Description & Coverage
Description:

Web 2.0 technologies, open source software platforms, and mobile applications have transformed teaching and learning of second and foreign languages. Language teaching has transitioned from a teacher-centered approach to a student-centered approach through the use of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and new teaching approaches.

Engaging Language Learners through Technology Integration: Theory, Applications, and Outcomes provides empirical studies on theoretical issues and outcomes in regards to the integration of innovative technology into language teaching and learning. This reference wok discusses empirical findings and innovative research using software and applications that engage learners and promote successful learning, essential tools for educational researchers, instructional technologists, K-20 language teachers, faculty in higher education, curriculum specialists, and researchers.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer Technology in Teacher Training and Development
  • Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL)
  • Foreign Language Acquisition
  • Language Courseware Design, Development, and Evaluation
  • Language Learning
  • Language Teaching
  • Technology Tools
  • Web 2.0 Technologies
Reviews & Statements

Researchers and practitioners in linguistics, language acquisition, and particular languages present a collection of empirical studies that investigate and evaluate the effectiveness of computer-aided language learning (CALL) programs and projects that are informed by second-language acquisition theory and practice. They cover technology integration for second-language research and teaching, technology-mediated second-language learning processes, beliefs and attitudes toward technology integration, and a systematic review of CALL research.
