New Technology in Language Learning

Proceedings of the 1989 Man and the Media Symposium

Graham Davies and Michael Hussey

Language learning technology has made rapid advances in the last ten years and now embraces not only traditional technological aids, such as the audiocassette recorder and overhead projector, but also interactive videodiscs and computer networks. This collection of papers, most of which were presented at the 1989 Man and the Media Symposium at the Goethe-Institute, London, is a representative cross-section of current trends in language learning technology. It includes papers on computer assisted language learning, the use of video material and television subtitling, computerized dictionaries and takes a new look at the language laboratory.
Contents: Use of video material - Television subtitling as an aid to language learning - Computer assisted language learning - Use of word-processors and computerized dictionaries - Interactive videodiscs - Artificial intelligence - Survey of current trends.
