The role of qualitative approaches to research in CALL contexts: Closing in on the learner’s experience: Levy 2015

The article considers the role of qualitative research methods in CALL through describing a series of examples. These examples are used to highlight the importance and value of qualitative data in relation to a specific research objective in CALL. The use of qualitative methods in conjunction with other approaches as in mixed method research designs are a particular focus. It is argued that qualitative methods are especially effective when used in this way. The discussion also aims to elaborate upon the role of qualitative approaches within CALL specifically, as a domain for research study with particular attributes that require a qualitative orientation. Here the use of electronic dictionaries is considered. Dictionary use is suited to such a discussion because it occurs frequently in everyday life, suggesting a qualitative approach, as well as in research studies that are strictly controlled, as in a quantitative approach. The contrast is instructive and helps demonstrate the respective strengths and limitations of each method. Also central to the discussion is the language learner. A number of the studies described emphasize the importance of listening to the students’ voice in the qualitative component (e.g., Conole, 2008; Jones, 2003). It is in the unpacking of what students actually do moment-by-moment in CALL tasks and activities that best illustrate the strengths of qualitative methods in enhancing our understanding of mediated learning and thereby driving productive research agendas.

Le numérique en éducation : une perspective sociocritique

Alors que les discours médiatiques et politiques ne cessent de bruire des promesses du numérique pour l’éducation (l’inflation autour des MOOCs en constituant un nouvel exemple), cette journée d’étude vise à structurer une perspective émergente, la perspective sociocritique, propice pour envisager le numérique en éducation complémentairement aux approches traditionnellement centrées sur la salle de classe.
L’approche sociocritique s’articule autour des trois dimensions suivantes :
