He holds qualifications in music, education, languages and linguistics, and his research interests cover Italian linguistics, computer assisted language learning

For Warschauer (1996), and Warschauer and Healey (1998), there are three key moments in the history of Computer Assisted Language Learning
: (1) Behaviouristic CALL (1960s-1970s); (2) Communicative CALL (1970s-1980s), and (3) Integrative CALL (1980s-1990s).
As CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning
) research literature suggests, it is necessary to conduct a thorough pedagogical analysis of the Web and its CALL resources if we are to take full advantage of its many possibilities.
The purpose of this paper is to present a theoretical discussion of how Computer Assisted Language Learning
(CALL) practices need to be informed and supported by Second Language Acquisition (SLA) theories.
In the year 1997, The Computer Assisted Language Learning
Journal devoted a special issue, "The virtual learning environment," reviewed by Crosby (1997) for CALL environment and effect on learning and teaching.

Introduction to Computer Assisted Language Learning
Leaders in the field of Computer Assisted Language Learning
(CALL) have been calling for less experimental research into differences, comparing when a given technology is or is not used, and more research to determine affordances that a given technology can provide toward achieving outcome goals (Colpaert, 2012).
While it is clear that much theoretical thinking has gone on in the area of computer assisted language learning
, some continue to argue that the exploitation of information technologies in language education is proceeding without a strong theoretical underpinning (Cobb, 2005, p.
ISLAMABAD, December 20, 2011 (Frontier Star): Series of workshops on Computer Assisted Language Learning
(CALL), organized by English Language Teaching Reforms (ELTR) project of the Higher Education Commission, in collaboration with the British Council, concluded in Karachi.
