Call For Papers

The Journal of Teaching English with Technology (TEwT) is seeking contributions for its special issue on TECHNOLOGY-MEDIATED TASK-BASED ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING, edited by Anna Franca Plastina, University of Calabria, Italy, to appear in April 2015.

The potential synergy between task-based language learning (TBLL) and the use of technology presents a number of challenges for current English teachers. Nevertheless, “anyone concerned with second language teaching and learning in the 21st century needs to grasp the nature of the unique technology-mediated tasks learners can engage in for language acquisition” (Chapelle, 2001:2).

Abstract proposals of 300-350 words are invited from language practitioners and researchers from all fields related to technology-mediated task-based English language learning. Papers in the form of research reports, case studies, research in progress, or theoretical papers are welcomed. Contributions may focus on the issue in a number of ways, including but not limited to:

• Challenges and opportunities of technology-mediated task-based English language learning
• Innovations in language learning through collaborative digital tasks
• Language learner and teacher roles in technology-enhanced task-based instruction
• Learner behaviour and attitudes towards technology-mediated task-based language
instruction
• Learner Empowerment in technological-mediated task-based language learning
• Learning/cognitive styles in digital task-based language learning
• Multimodality in task-based language instruction
• Pedagogical evaluation of web-based tools and mobile devices for language learning
tasks
• Pedagogical uses of authentic digital tools/materials for task-based learning
• Productive and participatory learning processes in Pedagogy 2.0 tasks
• Social Media and possible task-based applications in language learning (e.g. Twitter,
Facebook, Blogs, Wikis, Forums)
• Teacher Development for technology-mediated task-based instruction
• Technological software applications in ESL/EFL/ESP tasks
• Technological task design for ESL/EFL/ESP courseware and syllabi through the use, for
example, of social-constructivist, connectivist, personalized learning approaches
• Technological-mediated task-based language instruction for professional training and
practice
• Technological-mediated task-based language learning in digital environments (e.g.
MOOCs, Learning Management Systems, Moodle, Poodle, use of Webquests)
• The effectiveness/drawbacks of task-based learner e-portfolios
• The impact of digital language learning policies on task-based instruction

Abstract proposals should specify the name(s) and affiliation of the contributor(s) and be sent to: kamila.burz@wp.pl and CC jarek.krajka@wp.pl; annafranca.plastina@unical.it
no later than 15 November 2014 with the email subject line “TEWT special issue submission”.

The deadline for submitting a completed paper of around 3,000 words of the text proper, without abstract, references, notes and appendices is 1 February 2015. All papers will be double-blind refereed and are expected to have not been previously submitted to other journals.

TEwT is currently indexed in Scopus, Index Copernicus, Central and Eastern European Online Library, EBSCO, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), BazHum, CEJSH and Cabell's Publishing Directory.
