Shona Whyte's insight:

The kindest comment is "the theory is ... very young."  Geoff Jordan applies Occam's razor like George RR Martin

Is CALL Obsolete? Jarvis & Krashen, 2014

Is CALL Obsolete? Jarvis & Krashen, 2014 | TELT | Scoop.it
Is the term CALL still appropriate?"The implications of the research presented here are clear: The term CALL is obsolete, because its focus is limited to the computer, and because of its emphasis on conscious learning. Alternative acronyms such as Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) or Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) account for some changes in the field, but continue to focus on conscious learning. It is time to move beyond CALL. MALU (Mobile Assisted Language Use) as defined by Jarvis and Achilleos (2013) is a significant improvement when discussing electronic devices: MALU covers more than desktop and even laptop computers, and makes it clear that more than language instruction and/or learning is involved."
Shona Whyte's insight:

Two main reasons to reject the CALL label involving the L of CALL: Krashen's well-known objection to the role of conscious "learning" and the C of CALL: L2 speakers'  patterns of internet access in English via mobile rather than desktop devices.

Stephen Krashen on Language Acquisition: Input and the affective filter

A 15 minute excerpt from a television lecture by Stephen Krashen on second language acquisition, recorded in the late 1980s. 

 

The Monitor Model in a nutshell: "we acquire language when we get comprehensible input in a low-anxiety environment."  The input hypothesis, the silent period, the affective filter, all presented in non-technical language using low-tech props.

 

Many communicative language proponents would still go along with much of what Krashen has to say; take away the reference to Chomsky's LAD (language acquisition device) and add a little focus on form and we're not so far from contemporary second language teaching methodology.
