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).

Shona Whyte's insight:

Audio recording of research articles from top computer-assisted language learning journal CALICO produced using text-to-speech software.  A good way to optimise your commute, and to get round the paywall if you don't have a CALICO subscription, though it has a little of that "at the next roundabout, take the second exit" quality ...
