Abstract

This study examines the motivation factors among ESL students in Asia and K-12 students in the United States. Interestingly, there are more similarities than differences in the motivation factors in both groups of students. The main factors that motivate students in participating in network learning are: community, learning, literacy & technology, and communication. ESL students enjoy practicing English through networked learning environment and American students find it beneficial to enhance global cultural understanding through ACA projects. Collaboration projects that are based on the mutual interest between the native speakers and ESL students are the key to successful partnership.
