Abstract

This case study aims to investigate how students in a first year Japanese language course at California State University, Sacramento perceived the overall impact of technology to be on their learning. The main focus was on how a technology-enhanced course helped students be receptive to independent learning; attain Japanese language proficiency and cultural knowledge; promote collaborative learning and motivation; and improve academic performance. The technology included use of a course management system (WebCT), an interactive multimedia language learning system (Diva©e Duo), and a high tech classroom ("Smart Classroom"). The collected data has been analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. This study is significant because it will help foreign language instructors become aware of ways to incorporate technology into daily teaching.
