Developing a Conceptual Model: Integrating CALL with TBLT

Abstract

Over the last 20 years, task-based language learning (TBLT) has gained immense recognition from linguists all over the world. With the seamless assimilation of technology in the lives of educators and learners, a strong and growing body of literature has supported the efficacy of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) over the last decade. Recent research has proved the positive aspects of technology-mediated classrooms. As the two methodologies have matured and excelled in language classrooms, this research seeks to explore the interconnectedness of the two approaches and the intersection of technology to facilitate learning. The study investigates the affordances that technology-mediated task-based instruction brings to language learning. Furthermore, in light of the data gathered, the study is framed around grounded theory using coding and reflexive comparison to bring forth a modifiable conceptual model that consolidates the centralities of both TBLT and CALL models while keeping students at the centre of the paradigm.
