Technology in Language Education: Meeting the challenges of research and practice

Linda Mak, Sue Chang, Pionie Foo, Judy Hunter, Merry Keung, Joyce Lee, Mok Wa & Nick Noakes (Eds).

The CD contains the proceedings of the Technology in Language Education Conference, in pdf format. In addition to a selection of the papers presented, there are over 100 conference photos, five PowerPoint files, and video & audio clips of the keynote/invited presentations.

The papers are broadly classified into the five themes of: Conceptualisation, Research, Learning, Teaching and Assessment Tools, Praxis, and New Horizons. This is a reflection of the current stage of development in which Computer-Enhanced Language Learning (CELL) finds itself, as well as the infusion of technology into language learning, teaching and research. It not only impacts on the how of our praxis but also on the what.

Penetrating Discourse: Integrating Theory with Practice in Second Language Teaching

Alban Furness, Grace H. Y. Wong & Liza Wu (Eds).

The articles in this collection are ‘penetrating discourse’ in two senses: first, the analyses presented are penetrating and thought-provoking in their own way; secondly, they are all built up on the theme of ‘penetrating’, or analysing, discourse in the broadest sense, including different genres (EAP, ESP, hedging, web-based courses, e-mail and written messages), as well as literacy practices (reading and writing), in different cultural settings (China, Japan, the United Kingdom and Australia). In each article, we witness theory blended with practice, or practice supported, or inspired, by theory. The idea of ‘context’ forms a common thread which can be identified throughout the book, illustrating the fact that research into the teaching and learning of a second language, as well as the teaching and learning per se, cannot be decontextualised.

Text Analysis in Computer Assisted Language Learning: Applications, Qualifications and Developments

John C. Milton & Keith S. T. Tong (Eds).

The twelve working papers contained in this collection were delivered at an international seminar on Text Analysis in CALL, sponsored by the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology and the (then) City Polytechnic of Hong Kong, held in March 1991. The papers illustrate much of the range of interests and concerns of language teachers and linguists raised by the development of electronic editing and text-analysis techniques. The discussions deal with applications and qualifications of these techniques in the classroom, as well as developments in text analysis.
