HISTORY:

A major initiative of the NFLRC during the past grant cycle was the establishment of a new refereed journal, published electronically on the World Wide Web. Language Learning & Technology was officially launched at the ACTFL meeting in Philadelphia in November, 1996. The journal is jointly sponsored by the Hawai‘i NFLRC (with editorial responsibility) and our sister NFLRC, the Center for Language Education And Research (CLEAR) at Michigan State University (with production responsibility). Additional co-sponsors include the University of Minnesota LRC (CARLA, with responsibility for the review section), the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO), the International Association of Learning Laboratories (IALL), the European Association for Computer Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL), and the Australian Technology Enhanced Language Learning Consortium (ATELL). Editorial Board members include representatives from six LRCs and many leading universities.
