Narrative Perspectives on Self-Directed Foreign Language Learning in a Computer- and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning Context

Narrative Perspectives on Self-Directed Foreign Language Learning in a Computer- and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning Context | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Millions of learners around the world use self-directed computer- and mobile-assisted language learning (CALL, MALL) programs to study foreign languages. One such program, Duolingo, currently attracts over 120 million users and is claimed (by the publisher) to be a highly effective method of language learning. While L2 researchers have shown limited engagement with similar large-scale commercial programs, issues related to learner persistence, motivation, and program efficacy have been reported. This study investigates the experiences and efficacy of learning Turkish on Duolingo for 12 weeks, drawing on a methodological tradition of researcher narratives. Three graduate student researchers kept diaries and completed weekly reflections on their Turkish learning experiences, which served as source material for individual narrative analysis. The resulting narratives were discussed and analyzed collaboratively from an ecological perspective. Strategies used by the researcher-participants were heavily influenced by ecological factors. Persistence in learning was found to be influenced by ecological factors and varied across timescales. Ultimately, the researcher-participants had limited Turkish learning outcomes and felt demotivated to continue studying on Duolingo. Implications for CALL/MALL design include presenting materials in a meaningful context, capitalizing on social affordances, and providing meaningful feedback to learners in order to facilitate learning and goal-setting.

Alejandro Lopez laverde's curator insight, April 28, 12:32 PM
I have analyzed the procedure with CALL/MALL and I must say that to me they do not play a major role compared to motivation and usefulness realization because these strategies do not become the goal, they only act as a mere tool to reach it, and this is what demotivates learners, studying to be able to succeed on an application for language learning is not as enriching as realizing the real use of having good language skills for daily life.

The Flipped Classroom Approach: The benefits and challenges

The Flipped Classroom Approach: The benefits and challenges | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Flipped classroom learning isn’t all that new. In fact, the concept was already in use by educators in places of eminence like Harvard University as far back as 1991. However, the corporate world often tends to take a “wait and see” approach before wholeheartedly embracing new concepts.

So, what does it mean to flip your classroom? Put simply, it means reversing the traditional roles of class work and homework. Flipped courses provide lectures and other informational material for learners to consume on their own time, via asynchronous self-study content, video-on-demand, or other similar means.

Then, there are also components of the model where other flipped classroom activities, like group interactions, collaborative projects, and instructor-led lectures, which happen in synchronous settings – a conference room, a convention center or a corporate training facility.

Unlike a traditional, classroom-centric course, or a purely distance-learning program, the flipped classroom approach is a blended learning technique that marries the best of synchronous and asynchronous teaching approaches.
