About this title

Synopsis:

Contemporary Computer-Assisted Language Learning (Call) is a comprehensive, one-volume work written by leading international figures in the field focusing on a wide range of theoretical and methodological issues. It explains key terms and concepts, synthesizes the research literature and explores the implications of new and emerging technologies.
The book includes chapters on key aspects for Call such as design, teacher education, evaluation, teaching online and testing, as well as new trends such as social media. The volume takes a broad look at Call and explores how a variety of theoretical approaches have emerged as influences including socio-cultural theory, constructivism and new literacy studies. A glossary of terms to support those new to Call as well as to allow those already engaged in the field to deepen their existing knowledge is also provided. Contemporary Computer-Assisted Language Learning is essential reading for postgraduate students of language teaching as well as researchers in related fields involved in the study of computer-assisted learning.

Review:

This book has a wide range of topics and would be useful for language teachers, education technologists and researchers who have a desire to understand more about how technology can be used in language acquisition. * Association for Learning Technology #altc blog * The current volume amply demonstrates that CALL has developed massively in terms of the expertise it can draw upon. The authors in this book are highly regarded as experts and most if not all have spent long years researching their chosen topics. If we were to compare this work with one of even a decade ago, the differences would be resounding... This contextual understanding and attention to detail is evident chapter by chapter, topic by topics in this volume. Cumulatively, the text represents a huge resource for anyone involved in the research and practice of CALL, both old hands and newcomers alike... This now leads me to what has impressed me so much about this book on topics present and accounted for, the discussion is state-of-the-art and written by top experts in the field. It will not surprise you, therefore, that I wholeheartedly recommend it to you. -- Professor Mike Levy, The University of Queensland, Australia (From the Foreword)
