MetadataShow full item record
With this research the effect of new media on the motivation of learners in a CLIL classroom environment was studied. A lesson series incorporating new media elements was developed and executed. Before and after the execution of the lesson series, quantitative data was collected by means of a questionnaire. Qualitative data was obtained by interviewing seven learners after the lesson series. Motivation was increased after execution of the lesson series. The increase in motivation is the result of a combination of cooperative learning elements and increased autonomy associated with new media use. With the results from this research it was not possible to isolate the direct effects of new media on motivation.
