Abstract

Digital information and communication technologies are providing language learners and teachers with new opportunities, but they also are disrupting more traditional ways of learning. While many of the new online tools have the potential to foster communication and collaboration - crucial elements in successful language learning - the different materiality of the online medium is not only changing the nature of how we learn but it also has repercussions for language learners' identity. This article explores how notions of space, time and the body are differently conceptualized when language learning takes place online and at a distance, and how this has been changing our perception of what constitutes a language learner.
