DescriptionContentsAuthors

ICT and Language Learning addresses two questions: What has been the impact of the evolution of ICT on the experience of the language user/learner historically and today? What can we infer from this, and from an analysis of communication in today's world, about how best to use ICT in language learning? Offering a novel perspective, the book explores the interplay of ICT and language learning from the printing press to the mobile phone. It considers how technological advances, through their impact on communication, language education and language learning itself, affect not only how languages are learnt and taught, but also what kind of language is (or should be) learnt and taught. As well as identifying some recurrent themes and concerns, the approach highlights the multifaceted and complex nature of language study and its evolutionary dimension.
