implications for the researcher and for future students as regards their language learning
The purpose of this triangulation mixed methods study was to learn about the
impact of Web 2.0 on the language learning of community college students. The
researcher converged quantitative data gathered through the pre and posttests, the
Classroom Community Survey and the qualitative data gathered through asynchronous
online interview. This data will help the researcher provide a comprehensive analysis of
the research problem (Punch, 1998).
The results of this study may be used to (a) create effective online and face-to-
face language courses using Web 2.0 technologies, as well as influence the pedagogical
decisions of all educators in the use of Web 2.0 technologies; and to (b) improve the
effectiveness of Web 2.0 technologies in the classroom. The results of this study may
provide justification for the use of Web 2.0 technologies in the classroom.
