Description

Education has undergone numerous radical changes as the digital era has transformed the way we as humans communicate, inform ourselves, purchase goods, and perform other mundane chores at home and at work. Social media is one of those phenomena that has affected not only society at large but has heavily influenced educational processes around the world. The demand for and availability of networked educational services have also increased, enabling online education to gain popularity and become an internationally accessible option. Furthermore, universities and other private higher educational institutions embrace digital technology and have adopted the new learning medium as they realize the prospects of having the world’s population as a potential source of revenue. A related phenomenon has been the proliferation of massive open online courses (MOOCs). These have changed the ways in which learners interact with educational institutions, professors, and with each other. At the same time, the upsurge in digital education has raised issues with language as online learners from all over the world and from a plethora of cultures and foreign languages have found themselves challenged to take full advantage and optimally benefit from the same educational media and resources that English-speaking counterparts have tapped into.

Digital Pedagogies and the Transformation of Language Education will answer questions of how to optimize language learning in such a defining new era and what the educational, sociological, and technological dimensions of radical change are. The book will explore the different challenges and the multitude of opportunities that new and transformative pedagogies have enabled. Beyond teaching/learning practices being presented, this book also focuses on how learners will adjust to the technology and the readiness of practitioners to psychologically adjust to the changing and demanding media technology has unleashed. The chapters provide international experiences and perspectives on the impact of e-educational technologies on student experience, success, learning, and comprehension in the realm of language learning specifically. This book is essential for educational technologists, online instructional designers, education policymakers and administrators, curriculum developers, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students who are interested in digital language pedagogies.
