Along with the posttest, students will also be given an online asynchronous

interview where they will share their experiences and perceptions about the use of Web

2.0 technology in language learning. These interviews will be closely analyzed through

hand coding. In vivo codes and themes will be built from student responses. Students

will also be asked to complete an online classroom community survey to measure the

level of classroom community in their online language class.

During this experience, students will reflect on their use of Web 2.0 technologies,

their achievement in the language and the level of classroom community. The study will

measure student achievement before and after using Web 2.0 technologies.

Research Questions and Instrumentation

The purpose of this triangulation mixed methods study is to investigate student

use and determine the impact of Web 2.0 technology of Spanish college students at a

Midwestern community college. By using both qualitative and quantitative data this will

help the researcher to better understand the use and effect of Web 2.0 technologies

(Creswell, 2005).

Mixed Methods Questions.

1. How do Web 2.0 technologies affect language achievement of community college

students?

2. To what extent do the quantitative and qualitative data converge? How and why?
