I am currently involved in a two-year research project funded by TUBİTAK (The scientific and technological council of Turkey) as principle investigator. The main goal of the project is to improve higher education learners’ second language learning skills through tablet PCs. In this project we are investigating the effect of reading on the tablet screen as a learning support on the acquisition of second language listening comprehension skills. In addition, we have the opportunity to evaluate effect of reading on the tablet screen as learning support on B2- level higher education second language learners’ higher order listening comprehension skills such as analysis and inference. In this study we have been studying reading on the tablet screen as independent variable.
