Abstract:

This edited collection considers the relationship between task-based
language teaching (TBLT) and technology-enhanced learning.  TBLT is
concerned with a number of macro-tasks such as  information gathering and
problem-solving as well as evaluative tasks, all of which are increasingly
available via online and Web-based technologies.  Technology Enhanced
Learning  refers to a broad conception of technology use in the language
classroom and incorporates a range of interactive learning technologies
such as Interactive Whiteboards
and mobile learning  devices.

The popularity of Web 2.0 technologies (blogs, wikis, social networking
sites, podcasting, virtual worlds), as well as practical applications of
mobile learning, place a fresh emphasis on creating project-orientated
language learning tasks with a clear real-world significance for learners
of foreign languages.  This book examines the widespread interest in these
new technology-enhanced learning environments and looks at how they are
being used to promote task-based learning. This book will appeal to
practitioners and researchers in applied linguistics, second language
acquisition and education studies.

"Though task-based and technology-mediated language instruction are a
natural match, no  works before this edited collected have explained the
relationship so clearly. Highly  recommended for researchers and
practitioners alike who are interested in how authentic 
interaction via digital media can improve second language learning." 
Professor Mark Warschauer, Department of Education, University of
California, Irvine, USA
