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."

Abstract: This study explores the relationship between affective variables and listening strategies use. The main objective is to investigate the relationship between extroversion/introversion/L/personality variables and the EFL learners' performance on listening strategies. The study was conducted on a group of 101 male and female Iranian EFL learners who participated and answered a Nelson proficiency test. 70 homogeneous subjects responded to Eysenck Personality Questionnaire and based on the result of this questionnaire, the subjects were divided into extroverts and introverts. Listening Strategies Questionnaire was developed to elicit the listening strategies of each group. Finally, to observe whether or not there is any significant difference between the two groups in term of listening strategies use, a case II t-test was carried out. The results show that Extroversion/Introversion personality trait has no significant effect on the EFL learners’ use of listening strategies.
