Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Developing Professional-level Language Proficiency
Edited By: Betty Lou Leaver
Boris Shekhtman
Description:

This book examines approaches to teaching students who aim to make the leap
from "advanced" or "superior" proficiency in a foreign language to
"near-native" ability. While there are an abundance of publications on
classroom techniques and methods for lower levels of instruction, almost
nothing exists about the transition, which is vital for those who intend to
use foreign languages in high-level arenas. Compiled by leading
practitioners in this area of foreign language teaching, the book fills the
gap for those developing programs at the "advanced to distinguished" level.
