Presentation abstract 発表内容
Computer Mediated Communication (CMC) is becoming a popular tool in EFL classes around the world. The type of CMC used depends on the learning situation. This poster session will outline two language exchange programs where students from various countries used Moodle to study language in 'cooperative and collaborative' language exchange settings. “Cooperative”, here, means students in each of the countries participating in the exchange are learning the language of the other partner. In this type, American students studying Japanese were linked with Japanese students studying English on a Moodle course that employed forums, wikis, chats and messages to promote language and cultural exchange. In another type, “Collaborative” interchange means all students are EFL students and are learning English as a common language. In this type, students from Viet Nam and Japan worked together to learn English. Pluses and minuses in both forms of exchange and examples of each form of CMC will be detailed in this electronic poster session. Description of the pedagogical basis for the courses, explanation of how they were created and maintained, and outcomes achieved by the students will be outlined. Some initial findings will be presented comparing output and outcomes from students according to CMC type.
