Narrative Perspectives on Self-Directed Foreign Language Learning in a Computer- and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning Context

Narrative Perspectives on Self-Directed Foreign Language Learning in a Computer- and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning Context | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Millions of learners around the world use self-directed computer- and mobile-assisted language learning (CALL, MALL) programs to study foreign languages. One such program, Duolingo, currently attracts over 120 million users and is claimed (by the publisher) to be a highly effective method of language learning. While L2 researchers have shown limited engagement with similar large-scale commercial programs, issues related to learner persistence, motivation, and program efficacy have been reported. This study investigates the experiences and efficacy of learning Turkish on Duolingo for 12 weeks, drawing on a methodological tradition of researcher narratives. Three graduate student researchers kept diaries and completed weekly reflections on their Turkish learning experiences, which served as source material for individual narrative analysis. The resulting narratives were discussed and analyzed collaboratively from an ecological perspective. Strategies used by the researcher-participants were heavily influenced by ecological factors. Persistence in learning was found to be influenced by ecological factors and varied across timescales. Ultimately, the researcher-participants had limited Turkish learning outcomes and felt demotivated to continue studying on Duolingo. Implications for CALL/MALL design include presenting materials in a meaningful context, capitalizing on social affordances, and providing meaningful feedback to learners in order to facilitate learning and goal-setting.

Alejandro Lopez laverde's curator insight, April 28, 12:32 PM
I have analyzed the procedure with CALL/MALL and I must say that to me they do not play a major role compared to motivation and usefulness realization because these strategies do not become the goal, they only act as a mere tool to reach it, and this is what demotivates learners, studying to be able to succeed on an application for language learning is not as enriching as realizing the real use of having good language skills for daily life.

Gracie Delaney's curator insight, March 10, 11:43 AM
This article was a great article because I really enjoy modern day technology as much as the next teen does. Especially one as unique as this. This article relates to our chapter of language because it is based on a learning tool teaching people new languages. Like we discussed in class language is something you take everywhere with you it is your luggage. With learning a new language while living in a different place or coming from a different place it can lead to the diffusion of languages as discussed in the book.
Westmore Smith's curator insight, November 11, 10:35 PM
The action-oriented approach to FSL learning opens space for Virtual Reality (VR) and using the Common European Framework of References (CEFR) tasks for language learning. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) combined with VR can be created to correspond with the various levels of "can do" statement in CEFR. The ability to give immediate assessment with respect to pronunciation and/or grammar will allow the student to develop those listening and speaking skills that is limited in the classroom.

50 Of The Best Writing Apps For The iPad -

50 Of The Best Writing Apps For The iPad - | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
The best writing apps for iPad, like any concept of ‘best,’ is subjective and further based on need and circumstance.

Are you a poet drafting when inspiration strikes? A student taking notes and writing essays? A novelist that usually uses a desktop, but needs their new iPad Pro to do work on the go?

While the idea of writing more than a few hundred words on an iPad may seem crazy, using the iPad as a powerful portable writing tool allows you to take advantage of inspiration whenever and wherever it strikes. And with iPad screens now approaching 13″ and capable of supporting USB connections to enable standalone keyboards, it’s easier and more comfortable than ever to draft a masterpiece while away from your desk with the help of an app, an iPad, and a good idea.
