchers have applied it to the analysis of digital stories, and none of them, to our knowledge, have used it to analyze the co-creation of multilingual digital stories. In this study, we explore…

Chen Hsieh, Jun Scott; Wu, Wen-Chi Vivian; Marek, Michael W. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Instruction in English is a priority around the globe, but instructional methodologies have not always kept pace with the changing needs of students. To explore the benefits of the flipped classroom model for learners of English as a Foreign Language, the researchers used flipped learning and Wen's Output-driven/Input-enabled model to design a…

Chang, Jia-Wei; Lee, Ming-Che; Su, Chien-Yuan; Wang, Tzone-I – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) learners generally encounter difficulty in using some special rules of Chinese grammar because such grammar points do not exist in their native languages. CFL learners require an effective learning strategy to assist them in acquiring a greater understanding of Chinese grammar. Thus, we integrated a…
