Student Projects in the CALL classroom

Principles illustrated:

  • integration of technology in the ESL classroom through project/ task-based learning
  • students constructing knowledge through interaction and collaboration on tasks/projects
  • the CALL teacher as facilitator
  • collaboration that fosters negotiation of meaning
  • students taking responsibility for their learning (learner autonomy)
  • opportunities for scaffolded skill-based learning that promotes communicative competence
