While there have been many studies examining the effect of Web 2.0 tools on the language learning process, this book makes a significant contribution in terms of the specific focus on learner autonomy, the variety of platforms researched, and the inclusion of a chapter with an underutilized format in such edited volumes (explained below). Especially considering its relatively modest price in these days when edited educational texts are all too often out of reach for most academics, this book should be a welcome addition to the library of those focused on technology and language learning. The book is divided into nine chapters and is arranged into six general themes, including the following: A framework for thinking about language learning and teaching (Chapter 2); Learner autonomy: From constraints to affordances (Chapter 3); Learner autonomy and metacognition (Chapters 4 and 5); Learner autonomy in social media (Chapters 6 and 7); Learner autonomy: From object-regulation to self-regulation (Chapter 8); Learner autonomy and informal learning: Exchange value and use value (Chapter 9).
