COMPUTER MEDIATED LEARNING IN THE BEGINNER LEVEL CLASSROOM

F. Sadigh Mostowfi, M. Razavi

Georgetown University (UNITED STATES)
Computer mediated learning tools are increasingly used in today's language learning classroom. Our session will present findings from six semesters of trials in the beginner level Persian language lab classroom in Georgetown and George Washington Universities. One often hears that such technology can be easily manipulated to teach intermediate and advanced language learners. However, our applied findings showed that in-class computer mediated language learning tools are ideal for the basic learner. (The higher the level, the more independently students can utilize CM technology.) The presentation will identify ideal CM tools (from word-processors to Web 2.0 platforms) for language learning at the basic level. We will present a few specific activities which have yielded results in our classes. We will also demonstrate the utility of CM tools for specific languages such as Persian, which involve a different script.
