Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Series Title: Studies in Second and Foreign Language Education [SSFLE] 5
Description:

While educators and educational psychologists debate the influence of media
on learning, there can be little doubt that media is now an integral constituent
of any educational context. In particular, computer and internet media, with
their immense processing power and multimedia capabilities, can have
significant bearing on learning processes and outcomes in today's learning
environment. Such media, which are increasingly designed to be highly
interactive and adaptable, can enable reflective, productive and
communicative activities and have much potential for foreign language
learning.

The book contains 16 papers which look at different forms of media and
explore how these affect or can be used effectively in foreign language
education. The first of three parts focuses on important theoretical and
pedagogical issues in selecting and using media. In the second part,
insightful empirical research findings are presented on the contributions of
different forms of media in language teaching and learning, including their
effect on learners' learning motivation. The third and concluding part of the
book provides in-depth accounts of how media can be harnessed to drive
innovative curricular practice as well as students' evaluations of these
curricular projects.
