Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Language Centres. Their roles, functions and management
Written By: David E. Ingram
Series Title: Language International World Directory 5
Description:

Language centres serve an important role in the development and implementation of language policy and in supporting language teachers. This book describes five language centres, the Centre for
Information on Language Teaching and Research (London), the European
Centre for Modern Languages (Graz), the Regional Language Centre (Singapore), the National Foreign Language Center (NFLC, Washington
DC), and the Centre for Applied Linguistics and Languages (CALL,
Brisbane). These contrasting centres provide the basis for a discussion of the roles, functions and management of language centres and the challenges facing such centres (and universities in general) arising from tensions between the pursuit of academic excellence and the demands of commercialisation and economic rationalism. The author holds a chair in applied linguistics in Griffith University and has written extensively on language policy and its implementation and on language assessment. He has established and directed three language centres since the mid-1980s, including CALL since 1990, and is an
Adjunct Fellow of NFLC.
