Technology and the Changing Role of the Teacher and Learner

Athabasca University

Agnieszka Palalas, Keynote Rm DN301 Saturday 5:20 pm - 6:20 pm

Digital technologies have transformed language and language learning as well as the context of language learning. With the consequential pedagogical shifts, the identities and roles of language teachers and learners also transform. The keynote addresses how the new digital technologies impact the practice of foreign and second language learning and how this affects the roles of the teacher and learner, particularly in the mobile and blended language learning setting.

The relationship between language, pedagogy, and digital technologies has been steadily changing how we communicate, connect, share, and socialize. Digital technologies have transformed language and language learning as well as the context of language usage and learning. With the consequential pedagogical shifts, the identities and roles of language teachers and learners also transform.

Digital technologies offer increasingly powerful language performance supports as well as novel educational tools and methods in newfound environments, which potentially augments language practice through exposure to real-life language and communicative situations. Mobile and blended language learning approaches expand the contextual and interactional dimensions of language practice and use. This might call for a shift toward pedagogy that allows for the selection of the right approach for the right outcome and context, for learners and learning, often resulting in a “mash-up” of pedagogical approaches. More innovative constructivist, collaborative, learner-centered instruction leads to new learning-teaching relationships that may require stronger self-directed learning and metacognitive skills as well as time management skills.

Despite all these changes, the role of teachers remains important. In this era of more learner-centred and participatory approaches to pedagogy, learners still need the guidance of subject matter experts and teachers who can direct them to valid content and the optimal learning strategies for their particular needs.

The keynote addresses how the new digital technologies impact the practice of foreign and second language learning and how this affects the roles of the teacher and learner, particularly in the mobile and blended language learning setting.

CALL Integration into EFL: Successes and Challenges over the Years

Ritsumeikan University

Kazunori Nozawa, Plenary Rm DN301 Sunday 11:20 am - 12:20 pm

ICTs have been promoted as powerful tools for educational change and reform. This plenary focuses on the effective use of ICTs by overviewing the benefits of ICT use and the ways by which different ICTs have been used at one Japanese university. It addresses the four issues (effectiveness, cost, equity, and sustainability) and five key challenges (educational policy and planning, infrastructure, software and/or courseware, language and content, and financing).

Changes in the pattern of globalization and Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) have accelerated over the past thirty years. The emergence of such changes has serious implications for the goals of educational institutions. Schools cannot remain as mere venues for the transmission of a prescribed set of information from teachers to students, over a fixed course period. Instead, schools must promote “learning to learn.” As the sociologist, writer, and futurist, Alvin Toffler, says, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

ICTs have been promoted as potentially powerful enabling tools for educational change and reform. When used appropriately, different ICTs help expand access to education, strengthen the relevance of education to the increasingly digital workplace, and raise educational quality by helping make teaching and learning into an engaging, active process connected to real life. However, full realization of the potential educational benefits of ICTs is not a given. This plenary focuses on the appropriate and effective use of ICTs in one Japanese university by first providing a brief overview of the benefits of ICT use and the ways by which different ICTs have been used in the university thus far. Second, it addresses the four broad issues (effectiveness, cost, equity, and sustainability) in the use of ICTs in education. The plenary concludes with a discussion of five key challenges (educational policy and planning, infrastructure, software and/or courseware, language and content, and financing).
