CALICO 2017 - Multilingualism and digital literacies | TELT | Scoop.it
Proposals may explore the conference theme or address any area of technology pertaining to language learning and teaching. Presentations may be in either traditional or practitioner research styles, grounded in theory and/or methodology, covering topics in language acquisition and integration of software and technology into the learning environment. A formal paper need not accompany a presentation at the conference. However, presenters are encouraged to submit a formal paper for review to the CALICO Journal, on the same topic (or any other). The proposal and its guidelines will require the following information: title, type of presentation, 100-word abstract, 300-word description, presenter/co-presenter contact information, and technology needs.Click here to edit the content

Call for Papers: Replication in computer-assisted language learning

Call for Papers: Replication in computer-assisted language learning | TELT | Scoop.it

"In celebration and acknowledgement of our field’s maturity, the editors of the CALICO Journal invite submissions of research articles based on replication studies in a CALL context. We issue this invitation early to encourage CALL scholars to conduct replication studies for the CJ issue to be published in January 2015, but also welcome submissions based on studies already underway. The studies may be replications of earlier published studies in CALL or of non-CALL research in a CALL context.  We welcome both approximate and conceptual replications from any theoretical perspective or research paradigm. We especially encourage projects that reflect collaboration between senior faculty and graduate students."

CALICO Journal

Here's the May issue of CALICO journal (Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium), with a review of Web 2.0 and SLA (Wang & Vasquez), a study of group dynamics in wikis (Arnold, Ducate & Kost), a telecollaboration paper (Schenker), one on Facebook (Mitchell), voice blogs (Sun), task-based CMC (Yanguas), a web-based multimedia program (Pardo-Ballester) and an overview of distance teaching (Vorobel & Kim). 

 

A new spotlight feature focuses on digital flashcards for vocabulary (Zhu, Fung Bnu-Hkbu & Wang).

 

Not open access, unfortunately, but worth a look if only to find out about "social loafing and free riding" in US university German classes ... (Arnold, Ducate & Kost).

The role of qualitative approaches to research in CALL contexts: Closing in on the learner’s experience: Levy 2015

The article considers the role of qualitative research methods in CALL through describing a series of examples. These examples are used to highlight the importance and value of qualitative data in relation to a specific research objective in CALL. The use of qualitative methods in conjunction with other approaches as in mixed method research designs are a particular focus. It is argued that qualitative methods are especially effective when used in this way. The discussion also aims to elaborate upon the role of qualitative approaches within CALL specifically, as a domain for research study with particular attributes that require a qualitative orientation. Here the use of electronic dictionaries is considered. Dictionary use is suited to such a discussion because it occurs frequently in everyday life, suggesting a qualitative approach, as well as in research studies that are strictly controlled, as in a quantitative approach. The contrast is instructive and helps demonstrate the respective strengths and limitations of each method. Also central to the discussion is the language learner. A number of the studies described emphasize the importance of listening to the students’ voice in the qualitative component (e.g., Conole, 2008; Jones, 2003). It is in the unpacking of what students actually do moment-by-moment in CALL tasks and activities that best illustrate the strengths of qualitative methods in enhancing our understanding of mediated learning and thereby driving productive research agendas.
