Brave New Digital Classroom deftly interweaves results of pedagogical research and descriptions of the most successful computer-assisted language learning (CALL) projects to explore how technology can best be employed in the foreign-language curriculum to assist the second language acquisition process.

Directed to all language teachers―whether at the school or the postsecondary level, with or without prior experience―this book focuses on how to use new technologies effectively. Blake urges teachers to move beyond a simple functional competence of knowing how to use the tools toward first a critical competence―realizing what the various tools are good for―and ultimately a rhetorical competence of knowing how the tools will help transform the learning environment. This book examines the effective use of a range of technologies, from Internet sites through computer-mediated communication such as synchronous chatting and blogs, to distance learning. At the end of each chapter questions and activities demonstrate the interactionist, learner-centered pedagogy Blake espouses.

An invaluable reference for experienced researchers and CALL developers as well as those of limited experience, Brave New Digital Classroom is also ideal for graduate-level courses on second language pedagogy. It will also be of interest to department chairs and administrators seeking to develop and evaluate their own CALL programs.

Review:

"Brave New Digital Classroom serves many purposes and can be used within multiple levels of instruction, making it one of the best buys on the market ... [An] indispensable tool within the CALL environment and will prove to be an essential resource for present and future FL educators."―Modern Language Journal

"This is an easy introduction to sound practice in application of computer technology in language instruction."―eLanguage.net

"This small but highly resourceful book is the first of its kind to offer a comprehensive summary of technologies developed to assist language learning, with an emphasis on foreign language classrooms."―Issues in Applied Linguistics

"A concise, well-written, and accessible book that will appeal to language teachers, educators, and researchers who are interested in learning more about CALL research and best practices in the FL classroom. The organization and presentation of the content and the breadth of the discussion in this book reflect Blake's insightful and thorough concerns about the different aspects of technology-enhanced FL curricula."―Language Learning & Technology

"A seminal piece that is essential, at least in parts, for anyone involved in FL education."―Adrienne Gonzales, PhD, Foreign Language Pedagogy & Technology Specialist at University of Denver, CO, FLTMAG - Foreign Language Technology Magazine
