  1. Exploring Silences in the Field of Computer Assisted Language Learning

    e-learning and education, Iss. 15

    Anwar Ahmed advocates for critical thinking and thoughtful technology integration in world language classrooms in his (2022) book, Exploring silences in the field of computer assisted language learning. Ahmed argues that CALL research too often focuses on the benefits of technology integration in language classrooms and ignores potential dangers. Given this tendency, Ahmed offers a framework for examining the silences that surround language learning technology. From social-emotional considerations to an examination of the risks of social media, Ahmed’s work appeals to CALL researchers and teacher educators alike and strives to amplify the silences in language learning technology research by providing a strong foundation for future CALL research.
