Abstract

K-12 English as a Second Language K-12 environments are severely under-represented in Web 2.0 and second language acquisition research. This study was designed using qualitative methodology to explore the integration of vodcasts as student-generated products in a middle school ESL Reading classroom located in the southwestern United States. Data was collected through observations, student artifacts, semi-structured interviews and reflexive researcher journaling so as to inform the research questions. Sixteen participants were observed while completing a project based learning instructional unit. Collaboration contributed to student linguistic development by promoting negotiation of meaning, enriched when students rotated roles and responsibilities.
