Technologies for foreign language learning: a review: Golonka et al., 2014

Technologies for foreign language learning: a review: Golonka et al., 2014 | TELT | Scoop.it

(2014). Technologies for foreign language learning: a review of technology types and their effectiveness. Computer Assisted Language Learning: Vol. 27, No. 1, pp. 70-105. doi: 10.1080/09588221.2012.700315

Shona Whyte's insight:

Library study of CALL research with some harsh conclusions:

 

"most CALL studies seem to focus on either describing the affordances offered by particular types of technology or measuring their effects on students’ affective reactions,
such as increased motivation or increased enjoyment of learning activities. Although describing technology’s uses and students’ enjoyment when using it are admirable and useful goals, it remains unclear to what extent the activities supported by the technology or the potential increased motivation attributed to
them actually increase students’ learning. One might make the argument that, for example, increased motivation and increased options for self-selecting study activities will lead to deeper engagement with language, more time on task, and,
thus, increased proficiency. However, for most technologies, actual increases in learning or proficiency have yet to be demonstrated" p. 92


"the next phase of CALL research should focus on how to optimize L2 learning in two distinct but related areas. The first area involves affordances that technologies offer by applying fundamental principles of learning from SLA and cognitive psychology (for example, optimal retrieval intervals). The second should
investigate the specific characteristics of technologies that may have differential effects on long-term storage in memory" p. 93

Vocational English mobile learning route | VISIR

Vocational English mobile learning route | VISIR | TELT | Scoop.it

Wanna have a a conversation in English  while you walk?  The project is all about learning English outside the classroom by walking through a mobile learning route packed with  qr-code.


Qr-codes are linked to YouTube-videos, where a native English speaker asks different questions. Students read the qr-codes with the qr-reader app on their mobile device. Then they watch the videos and answer the questions by making a video, recording audio clip, making a comic strip and/or writing the answer on the notebook on their device. 

 

Students can send their products to their own blog and/or they can be watched together in the classroom.

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.

Learner-centred EFL with young German learners | VISIR | TELT | Scoop.it

Students explore and evaluate independently the improvement of their own learning via the use of digital media in concrete learning settings. This project is realised within the framework of “Karlsruhe – Stadt der jungen Forscher” (Karlsruhe – City of young researchers) an initiative of the Körber-Stiftung, Deutsche Telekom and Robert Bosch Stiftung.


At the beginning of the project the students identified problems regarding their learning processes and developed ideas how those problems could be solved through the use of digital media. 3 concrete scenarios were developed for testing.

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.
