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: Integrating Computer-Mediated Communication into Foreign Language Education
Subtitle: A Vietnamese Sociocultural Context of Higher Education
Written By: Long V. Nguyen
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu/
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Second Langauge Teaching 18
Description:

The book investigates the nature of both synchronous and asynchronous computer-mediated communication and how these two modes of communication may complement each other and contribute to collaborative learning in an EFL classroom environment. Results from the research indicated promising avenues for the application of various CMC technologies in the Confucius heritage language classroom. The quality of discussion was persuasively better in the online synchronous mode. The use of wikis as a new platform for peer exchanges can be considered an innovation, liberating the students from the conventional, narrow, and linear practice of pen-and-paperbased peer editing. Furthermore, indications of trends in terms of quality were positive toward the online essays. Learners’ reflections on and perceptions of the introduction of CMC into language learning presented a potential picture of a technology-enhanced classroom. This book is therefore aimed at researchers, language teachers, and graduate students with an interest in computer-mediated communication and computer-assisted language learning. Long V Nguyen, PhD in Applied Linguistics, is a lecturer at the University of Danang. His research interests are in the areas of educational technology and communication in foreign language learning and teaching, sociocultural perspectives in language learning, digital literacy, and language teacher education.
