Lamb, Martin; Arisandy, Fauziah Eka – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2020
Profound changes in the literacy practices of young people in the early part of this century mean that many are encountering and using English in their personal lives while studying the language formally in school or university, potentially shaping their language development and attitudes. This article reports a research project which investigated…

Ma, Qing – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2020
This study investigated how one type of learner-generated information and content, i.e. inter-group peer online feedback, provided on a wiki writing assignment for an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course, could contribute to student L2 writing. Using a mixed method approach, more than 1000 entries of online peer comments were collected,…

Wrigglesworth, Jonathan – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2020
Successful second language learning can be seen as occurring in two arenas; the exposure and learning which occurs, under the guidance of a formal education setting, under the guidance of an instructor and that which occurs informally, under the guidance of the learner or incidentally as the learner pursues other activities. As smartphones have…

Chen, Cheryl Wei-Yu – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2020
The advent of technology has made the Internet a fertile ground for much literacy learning to take place, and how to use the Internet discourse for language learning remains to be explored. The current study adopted a language-awareness approach to raise students' awareness of the forms and function of online language. A sample online comment…

Ebadi, Saman; Rahimi, Masoud – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
Drawing on Vygotskian sociocultural theory of mind and social constructivism, and adopting a sequential exploratory mixed-methods approach, this study explored the impact of online dynamic assessment (DA) on EFL learners' academic writing skills through one-on-one individual and online synchronous DA sessions over Google Docs. It also investigated…

Paul, Jing Z.; Friginal, Eric – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
This study investigated the effects of Facebook and Twitter on foreign language (Chinese) learners' written production in both short- (10 days) and long-term (50 days) pseudo-experimental settings. Adopting two concepts (i.e. symmetric vs. asymmetric) from matrix theory in social network analysis, we categorized Facebook as a symmetric social…

Lee, Ju Seong – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
This study examined factors that might have affected EFL learners' willingness to communicate (WTC) in the extramural digital (ED) environment, a rapidly emerging L2 communication context. The investigator conducted a semi-structured interview with 98 EFL students from three Korean universities. Drawing on grounded theory,…

Cohen, Cathy; Wigham, Ciara R. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
This study on online L2 interactions compares lexical word search between an audioconferencing and a videoconferencing condition. Nine upper-intermediate learners of English describe a previously unseen photograph in either the videoconferencing or the audioconferencing condition. A semantic feature analysis is adopted to compare their…

Martín-Monje, Elena; Castrillo, María Dolores; Mañana-Rodríguez, Jorge – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Data mining is increasing its popularity in the research of Technology-Enhanced Language Learning and Applied Linguistics in general. It enables a better understanding of progress, performance and possible pitfalls, which would be useful for language learners, teachers and researchers. Until recently it was an unexplored field, but it is expected…

Henry, Michael; Carroll, Fiona; Cunliffe, Daniel; Kop, Rita – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Advances in technology are currently helping to speed up the globalisation of 'super' languages. One can argue that at the same time technology might be used to help reverse the decline of less widely spoken languages. Cada Dia (CD) is a social learning method which uses online web meeting platforms, in combination with asynchronous learning…

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…

Tseng, Miao-fen; Lin, Chin-Hsi; Chen, Henny – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Online kindergarten to twelfth grade (K-12) language learners have usually been found to hold more negative perceptions of their courses and to perform less well academically than their face-to-face counterparts, despite the well-attested benefits of computer-mediated communication in language learning. In an attempt to improve upon such outcomes,…

Zou, Bin; Li, Hui; Li, Jiaying – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Mobile apps are broadly used by students in and after class to improve their language skills. This study aimed to investigate how a curriculum app and a social communication app can be integrated into English language teaching and learning and what sorts of tasks can be employed to enhance learners' EFL learning. A curriculum app was created by…

Sydorenko, Tetyana; Daurio, Phoebe; Thorne, Steven L. – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
To address the problem of limited opportunities for practicing second language speaking in interaction, especially delicate interactions requiring pragmatic competence, we describe computer simulations designed for the oral practice of extended pragmatic routines and report on the affordances of such simulations for learning pragmatically…
