#1. Learning to stay employable
Dominik E. Froehlich, Simon Beausaert, Mien Segers, Maike Gerken
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the effects of chronological age and formal and informal learning activities on employability. Furthermore, indirect effects of age on employability via learning activities were tested. Design/methodology/approach – The authors conducted quantitative, cross-sectional survey research (n¼780) in three Dutch and Austrian organizations to study the relationship between chronological age, formal and informal learning activities, and employability using structural equation modeling. Findings – The authors find that both formal and informal learning increase employees’ employability. However, each type of learning contributes to different components of employability. Additionally, the authors find indirect effects of chronological age on employability via formal learning. Research limitations/implications – The results question the focus on chronological age in organizational and political decision making and contribute new insights for the management of an increasingly older...

#3. The Effects of the Multimedia ‘English Discoveries’ Program on the Learning of Five Different Language Skills with High School Students
Jorge E. Benavides B.
This study determines the effects of the application of multimedia technology -Computer-Assisted language learning (CALL) in the development of five language skills using ‘English Discoveries’. It shows that the effects of multimedia materials for language learning are not necessarily better as a whole, but different from those obtained in traditional classroom work. Only two of the five variables showed significant differences in favor of the use of Multimedia: pronunciation and oral production. However, grammar showed opposite results. The teachers’ and students’ reactions suggest the need to adapt their roles to the new context in the future use of CALL and multimedia. The high level of acceptance of this type of materials by the students shows the need for more research and better adaptation of activities to the new context.

#4. CALL within the Language Learning Methodology
Jorge E. Benavides B.
This article presents the initial steps and theoretical considerations for Computer-assisted Language Learning within the realm of language learning methodology. Based on the expectations created by the rapid changes caused by the Information Revolution many language teachers and researchers have considered the potential of CALL as a sound methodological framework in language teaching and learning. The familiarization and use de computers in language learning settings have led many language educators to envisage a methodological framework for CALL

#5. Integrating CALL into the Language Curriculum
Jorge E. Benavides B.
This initial proposal aims at suggesting one way in which Information Technology in the form of CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning) could be integrated into the foreign language curriculum of the licenciatura programs in Colombia. This task can be carried out as the project within the different universities in order to support and improve the learning and teaching of English which is one of its main objectives.

#6. The Educational Context of Computer-assisted Language Learning (CALL)
Jorge E. Benavides B.
This article deals with the spread of computer applications in education in general and in Higher Education, in particular, making up the new context of Information and Communication Technology and the need for teacher training. Today, only a comparatively small proportion of teachers and schools are using the technology in an extended way. However, it is still very early to show significant or dramatic changes since the current situation cannot be taken as anything other than an initial stage. However, the impact on individual schools and individual practitioners, where the innovation has been made available, is said to be significant.

#7. CALL, Self-access, and Autonomous Learning
Jorge E. Benavides B.
The idea of autonomous learning through a process of self-access learning is a very powerful one since CALL (Computer-Assisted Language Learning) can provide environments which could cope with a large variety of learning possibilities and learning styles. The autonomous computer user is free to choose his own course, topics, and work at his own pace. However, in this approach, high motivation may not necessarily mean learning efficiently. The student may not be very good at selecting his own learning strategy, especially at initial stages. This problem could be alleviated if the introduction of learning autonomy, through self-access learning, is done as a process where the learner is being trained to progressively go from an externally-directed-learning approach to a self-directed learning approach.

#8. La Lectura Rápida en el Desarrollo de la Velocidad y la Compresión en Inglés
Jorge E. Benavides B.
En esta investigación de tipo pre-experimental se determinó y evaluó la incidencia de la aplicación de una técnica de lectura rápida para hacer posible la comprensión en forma directa sin que medie la traducción. fenómeno natural pero de demasiada dependencia en estudiantes de inglés técnico. La aplicación de la lectura rápida guiada permitió observar y determinar cuantitativamente mejorías significativas en cuanto a la velocidad de lectura sin detrimento de la comprensión. El estudio apunta como lo establece la teoría psicolingüística de la lectura a que la velocidad está positivamente correlacionada con la comprensión.

#9. El Computador en el Desarrollo de la Lectura en Inglés
Jorge E. Benavides B.
En esta investigación pre-experimental se proporciona evidencia del efecto del uso de un programa informático de reconstrucción de texto en el campo del aprendizaje de lenguas asistido por computador (ALAC) sobre la velocidad de lectura y el aprendizaje de vocabulario en inglés. Utilizando un grupo de sujetos del programa del programa de Idiomas de la Universidad Mariana de la Ciudad de San Juan de Pasto y trabajando con un programa de reconstrucción de texto durante diez semanas se obtuvieron ganancias significativas en cuanto a la velocidad de lectura, comprensión y el aprendizaje de vocabulario que apuntan hacia la incidencia positiva de uso del computador en actividades de lectura indirecta mediada por la reconstrucción de texto en la velocidad y la comprensión.

#10. ANALYSIS ON THE PREVALENCE AND PERCEIVED CONSEQUENCES OF EARLY MARRIAGE ON SCHOOL ENROLMENT, COMPLETION AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF FEMALE STUDENTS IN SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
MUSAB SHUAIBU, MOHAMMED AYUBA
ABSTRACT This paper ventured on the analysis of the prevalence and perceived consequences of early marriage on school enrollment completion and academic performance of female students in senior secondary schools in the North-East Geo-political zone, Nigeria. The objective of the study is to determine the major effects of early marriage on female youth educational development. Ex-post facto design was used for the study. Three hundred and fifty four (354) females’ students for 2015/2016 session constituted sample respondents for the study. They responded to prevalence and perceived consequences of early marriage questionnaire (PCEMQ) while the sample of female student senior secondary school certificate (SSCE) qualifying examination results for the 2015/2016 session was used for the analysis of student academic achievement in English, Mathematics and Biology. The data were analyzed with the statistical package for social science (SPSS) using t-test of inferential statistics i-e. T-test of dependent and independent sample to...
