Chapter 6. TBLT and synthetic immersive environments: What can in-game task restarts tell us about design and implementation?. Technology-mediated TBLT: Researching Technology and Tasks, González-Lloret, Marta and Lourdes Ortega (eds.), pp. 149–1822014.
While previous work has identified a strong connection between tasks and digital games, very little empirical evidence exists to aid in our understanding of how tasks within these complex digital spaces should be designed, implemented, and evaluated so as to optimally support language learning.… read more | Article
Strategy-based learning of pragmatics for intercultural education. Linguistics for Intercultural Education, Dervin, Fred and Anthony J. Liddicoat (eds.), pp. 87–1112013.
This chapter deals with an area that has come into its own in research on second language (L2) learning, namely, that of language learner strategies, and, in this specific case, the application of strategies to the learning and performance of L2 pragmatics. Consistent with the theme of this… read more | Article
Chapter 7. Complex L2 pragmatic feedback via place-based mobile games. Technology in Interlanguage Pragmatics Research and Teaching, Taguchi, Naoko and Julie M. Sykes (eds.), pp. 155–1832013.
Digital gaming environments offer a solution to many of the challenges of giving L2 pragmatic feedback by offering scaffolded, just-in-time, meaningful, and individualized feedback (e.g., Sykes, 2009; Sykes, Reinhardt, & Thorne, 2010). The limited work in this area specifically examines different… read more | Article
Chapter 4. Multiuser virtual environments: Learner apologies in Spanish. Technology in Interlanguage Pragmatics Research and Teaching, Taguchi, Naoko and Julie M. Sykes (eds.), pp. 71–1002013.
Recent work in the area of computer assisted language learning has identified multiuser virtual environments (MUVEs) as a beneficial context for second language (L2) pragmatic development. Their potential to mediate individualized learning experiences with just-in-time, personalized feedback is a… read more | Article
Prologue. The future of pragmatics and technology: Where are we headed?. Technology in Interlanguage Pragmatics Research and Teaching, Taguchi, Naoko and Julie M. Sykes (eds.), pp. 271–2742013.
Chapter 1. Introduction: Technology in interlanguage pragmatics research and teaching. Technology in Interlanguage Pragmatics Research and Teaching, Taguchi, Naoko and Julie M. Sykes (eds.), pp. 1–152013.
Chapter 2. Teachers gaining awareness of L2 pragmatics by means of an asynchronous professional development module. L2 Pragmatics in Action: Teachers, learners and the teaching-learning interaction process, Martínez-Flor, Alicia, Ariadna Sánchez-Hernández and Júlia Barón (eds.), pp. 31–612023.
While teacher education is a crucial element to ensuring that second language (L2) pragmatics gains traction in classrooms and curricula, it would appear that teacher development programs provide only modest focus in this area. This chapter reports on findings from a preliminary case study in… read more | Chapter
