Over the last few years, second generation Internet-based services, or Web 2.0 technologies, have emerged as the new buzzwords in information communication technologies. The Handbook of Research on Web 2.0 and Second Language Learning investigates how those involved in education — teachers, students, and administrators — can respond to the opportunities offered by Web 2.0 technology, within existing institutional and pedagogical frameworks. Containing nearly 30 chapters by experts from across the globe, this defining body of research is the first of its kind to focus on second language learning in relation to the history of computer assisted language learning.
