Using action research to explore technology in language teaching: international perspectives
This study provides an investigation of the processes and practices involved in conducting action research on the use of ICT and new technologies in the classroom as experienced by 12 teachers located across different international contexts, from Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
It reports on how the project was implemented by means of virtual collaborative workshops, the responses of the teachers to conducting their action research over a period of nine months, and what lessons were learned about initiating an international virtual action research process. It also provides accounts written by the teachers of their research into teaching practices incorporating the use of new technology that are potentially of value to other teachers, both within the specific local contexts concerned, but also more generally.
