Computers in English language Teaching : A Comparison Between Theory and Reality (English)
Abstract [en]

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to compare existing theories and policies on CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) with the actual situation among practising teachers of ESL (English as a Second Language) of secondary schools in Sweden. The evaluation focuses on the differences between theories and reality, and discusses why, if any, the differences exist. Some background information on second language acquisition is provided, and recent theories and standpoints within the field of CALL are mentioned to highlight the differences between theory and reality. The evaluation was made by handing out a survey to 33 teachers of ESL, asking questions about their use of computers in their everyday teaching. The survey shows that the gap between the theories and standpoints within the field of CALL, and the reality of teachers in schools often is huge. The survey shows that the main reasons for this are either a lack of functioning computers, or the lack of time for teachers to educate themselves in the field of CALL.

Sammanfattning

Den här undersökningen gjordes för att i stort kartlägga om datorer används på ett reflekterat och genomtänkt sätt i undervisning i engelska. Jag genomförde min undersökning genom att dela ut en enkät bland lärare som undervisade i engelska i Lidköpingsområdet, år 7-9. Av de svar som lämnades in skulle man kunna dra slutsatsen att datorn används oreflekterat och inte speciellt ofta i språkundervisningen, och detta på grund av ej fungerande teknik, brist på kunskap eller brist på eget intresse och tid. Vidare kan man se att datorn i huvudsak används som en ordbehandlare eller som ett verktyg för informationssökning, och varför det är så diskuteras längre fram i mitt arbete. Mina förslag på alternativ, och mer utförliga beskrivningar av mina slutsatser finns i min diskussion.
