Now newly updated, this classic for TESOL courses is packed with articles by new authors, and additional exercises and activities after each chapter. This volume demonstrates how a theoretical framework based on ESL and SLA research, as well as the new National Education Technology Standards, can be applied in typical CALL environments, whether for one computer or many. This second edition highlights new tools, discusses new research, and proposes new practical applications. Chapters cover topics in visual literacy, critical thinking, creativity, and extensive content- and project-based learning. Includes research and discussion activities for TESOL theory and practice, and an essential list of online resources.
through Technology. 2007. Elizabeth Hanson-Smith
and Sarah Rilling, Editors
While posing important questions about how learning proceeds with new technologies, this volume demonstrates how teachers captivate the imagination of learners, from schoolchildren to postgraduates, by providing real-world purposes for language. The authors are from educational institutions in many regions of the world, and describe technology use from the lowest levels, such as word processing and scanning, to high-end multimedia and interactive communications through voice and video on the Internet. Forms a companion of case studies to CALL Environments.
Technology-Enhanced Learning Environments. 2008. Elizabeth Hanson-Smith, Editor
This volume presents case studies in which teachers have adapted and pioneered teaching innovations ranging from simple additions to traditional classroom teaching to radical alternatives that change the nature of language learning and teaching. Topics include: Building a Computer Learning Center; Organizing the Curriculum, Engaging Students, and Training Teachers. [No longer available from TESOL; a few may be found at Amazon.com.]
