    Initiatives Towards GeronticCALL in China


    【发言摘要】

    According to the 7th national census in 2021, there are over 260 million people aging 60 or beyond. This paper discusses initiatives ChinaCALL takes in assisting this population to participate in active aging programmes. It reports three AI-assisted GeronticCALL initiatives undertaken in the last three years: (1) Multimodal Corpus of Gerontic Discourse (MCGD) with natural language processing as its intrinsic component; (2) Smartphone-based oral-visual journals of daily activities as memory-enhancing and self-energizing strategies; (3) life-course narrative corpus and metaverse-based life-course reconstruction. The trial versions of the three initiatives have been put to test, and research papers have been published (Gu and Zhang, 2023; Liu and Gu 2024; Zhou 2024).

    English in Asia’s Expanding Circle Countries. Is It ELF, EFL or What?


    【发言摘要】

    The distinction Kachru made between countries of the Outer and Expanding Circles was that Outer Circle countries had been colonies of English speaking empires where English played institutional roles and where local varieties of English had developed. In Expanding Circle countries, in contrast, English played no societal role and was restricted to being a school subject. In the ensuing years, however, English has begun to play an increasing number of roles both within Expanding Circle countries themselves and as a lingua franca between people from Expanding Circle countries and elsewhere. In this talk, the increasing roles of English within selected Expanding Circle countries of Asia and between these and Outer and Inner Circle countries will be described and illustrated. The contemporary relevance of the Kachru’s ‘circles’ classification will be discussed and the possibility of developing a model to account for the development of English in Expanding Circle countries questioned.

    Patterns of Vocabulary and Grammar: The Context Matters


    【发言摘要】

    As teachers we know our students need to control both vocabulary and grammar to be successful in academic contexts. In this presentation I will use corpus linguistic research to explore patterns of vocabulary and grammar that go together. I will then examine how these patterns vary across different contexts of use (speaking and writing). This will highlight the importance of register (e.g., context of use and communicative goal), and the importance of the choice of corpora used in research. I will then present example activities and resources that can be used to help teachers be more effective, and that can help our students have more strategies for tackling the important task of learning and controlling vocabulary and grammar with a focus on academic writing and conversation.

    (Re-)Defining Critical Digital Literacy: What Is It, and How Should We Teach It?


    【发言摘要】

    Critical Digital Literacy (CDL) is deictic: it needs to be continually redefined within rapidly evolving technological and cultural contexts. CDL requires an ability to critically assess and evaluate information in an online world that includes not only massive amounts of information, but also misinformation, disinformation, competing ideologies, disguised advertising, predatory journals, ‘echo chambers’, and ‘filter bubbles’. As Coiro (2023) has pointed out, over the past twenty years the Internet has rewritten epistemology: we have moved from ‘Probably true’ to ‘Whose truth?’ to ‘What is truth?’. Not only is information being Balkanised, Internet algorithms are deciding for us which Balkanised country we are to inhabit. In this chaotic information universe, what CDL tools do our students need to acquire, and what role should their teachers play? In this talk I shall highlight key research findings from Europe, the USA, Australia and China into CDL, and share five key pedagogical approaches that have been shown to increase Critical Digital Literacy.

    CALL, Social Justice and a Capability Theory: Potentials and Implications for Research and Praxis


    【发言摘要】

    CALL has become an established field of study within applied linguistics since it emerged over fifty years ago. As a field it has undergone different historical phases as identified by various CALL scholars (e.g., Structural, Communicative and Integrative; Restricted, Open and Integrative). In this historical development process, CALL has been theorised by drawing on multiple disciplines and theories. At the turn of the 21st century, it was theorised by using Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory as it influenced language education then. In 2003, my former late colleague Stephen Bax aptly called the current phase of CALL normalisation or Integrative CALL. This means CALL has become a part of our normal everyday (language learning) life. However, the CALL scholarship appears to have focused on its affordances and efficacies until Covid-19 paralysed the world in 2020 when attention was suddenly turned to access and equity issues in CALL. As a result, CALL scholarship has just taken a critical turn which examines power, privilege, equity, coloniality and social justice in CALL through different Critical Theories. In this talk, having briefly historicised CALL, I will propose and discuss how a capability theory developed by economist Amartya Sen provides us with tools to evaluate CALL regarding social justice from a novel angle. Specifically, I will discuss expansion of capabilities through CALL for social justice and conclude with some implications for research and praxis.

    Teaching and Learning Languages Online After the Pandemic with Generative AI Technologies


    【发言摘要】

    Teaching and learning languages online have become more widely accepted after the pandemic. This session discusses some trends in the practice and study of online language teaching and learning. In addition, represented by OpenAI's ChatGPT, generative AI technologies have received unprecedented global attention since November 2022 and remain a heated topic across professions including education. This session will examine opportunities and challenges brought by these disruptive technologies to language teaching and learning with examples in different languages. Suggestions for when and how to use these technologies appropriately and effectively in language teaching and learning, particularly in online environments, will also be provided, drawing upon relevant research and practice.

    Three Languages, One Framework: Understanding Hong Kong's Trilingual Education for Global Insights


    【发言摘要】

    In the multilingual landscape of Hong Kong, linguistic diversity flourishes with three principal languages: Cantonese, the vernacular of the majority; English, the language of international prestige; and Putonghua, the national tongue of China. Cantonese was traditionally the language of instruction in primary schools, with secondary schools split between English and Cantonese instruction. Post-1997, the "biliterate and trilingual" policy aimed to balance these languages, aiming for proficiency in written English and Chinese, as well as spoken English, Cantonese, and Putonghua. However, schools lack clear guidance on implementing this policy. Our research, using surveys, interviews, classroom observations, and teacher feedback, seeks to clarify how trilingual education is being applied. We will share key insights, particularly regarding the choice of Medium of Instruction (MoI) and the use of code-mixing and code-switching in education. Our findings aim to direct Hong Kong schools to better trilingual education methods and to contribute to the global understanding of multilingual education.
