EXPLORING TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION IN ARABIC EDUCATION

Abstract


This review examines technology integration in Arabic language education research within a variety of contexts—such as traditional in-person classes, face-to-face classes, hybrid courses (synchronous and asynchronous engagements), and finally, fully online CALL environments.  Specific characteristics from theoretical frameworks of CALL, second language acquisition, and education are explored within the context of the Arabic classroom that uses technology. It is shown that in the research, six themes emerge in the teaching and learning of Arabic and there is a need for more studies to emphasize the importance of technology integration within course development to benefit both instructors and learners of Arabic. This synthesis of current research will be helpful to Arabic educators and researchers in determining best collaborative and comprehensive strategies for designing effective Arabic language learning environments to propel the field into the future.
