Title: Mediating Discourse Online
Edited By: Sally Sieloff Magnan
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AALS%203
Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 3
Description:

Information and communication technology is transforming our
notion of literacy. In the study of second language learning, there is
an acute need to understand how learners collaborate in mediating
discourse online. This edited volume offers essays and research
studies that lead us to question the borders between speech and
writing, to redefine narrative, to speculate on the consequences of
many-to-many communication, and to ponder the ethics of
researching online interaction. Using diverse technologies (bulletin
boards, course management systems, chats, instant messaging,
online gaming) and situated in different cultural environments, the
studies explore intercultural notions of identity, voice, and
collaboration. Although the studies come from varying theoretical
perspectives, they point, as a whole, to insights to be gained from an
ecological approach to studying how people make discourse online.
The volume will especially benefit researchers in the digital arena and
instructors who must consider how online interaction affects
language learning and use.
