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Is the term CALL still appropriate?"The implications of the research presented here are clear: The term CALL is obsolete, because its focus is limited to the computer, and because of its emphasis on conscious learning.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.

Peripatetic considerations on research challenges in CALL | Colpaert | CALICO Journal

Peripatetic considerations on research challenges in CALL

 

An imaginary walk around the cathedral of Amiens in France. A virtual discussion between two CALLers who have a lot in common, but whose paths did not cross frequently. They discuss a number of topics and issues in CALL research such as academic evaluation, the pressure to publish, research design and changing roles.



Shona Whyte's insight:

Accessible introduction to the notion of "designedness," covering both technological and pedagogical aspects of the learning environment.

CALL Research Conference: Antwerp, July

XVIth International CALL Research Conference at Universiteit Antwerpen (Antwerp, Belgium), 7-9 July 2014.

The conference theme will be:  RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN CALL


Starting points for this conference are the 12 challenges Jozef Colpaert recently identified and presented at WorldCall 2013 in Glasgow, and which he classified into three categories: contextual (academic meritocracy, academic value of CALL, myths/hypes and broad-public perception), methodological (design, replication, slow research and transdisciplinarity), and epistemological (open, psychological, smart en sustainable aspects).

Transana: transcript/analysis

Transana: transcript/analysis | TELT | Scoop.it

Transana is software for professional researchers who want to analyze digital video or audio data. Transana lets you analyze and manage your data in very sophisticated ways. Transcribe it, identify analytically interesting clips, assign keywords to clips, arrange and rearrange clips, create complex collections of interrelated clips, explore relationships between applied keywords, and share your analysis with colleagues. The result is a new way to focus on your data, and a new way to manage large collections of video and audio files and clips.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Alternative to ELAN for audio/video transcription.  Also free.

WorldCALL 2013 - Gary Motteram's notes

WorldCALL 2013 - Gary Motteram's notes | TELT | Scoop.it

This Google Doc was shared by Gary Motteram; it has his notes from the recent WorldCALL 2013 conference with names and main points of the sessions he attended.

Shona Whyte's insight:

With nine parallel sessions going on simultaneously at an important conference held only every 4 or 5 years, it was hard to hear everything you might be interested in.  

 

These notes are a useful supplement to abstracts and short papers which are accessible from this link: http://www.worldcall2013.org/programme.asp

International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching: call for papers, 20 Feb

International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching: call for papers, 20 Feb | TELT | Scoop.it

Submission Due Date
2/20/2014

Guest Editors
Dr. David Barr

Introduction
WorldCALL has held an international conference every five years since the opening of its first conference in Australia in 1998, the second in Canada in 2003 the third in Japan and the fourth was hosted for the first time in Europe, promoted by the University of Ulster in Glasgow in July 2013. One of the unique features of the conference is that the participants of WorldCALL include not only the researchers from advanced countries, but also those from a range of countries that are underserved in the CALL areas. The theme of the 2013 conference was “Sustainability and Computer-Assisted Language Learning” to reflect the focus on the future direction and development of CALL.

Objective
This special issue would like to invite those from the WorldCALL 2013 Conference to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal.
