The 1st APSCE International Conference on Future Language Learning 2022

 

The 1st APSCE International Conference on Future Language Learning (ICFULL) organised by the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE) online provides a platform for academics and researchers from transdisciplinary areas, including cognitive neural scientists, linguistic researchers, pedagogical designers, theorists of language learning as well as practitioners in various language learning arenas in the world to share and exchange ideas to strengthen research, theories and practice, and explore possibilities for advancing future language learning. The conference program includes keynotes, paper presentations and panelists. All the accepted papers in the conference will be published in ISBN-coded proceedings.

 

Theme: Future Language Learning

Education is being revolutionized in the digital age. Language learning has no exception. The rapid development of artificial intelligence has speed up the transformation of language pedagogical practices. Further, language learning has been shifted from face-to-face to online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has given rise to radical changes of the learning culture. What is the future of language learning in the fast-changing, post-pandemic world leveraged by emerging technologies poses expectations, interest and concerns from many scholars in the field of technology-enhanced language learning. Against this background, “Asia Pacific Society of Computers in Education” (APSCE) initiated its first conference with the theme of “International Conference of Future Language Learning (ICFULL)”.

The conference aims to involve scholars, practitioners and researchers to share and exchange their research findings in exploring the potential that cutting-edge technologies can provide for language pedagogical practices in terms of AI-supported language learning, personalised / adaptive learning, digital game-based learning, technology-supported self-directed learning, learning analytics in language learning, assessment with emerging technologies, etc.; looking into emerging language learning theories, pedagogies, research methods and professional development models; and addressing ethical issues caused by new technologies in language education in an attempt to shed light on future language learning.

Title of Speech:
The future of CALL research

After 40 years in the field, Jozef Colpaert will try to formulate his vision for the future of CALL Research, as a linguist, language teacher, designer, researcher, journal editor and conference organizer. Starting points for his keynote are frequently asked questions such as: Has the term CALL become obsolete? Is there a dedicated research method for language learning? How to cope with the multidisciplinarity problem in CALL? His first point will be that CALL should be seen as a transdisciplinary activity. Transdisciplinarity is defined as the “ontological specification of knowledge constructs on a higher, boundary-transcending, level of abstraction”. CALL is not a subdiscipline among so many others, but an overarching discipline where new concepts and methods are built to bring related disciplines together. One of the biggest challenges in this regard is pervasive yet persuasive terminology. Jozef Colpaert will show how and why terms such as flipped classrooms, blended learning, digital skills, virtual exchanges and artificial intelligence are poorly defined and put language teachers under pressure. A second challenge in CALL research lies at the level of research methods: engineering and design are still not recognized as fully-fledged research methods. The role of scholarly journals is to encourage dedicated research methods such as design, promote accurate and substantiated terminology, intensify international exchanges and support authors in publishing the article they deserve. Jozef Colpaert will conclude by stating that we may have to look for a better acronym for CALL, but that the future of CALL research looks promising.


Title of Speech:
Technology Enhanced Seamless Language Learning Environment

The breakthrough of IT technology over the decades has accelerated the evolutionary change in teaching/learning methodologies. Among them, it is noteworthy that the proliferation of smartphones has brought about a new learning environment called seamless learning. Various learning systems with cutting edge technologies such as learning analytics, virtual reality and augmented reality have been developed to implement this new learning environment. Seamless learning has been drawn researchers' attention mainly because it is expected to contribute to bridging in-class learning with out-of-class learning. Another reason is that it could be the key to solve the lack of in-class learning time. This derives from that fact that in-class learning time is overwhelmingly insufficient especially in the field of second language learning. This talk undertakes a review of past literature, provides a clear understanding of seamless learning, and explores 'best fit' between organization needs and system functionalities in the context of seamless language learning environment.
