Technology-Mediated Tblt In A Hybrid Environment: Bridging Content And Language Production, Cristina Pardo-Ballester Jan 2019

Technology-Mediated Tblt In A Hybrid Environment: Bridging Content And Language Production, Cristina Pardo-Ballester

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This article examines the use of technology-mediated, task-based language teaching (TBLT) in a hybrid environment as an instructional approach in an intermediate-level Spanish course. It (a) evaluates elements of a hybrid course that was developed with computer-assisted language learning (CALL) materials to help learners improve their Spanish, focusing on two areas of specialization––engineering and business; (b) examines the effectiveness of the course materials and curriculum with a focus on CALL readings; (c) demonstrates that the technology-mediated TBLT approach in the hybrid learning environment was successful in linking content and language; and (d) establishes that the learners’ speaking skills had ...


Asr As A Tool For Providing Feedback For Vowel Pronunciation Practice, Agata Guskaroska Jan 2019

Asr As A Tool For Providing Feedback For Vowel Pronunciation Practice, Agata Guskaroska

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of the study is to examine the usefulness of mobile-assisted ASR dictation systems (Gboard, Siri or voice dictation on smartphones) for vowel pronunciation practice by looking at three aspects of its usefulness: pronunciation improvement by using ASR, accuracy of recognition, and the learners’ attitudes towards using this system. A list of 30 words containing minimal pairs of the contrasts /i/, /ɪ/; /æ/, /ɛ/; /u/, /ʊ/; /ɑ/, /ʌ/ and some distractors was given to 21 Macedonian EFL learners, divided into two groups, an experimental (n=11) and a control group (n=10). A mixed methods approach was used in ...


Developing And Evaluating Corpus-Based Feedback, Mo Chen Jan 2019

Developing And Evaluating Corpus-Based Feedback, Mo Chen

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation outlines the development of a system of corpus-based feedback and evaluates its effects on students’ error correction and language learning. The design of the corpus-based feedback used in the study was informed by two SLA theories: the Interactionist Approach and Skill-learning Theory. The dissertation theorizes all aspects of the feedback design and discusses the various features of corpus-based feedback from SLA theoretical perspectives. To evaluate the quality of corpus-based feedback, the study compared it to that of traditional coded feedback. Based on the logical framework for evaluating CALL corrective feedback and Chapelle’s evaluation criteria (2001), five research ...


Revisiting Multiplication Area Models For Whole Numbers, Oh-Hoon Kwon, Ji-Won Son, Ji Yeong I Jan 2019

Revisiting Multiplication Area Models For Whole Numbers, Oh-Hoon Kwon, Ji-Won Son, Ji Yeong I

Education Publications

We argue that there are two conceptually different area models for whole number multiplication: area-to-area model and lengths-to-area model depending on how multiplication operation is conceived: action on / change of an initial quantity, or operation / coordination of two quantities. These models complement each other to promote students’ conceptual understanding of whole number multiplication and help students extend their understanding of whole number multiplication to fraction multiplication.
