Introduction to second language learning and technology Language: English Description: Introduction on the use of technology in second language learning; pros and cons of specific new applications and established technologies; project-based and oriented; developing multilingual/multicultural understanding through technology. Includes an emphasis on instruction in writing. The course supports students' awareness and understanding of the role of technology for second language learning and use in and for the 21stcentury. In a globalized world, two of the most critical skills for having an edge are additional language skills and technology literacies. This course will help students systematically explore a wide range of emerging technologies for second language learning and use. For assessing the success of learning, students will create projects to explore how learning technologies can augment one’s capacity for learning a second language (and developing associated cultural understanding). Projects that can have an impact on real-world problems through involving and building communities (both local and international) are strongly encouraged. The course is relevant to students of second language studies, arts, sciences, communications, business or any majors who are interested in gaining and cultivating a multilingual and multicultural worldview.
