Balaman, Ufuk; Sert, Olcay – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Technology-mediated task environments have long been considered integral parts of L2 learning and teaching processes. However, the interactional resources that the learners deploy to complete tasks in these environments have remained largely unexplored due to an overall focus on task design and outcomes rather than task engagement processes. With…

Alghasab, Maha; Handley, Zöe – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2017
Wikis are "convergent media" which allow authors to work and make meaning across, as well as within, the two modes of interaction. In order to obtain a true picture of the nature of student-student (non-) collaboration in wiki mediated writing activities, this paper therefore argues that it is necessary to examine students' discussion…
