Call for Papers--
5th Anniversary Special Issue
CALL Technologies and the Digital Learner

Volume 6, No. 3
Deadline: May 15, 2006

In celebration of the 5th Anniversary of the founding of The Reading
Matrix: An International Online Journal, the Reading Matrix is pleased to
announce a special issue on "CALL Technologies and the Digital Learner."
The aim of the issue is to serve as a 'state of the art' survey of the
field that introduces teachers, faculty, and graduate students to the major
issues and various subfields in CALL. Specifically, this volume will
explore the relationship between technology and language teaching/learning
broadly conceived (i.e., foreign/second language teaching, EFL/ESL,
bilingualism/biculturalism) from four broad but distinct perspectives:
Theoretical Considerations and CALL, Language Teaching and CALL, Language
Learning and CALL, and Future Applications and CALL. Each paper will
include a literature review, discussion of the essential principles of the
subfield under consideration, questions for reflections, and relevant
bibliography. Topics under each of the four themes include, but are not
limited to:

Theoretical Considerations and CALL

Teacher attitudes toward language teaching and CALL technologies
CALL software design, programming, and CALL/web-based authoring tools
Digitizing/streaming media and CALL applications
Electronic/online environments (e.g., MP3s, DVDs, corpus linguistics,
electronic dictionaries/books, glossing, the World Wide Web, web-quests and
web-stories) and classroom applications
Online and offline resources/courses for language teaching (AI systems,
WebCTs, blackboards, distance learning, hypertext annotations, human
language technologies, speech technology, machine translation, discussion
lists, e-mail, chat rooms)

Language Teaching and CALL

Social aspects of language teaching in the digital age and CALL
National foreign language, TESOL, and Bilingual education standards,
competencies, and CALL
CMC in electronic/online environments and language classrooms
Course management systems and CALL
Curriculum articulation, syllabus design, and CALL

Language Learning and CALL

Affective factors of language learning in the digital age and CALL
Language proficiencies--Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking--and CALL
Internet-based learning and CALL
CALL-centered biliteracy/literacy activities, skills, and strategies
Computer aided assessment (CAA) practices and language learning

Future Applications and CALL

Online language learning in the 21st century
How CALL technologies will change language teaching and learning
The impact of CALL technologies on language teaching and learning
Training students and teachers to become proficient users of CALL technologies
CALL and the future of Multimedia Language Learning Centers

We welcome both practical and research focused articles (including action
research). Articles should have a clear focus and be written so that they
are accessible to a broad audience of language educators, including those
individuals who may not be familiar with the particular subject matter
addressed in the article.
