Brave New Digital Classroom, Second Edition

Technology and Foreign Language Learning

Brave New Digital Classroom examines the most effective ways to utilize technology in language learning. The author deftly interweaves the latest results of pedagogical research with descriptions of the most successful computer-assisted language learning (CALL) projects to show how to implement technology in the foreign language curriculum to assist the second language acquisition process.

This fully updated second edition includes new chapters on the latest electronic resources, including gaming and social media, and discusses the realities and potential of distance learning for second language acquisition. The author examines the web, CALL applications, and computer-mediated communication (CMC), and suggests how the new technologically assisted curriculum will work for the foreign-language curriculum. Rather than advocating new technologies as a replacement for activities that can be done equally well with traditional processes, the author envisions a radical change as teachers rethink their strategies and develop their competence in the effective use of technology in language teaching and learning.

Directed at all language teachers, from the elementary school to postsecondary levels, the book is ideal for graduate-level courses on second language pedagogy. It also serves as an invaluable reference for experienced researchers, CALL developers, department chairs, and administrators.

Robert J. Blake is director of the UC Consortium for Language Learning and Teaching, professor of Spanish and classics, and chair, Designated Emphasis in Second Language Acquisition, at the University of California, Davis.

Reviews

"A cohesive, updated overview of how technology can be effectively used in second and foreign language teaching and learning. This book serves as a useful handbook for a wide audience including all language teachers."—Linguist List

"No education collection should be without this guide on how to proceed."—Midwest Book Review

"Blake succeeds in painting the possibilities of technology integration for those contemplating its use in the classroom. The book is suitable for multiple audiences, including the methods courses, in which it could serve as a springboard for further discussion of appropriate and meaningful use of technology in language learning."—Raquel Oxford, Midwestern State University, Hispania
