Academic Podcasting and Mobile Assisted Language Learning: Applications and Outcomes ~ Call for Chapters

Proposal Sumission Deadline Extended to September 21, 2009

The objective of the publication is to share innovative and pedagogically effective ways to improve foreign language education by identifying the instructional uses and benefits of academic podcasting technology and MALL in foreign language acquisition. These include instructional uses, students’ perceived learning gains, how instructors can use/have used the technology (successes and challenges), study abroad experiences with the technology, pedagogical impact, and economic perspectives on its use.

The publication will provide a comprehensive body of literature that addresses the fact that iPods and iTunes are not a passing phase, but rather are enhancing the way in which foreign language students are acquiring language proficiency. The new generation of iPods and MP3 players is improving, providing instructors and students with ever more capabilities.

This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference”, and “IGI Publishing” imprints. For additional information regarding the publisher, please visit This publication is anticipated to be released in 2010.
