As a strong believer in and practitioner of using technology in language teaching, I thought it would be useful to bring together a list of resources providing research on its effectiveness.
I hope readers will make additional suggestions.
Here are my choices for The Best Places To Find Research On Technology & Language Teaching/Learning:
The European Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning has lots of resources.
The ICT4LT Project also has a number of good materials.
Foreign Language Teaching Methods- Technology comes from the University of Texas.
We’ve also done quite a bit of research here in Sacramento. Here are some reports from that work:
Rosetta Stone Is No Replacement for In-Class Learning, Study Finds is from The Chronicle Of Higher Education.
Innovations in learning technologies for English language teaching is a great downloadable report from The British Council.
Innovations in Learning Technologies for English Language Teaching is a downloadable book from The British Council.
US middle-school English language learners using Rosetta Stone Foundations—software that simulates a target-language-only immersion environment—made greater progress in speaking and listening (but not reading and writing) than those not using the software:https://t.co/tGWPBdXoW2 pic.twitter.com/dHoCNLMNqH
