"Using Technology in the Classroom was written to help classroom teachers, laypersons, and school personnel understand the role of computers in education.

The last two chapters deal with timeley issues [ethical and equity issues, and newly emerging technology] facing the educational field as technology brings us into the new century. . . .

We hope you'll find ways to make your computer part of your teaching and your students' learning in meaningful and authentic ways. The possibilities technology presents are endless and can only create continued excitement for the process of learning." (Preface)

Boswood, Tim (ed). New Ways of Using Computers in Language Teaching. Alexandria, VA: TESOL, 1997.

"It is a truism in the language teaching field that people learn a language by using it. People learn to communicate by communicating, and this collection reflects how teachers are currently exploiting the potential of new channels of communication to help others develop their language and communication skills.

[T]he purpose of this volume is ti illustrate the full potential of the new media in our field. I have adopted four strategies. . .:

Egbert, Joy, and Elizabeth Hanson-Smith, (eds). CALL Environments: Research Practice, and Critical Issues. Alexandria, VA: TESOL, 1999.

"Few [CALL] texts have presented a specific framework based on second language acquisition (SLA) research. This volume fills that need.

Egbert and Hanson-Smith conceive of technology as support for a total environment for learning rather than as a tool or a source of information. Their premise is that technolgy can change what teachers teach as well as how. It can also change whom they teach, as technology reaches out to the most distant learners in the most isolated places and offers a great richness of experience.

"This volume . . . presents case studies from Europe, North America and the Middle East in which teachers have adapted and pioneered teaching innovations that range from simple additions to traditional classroom teaching to radical alternatives that change the nature of language learning and teaching. . . .

Most of these chapters report that changes wrought by technology far exceeded the designers' original intentions, often leading to new ways of teaching and learning, enhanced cooperation among teachers, the creation of more satisfying working conditions for instructors, and more self-sufficiency for students. . . .

In these technology-enhanced learning environments, learning centers, classrooms, and labs become spaces in which students and their teachers explore, create, and communicate as they learn language." (Back cover)
