Sinan Gürleyik, Elif Akdemir


Developing curriculum to enhance student learning is the primer purpose of all curricular activities. Availability of recent tools supporting to teach various skills including reading, listening, speaking and writing has opened a new avenue for curricular activities in technology-enhanced learning environments. Understanding the perceptions of students utilizing technology-enhanced learning environments to learn second language skills is important to develop the curriculum. This study is organized to investigate the perceptions of students towards second language learning in technology-enhanced learning environments in which students can develop reading, listening, speaking and writing skills for the second language learning. The survey was used to collect data from 875 undergraduate students involved in technology-enhanced second language learning environments in a university. Contrary to general expectations, results of the study indicated that technology-enhanced learning environments do not positively influence the perceptions of undergraduate students for the second language learning. Further research should concentrate on investigating the reasons behind these findings using qualitative studies.
