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: Identity, Motivation and Autonomy in Language Learning
Edited By: Garold Murray
Xuesong Andy Gao
Terry Lamb
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693723
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

In this volume researchers from Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North and
South America employ a variety of theoretical perspectives and methodological
approaches in their exploration of the links between identity, motivation, and
autonomy in language learning. On a conceptual level the authors explore
issues related to agency, metacognition, imagination, beliefs, and self. The
book also addresses practice in classroom, self-access, and distance education
contexts, considering topics such as teachers’ views on motivation, plurilingual
learning, sustaining motivation in distance education, pop culture and gaming,
study abroad, and the role of agency and identity in the motivation of pre-service
teachers. The book concludes with a discussion of how an approach which sees
identity, motivation, and autonomy as interrelated constructs has the potential to
inform theory, practice and future research directions in the field of language
teaching and learning.
