Title: "Utilizing Emerging Technologies and Social Media to Enhance EFL Learning"

Summary (for the conference program):

This symposium examines the potential of emerging technologies -- including Social Media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter), hand-held devices (smart phones, iPods, iPads), and iBooks -- to approach ubiquitous language learning. Case studies focusing on higher education in Japan show how these communication technologies could improve language acquisition in EFL and ESL contexts.
