Benefits/Components of CALLA. What tools this semester realize one or moreof these benefits? (Warschauer & Healey,1998).B. What tools this semester realize the eightcomponents listed on p.5 (Warschauer, 1996;Egbert, 2005; Egbert & Hanson-Smith, 2007)?All: Are there other language learningbenefits/components that you have seen NOTlisted here?
Benefits (Warschauer & Healey, 1998)1. Multimodal practice with feedback2. Individualization in a large class3. Pair and small group work on projects, eithercollaboratively or competitively4. The fun factor5. Variety in the resources available and learning stylesused6. Exploratory learning with large amounts of languagedata7. Real-life skill-building in computer use.Others?
Components (Warschauer, 1996; Egbert,2005; Egbert & Hanson-Smith, 2007)1. Learners have opportunities to interact and negotiatemeaning;2. Learners interact in the target language with an authenticaudience;3. Learners are involved in authentic tasks;4. Learners are exposed to and encouraged to produce variedand creative language;5. Learners have enough time and feedback;6. Learners are guided to attend mindfully tothe learning process;7. Learners work in an atmosphere with anideal stress/anxiety level; and8. Learner autonomy is supported.Others?
The (near) futuretechnology & learning(caveat: I really have no idea)1. Mobile devices ubiquitous2. Changing definitions of languagecompetency (literacy)3. Web-based applications & collaboration4. Hybridization of education (driven by avariety of stakeholders)
