Autonomy And Foreign Language Learning In A Virtual Learning Environment

RRP $383.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Digitalised

learning with its promise of autonomy, enhanced learner choice,

independence and freedom, is an intuitive and appealing construct but

closer examination reveals it to be a rather simplistic proposition,

raising the following questions.


-What do we mean by autonomy?


-What are we implying about the role of the teacher, the classroom, and interaction between learners?


-What do we understand about the impact of technology on the ecology of the learning environment?


This

book describes the use of a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) by a

group of advanced English language learners in Mexico, comparing what

students thought

and what they did

in response to the technology. The theoretical aim of the book is to

work towards the construction of a theory of the development of

autonomy and virtual learning in an EFL context. Enhanced

understanding about the relationship between autonomy and technology

has the potential to inform academics, software designers, materials

writers, teacher educators, and teachers and to help learners in

their quest to acquire a foreign language.
