Thouesny, Sylvie – CALICO Journal, 2010
In a project-based approach to teaching a foreign language at the university level, students are often required to participate in several task-based writing activities. In doing so, language learners not only write incorrect forms, but also correct forms of the same structures, both of which provide useful information on their strengths and…

Schulze, Mathias; Liebscher, Grit – CALICO Journal, 2010
The development of both the materials for an intermediate-level hybrid German writing course and the software in a virtual learning environment for the course may be viewed as activity systems. Viewing the individual components of each system as interrelated enables us to conceptualize the complexities of the development process, which goes well…

Amaral, Luiz A.; Meurers, W. Detmar – CALICO Journal, 2009
Error diagnosis in ICALL typically analyzes learner input in an attempt to abstract and identify indicators of the learner's (mis)conceptions of linguistic properties. For written input, this process usually starts with the identification of tokens that will serve as the atomic building blocks of the analysis. In this paper, we discuss the…

Garrett, Nina – CALICO Journal, 2008
In this article, the author poses what might seem to be a heretical question: Has CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning) already begun to lose its identity as a field of inquiry or of practice? And if the answer is a puzzled "maybe," what is CALICO's role to be in, say, the next 25 years? She notes that because most of the tools that support…

Heift, Trude – CALICO Journal, 2007
In examining the titles of this year's conference presentations, the author noticed quite a few papers that focus on learner-specific issues, for instance, papers that address learning styles, learner needs, personality and learning, learner modeling and, more generally, pedagogical issues that deal with individual learner differences in…

Zhao, Yong – CALICO Journal, 2003
Assessed the potential of technology for improving language education. A review of the effectiveness of past and current practices in the application of information and communication technology (ICT) in language education and the availability as well as capacities of current ICTs was conducted.

Jones, Linda C. – CALICO Journal, 2003
Extends Mayer's (1997, 2001) generative theory of multimedia learning and investigates under what conditions multimedia annotations can support listening comprehension in a second language. Highlights students' views on the effectiveness of multimedia annotations (visual and verbal) in assisting them in their comprehension and acquisition of…

Schulze, Mathias – CALICO Journal, 2003
Discusses selected theoretical aspects of providing error feedback for language learners. Theoretical considerations concerning the dialog with the learner about linguistic errors are discussed, and some conclusions for computer assisted language learning (CALL) system design are drawn.

Cowan, Ron; Choi, Hyun Eun; Kim, Doe Hyung – CALICO Journal, 2003
Poses four important questions relevant to error diagnosis and correction in computer assisted language learning (CALL). These questions relate to the diagnosis of persistent second language (L2) learner grammar errors, whether these can be corrected, what types of feedback from the computer are most efficient for focusing the students' attention…

Reuer, Veit – CALICO Journal, 2003
Describes the error recognition module of an interactive system with a special focus on the underlying grammar theory. Using the system, the learners are invited to produce complete written sentences in small question-answer dialogs with the computer. (Author/VWL)

Heift, Trude – CALICO Journal, 2003
Describes a web-based intelligent computer assisted language learning (ICALL) system for German that provides error-specific feedback suited to learner expertise. Focuses on the Domain Knowledge and Filtering Module. Concludes with a study that supports the need for a CALL system that addresses multiple errors by considering language teaching…

Tschichold, Cornelia – CALICO Journal, 2003
To overcome obstacles in error detection needed for intelligent feedback in computer assisted language learning (CALL), calls for a new focus on lexical items, both single words and multiword units of various types. Suggests single and multiword lexemes should not only be explicitly taught in CALL but could also provide the key to more effective…
