To conclude the analysis of the graph moststudents concluded that it is important to learn to manage technology in an educational way for us to cover ourweaknesses and improve our skills.

Graphical Results 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 0 Dynamic and Practical Working in teams Participative way Fun and Interesting way WayIn the graphic above we can interpret the answers that the fifth semester students gave to the question: How Id like tolearn in Call II?; we see reflected in these responses that students are conscious and know that the best way to acquireknowledge is through practice, because practicing what we learned find a better way to gain knowledge and improve ourskills, due to it is important to adapting to the new ways of teaching, always with the goal of being the best in our work.
ARTICLESCommunicative abilities in L2 mediated by technology in the context of task based teaching and cooperativelearning“INTRODUCTIONThe study proposed here is framed in the field of applied linguistics, specifically in the teaching of second languages, fromthe creation of a linguistic intervention module that uses a methodology "mixed" based on task-based approach and thecooperative approach, in addition to incorporating the CALL application through the use of E-mail, and Internet Weblogsas learning tools. This arises from the need to introduce the teaching-learning methodologies efficient learningenvironments mediated by technology. The objective is to develop and implement a methodology to increasecommunicative ability in English as a foreign language through the use of CALL, the tasks and cooperative approach andobtain empirical evidence of the effectiveness of the proposed methodology.Learning Computer Assisted Language (English, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL)) in turn responds to theneed to incorporate technology into the classroom, because students are embedded in a technological society where cellmp3, mp4, I-pod and internet are used in order to communicate, obtain and / or store information. In this context, CALL isdedicated to exploring the role of these technologies in the teaching and learning of languages. It aims to improve learningin those learning a language through computational means, allowing the learner to develop, expand and refine theircommunication skills in a new language.One of the fundamental aspects of CALL methodology is to determine the teaching approach that guides the design anddevelopment of a computer application for language teaching. In this context, the tasks and cooperative approaches have
proved effective (Morales and Ferreira, 2008). The task-based approach aims to involve students in solving meaningfultasks with real and useful communication objectives, these promote student leadership and give you the opportunity touse the knowledge they have to solve the challenges imposed solving the task of centering the same in meaning than inthe form (Willis, 1996; Skehan, 1996, Richards and Rodgers, 2001). The cooperative approach (Johnson and Johnson,1987; Slavin, 1990; Sharan and Sharan, 1992, Walters, 2000) in the search for greater and richer classroom interactiontechniques emphasized cooperative work in which students must work together interdependently and coordinated withother group members, developing the students language skills, social and cognitive skills through interaction andteamwork. It also promotes a positive atmosphere, which is necessary for successful interaction in the classroom. In thiscontext, incorporating the information and communication technologies through the use of websites, email and weblog,supported CALL methodology, specifically CMC, which states that the use of computer mediated communication canfoster development of communication skills.”REFERENCE:QUINTANILLA ESPINOZA, Angie y FERREIRA CABRERA, Anita.

ISSN 0718-0705NOTE: This article helps us find ways or methodologies for students to be participative and dynamic in theclassroom. Since the technology right now is the most used tools by students. And according to the study shownin the graphs, students want to learn in a dynamic way. Sometimes CALL can be very theoretical but studentsshould learn as otherwise lesllame attention to them and they can be active
CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning)“An ideal CALL course are remains not an alternative but a complementary tool in reinforcing classroom activities. Apartfrom relying on the ability of educators to create suitable CALL course ware, the effectiveness of CALL depends on theteacher’s readiness to adopt new attitudes and approaches toward language teaching. The teacher should avoid beingskeptical about the use of computer in language teaching and begin to re-evaluate his methods in the light of computer’stremendous teaching potential and boldly address to the challenges offered. The computer can best assist teachers if it isseen not as a replacement for their work but as a supplement to it. By the way, the computer, will not replace thelanguage teachers, but, used creatively, it will relieve them of tedious tasks and will enable students to receiveindividualized attention from both teachers and machines to a degree that has so far been impossible.Analysis This is the examples of the pictures that I took from Euro Talk Interactive (Learn English). There are essential words and phrases for absolute beginners. It helps for the students so they can learn how to speak English well. Positive : It’s fun for all ages. Negative : Some words can’t be use for kids and Junior High school becausethere are words or conversation that purposed for tourism.
Strength : It’s goodWeakness : Some CD’s cant used for some reasons, like can’t be opened in a few typical of PC.Advantages : Another advantage of CALL is that it gives a new role to teaching materials. Out of the context of CALL,teaching materials are passive.The advantages mentioned up to the present moment make us aware of an important fact in relation to CALL- we have tobe constantly analyzing whether the uses to which CALL is put are just reinforcing current practices or if, in contrast, theyare promoting curriculum renewal. In order to fully benefit from the potential of the computer for language learning,language teaching specialists have to promote a complementary relationship with computers. With the practice of this kindof activities, curriculum renewal is guaranteed, so that there is no doubt that a real and evident progress in teachingmethodologies is taking place.”REFERENCE: http://rikaayuxd.wordpress.com/2010/12/07/call-computer-assisted-language-learning/NOTE: This article shows how to create software for use in CALL. One of the interests is different software usedin the course. This paper shows a software interaction to practice the language.
Human Language Technologies and CALLHuman Language Technologies (HLT) is a relatively new term that embraces a wide range of areas of research anddevelopment in the sphere of what used to be called Language Technologies or Language Engineering. The aim of thismodule is to familiarise the student with key areas of HLT, including a range of Natural Language Processing (NLP)applications. NLP is a general term used to describe the use of computers to process information expressed in natural (i.e.human) languages. The term NLP is used in a number of different contexts in this document and is one of the mostimportant branches of HLT. There is a Special Interest Group in Language Processing, NLP SIG, within the EUROCALLprofessional association, and a Special Interest Group in Intelligent Computer Assisted Language Instruction (ICALL)within the CALICO professional association. Both have similar aims, namely to further research in a number of areas thatare mentioned in this module, such as: Artificial Intelligence (AI) Computational Linguistics Corpus-Driven and Corpus Linguistics Formal Linguistics Machine Aided Translation (MAT) Machine Translation (MT) Natural Language Interfaces Natural Language Processing (NLP) Theoretical Linguistics
All of the above are areas of research that have produced results which have proven, are proving and will prove veryuseful in the field of Computer Assisted Language Learning.Of course, this module cannot teach you everything there is to know about HLT. This is neither necessary nor possible.The two main authors of this module are living proof of that; they both started off as language teachers and then gotinterested in HLT.REFERENCE: http://www.ict4lt.org/en/en_mod3-5.htm#hltNOTE: This article is important because most of the students were interested in this topic. Apparently is softwarewhere you have to apply different materials that we have carried over the race. Maybe thats the interest of all tolearn more about Human Language Technologies and CALL.
