My abstract for the research presentation: “iPads and EFL Classroom: Quest for innovation” http://internationaljournal.org/rome.html

The belief in the equivalence of human thinking and learning vs. technological functioning was closely linked to epistemological notions of ‘knowledge’ as a group of elements that, alike ‘if-then’ rules, could be mechanically processed through signs, symbols and production mechanisms. It can be foreseen that upcoming modern theories of learning will similarly tend to meet the challenges and demands of the knowledge society and look at learning as a coding and retrieving practice about conceptual notions and artifacts.This research presentation aims at exploring the results of using technology educationally by looking into learner practices and perceptions about using iPads in language learning, as well as looking into students’ language achievement the paperless classroom could bring.
