This volume focuses on computer- and digitally-assisted language learning in all of its forms: technology-enhanced language learning, network-based language learning, mobile-assisted language learning and so on, in close relation to the topic of sustainability. How can these technologies and techniques be implemented in a sustainable and repeatable way? The book covers a wide range of areas in terms of this "sustainability". These include:

(1) education (teacher/learner training)
(2) normalisation (integration)
(3) systems (reliability, support, development)
(4) mobility (mobile-assisted language leaning)
(5) innovation (trends, research)

The volume samples research and practice in CALL from around the world, organised into sections. It has an introduction and a conclusion written by the editors which covers the state of the art at the moment and directions it is likely to take in the future.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
