Title : Collecting data for research in CALL
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

An increasing number of language educators would like to conduct CALL research projects, or they may need to collect data from language learners for a variety of other purposes. The presenter will demonstrate several technology applications that are used to collect data from learners in foreign language courses at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Examples of the collected data will be shown. The applications were developed by the faculty and graduate students at CMU.


Linguistic output in the form of text, audio, and video files can be saved, and it is also possible to record learner choices and responses to survey questions. The possibilities for data collection will be discussed in various potential scenarios in which a language instructor might work. Most of the techniques can be used for language assessment as well as for CALL research.


In addition, the presenter will discuss plans to gain new insights into second language acquisition by means of virtual and augmented reality applications in the new Askwith Kenner Global Languages and Cultures Room, a new space which offers students and the community an immersive, interactive language classroom and learning space.
