Departmental Bulletin Paper Developing a Second Language Ego with the Aid of Audio/Visual Recording Technology in the ESL Classroom : An Exploratory Study

ファロン, トーマス J.  ,  ベイカー マシュー

  This research explores the use of audio/visual recording devices in conjunction with prepared lesson themes and questions in an effort to both cultivate a second language ego and foster intrinsic learning in English as a second language (ESL) learners. In addition to a review of literature, a practical experiment was conducted over the course of a 15-week term at a Japanese university. At the end of the experiment, ESL learners who participated were surveyed regarding their perception of the efficacy of this learning method. The survey results proved positive regarding both the teaching method and its ability to foster intrinsic learning. Although, these initial findings are quite promising, further research will be undertaken to produce more conclusive results.
