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.

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.

Abstract:

This symposium proposes to examine the impact and potential of communication technologies in learning EFL. Case studies focusing on higher education in Japan show how mobile technologies and social media could improve language acquisition in Asian EFL contexts and beyond. Teaching with sound pedagogies and communication technologies, accessed by computers and hand-held devices, can bring about better outcomes through ubiquitous language learning. Impacts can span from better language comprehension to active involvement in learning communities generated in cyberspace. This symposium will thus detail how these emerging technologies are utilized to reform EFL classroom practices. The international presenters, based at four different universities, will theoretically and practically examine factors for successful EFL learning with emerging technologies. M-learning can generate contexts for active learning, with learners as agents and creators rather than spectators or recipients of knowledge. We will particularly examine a) how to implement m-learning in institutional settings, b) what makes learners willingly use mobile devices and become involved in social contexts they themselves generate, and c) how teachers can help learners with scaffolding to develop agency as individuals who voluntarily engage with the social context. Among the emerging technologies demonstrated are Social Media, such as Facebook and Twitter, media players like iPods, tablet computers like iPads, iBooks Author for interactive, illustrated, multimedia artifacts that students can also create, and blended e-learning using a content management system and smart phones for m-learning. These studies will shed light on motivational attitudes towards these technologies for language learning, and measure how these tools have impacted L2 acquisition. Presenters will conclude with suggestions and welcome questions on how emerging technologies can be more effectively used in teaching EFL, ESL, and communication.

Individual Presentation Titles and Summaries (within 50 words)

Professor Takeshi Sato, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology
"Analyzing Successful Mobile Learning for EFL"

Factors for successful mobile-based EFL learning are examined from three perspectives: how mobile learning is implemented in educational institutions; how teachers scaffold learners to help them develop agency as individuals using this technology; and what makes learners willingly use mobile devices and become involved in contexts they themselves generate.

Associate Professor Stephen Lambacher, Aoyama Gakuin University
"Using Social Media to Enhance Second Language Learning"

Social media is gaining popularity among educators as a tool to boost learning in and out of the classroom. After reviewing how social media is being used in educational settings around the world, the presenter reports on how he’s using Facebook to improve the English skills of his Japanese undergraduates.

Professor Kazunori Nozawa, Ritsumeikan University
"Project-Based EFL Learning through e-Book and Video Creation"

Technology-Enhanced Language Learning implemented since 1998 is augmented by Project-Based Learning since 2012, with the theoretical background and one case reported in this presentation. EFL students chose to create either an interactive eBook as an individual project using iBooks Author or a promotional video as a small-group project using iMovie.

Professor Steve McCarty, Osaka Jogakuin University
"Ubiquitous Language Learning from Mobile Internet to iPod to iPad"

Ubiquitous language learning has progressed from mobile phone Websites in 2000. From 2004, first in the world, all incoming Osaka Jogakuin University students received an iPod stocked with faculty-created listening materials. Podcasting student-generated performances was an "effective practice." Since 2012, students use an iPad with Wi-fi and faculty-made interactive e-books.

Professor Hiroyuki Obari, Aoyama Gakuin University
"A Blended Environment with m-Learning: Impact on EFL Skills"

A year-long study sought to ascertain whether or not a blended learning environment incorporating m-learning could help Japanese undergraduates improve their English skills. Various emerging technologies and materials will be demonstrated, along with several empirical studies indicating their effect in improving students’ CASEC and TOEIC scores.

First hybrid reality conference event based in Japan

Keynote_movie_1.jpg

2007年3月24日、名古屋商科大学の大学院で、ポッドキャスティングや携帯学習 (click on the last link below for the English) に関する学会が行われました。Web2.0などに関する初めの基調講演は、同時にSecond Lifeというバーチャルリアリティによる3次元のワールドで行われました。テキストチャット、ボイスでも可能で、アバターという自分の代表(元梵語から、権現のような意味)がお辞儀などのジェスチャー、飛ぶことも出来ます。今回は、3次元の環境の中でPPTのプレゼンテーションを行い、それとのインタラクションを見せています。会場のスクリーン2つで、WinもMacを同時に操作し、それぞれプロジェクトし、ある意味でこの学会では、日本初のハイブリッドリアリティによるイベントが行われました。色々な観点から、3次元の環境の内外で取られた写真やYouTubeのようなビデオがウェブ上で保存されているので、どうぞご覧ください。写真やスクリーンショット集は: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=djszdhm_31d9vstb

First hybrid reality conference event based in Japan

On March 24th at the NUCB Graduate School in Nagoya there was a conference: "Wireless Ready: Podcasting Education and Mobile Assisted Language Learning." The opening keynote address was "Web 2.0 Technologies and iPods for Research and Mobility." That hour (only) was held simulaneously at EduNation in the Second Life 3D virtual world. The conference room had two screens, so the .ppt presentation was projected onto one with a PC and and a Mac was used for Second Life and the voice client Ventrilo, which worked to an extent. During the presentation, occasionally the room speakers would announce the entry or departure of participants in other countries, Europe and the Americas, giving an amusing air of spontaneous unpredictability, not knowing when another world would intrude upon this one. Videos were taken both from within Second Life, showing a participant's perspective, and from the conference audience, which, along with various screen shots and photos, like Kurosawa's "Rashomon" show multiple perspectives on the same event. For photos and screen shots of an avatar interacting with the .ppt presentation in Second life, see: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=djszdhm_31d9vstb
For interesting videos, particularly of the presenter's avatar flying, see Video 1, etc., at the Conference site: http://wirelessready.nucba.ac.jp
