Title : Using Data-Driven Language Learning in the Vietnamese EFL Context: Developing an Error-Highlighting System for Academic Writing with Online Corpora
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Data-Driven Learning (DDL) has gained momentum as a pedagogic tool in the EFL context as increased accessibility to technology and software capabilities continue to reveal its potential. One such platform for this is the use of online corpora within language teaching. Whilst literature surrounding utilisation of corpora and concordancing software in the teaching of languages is increasing, focus on their usage within the scope of teaching writing skills remains undeveloped. Using the British Academic Written English Corpus (BAWE) accessed through the website lextutor.com and the platform Google Classroom, the project in focus details the development of an error highlighting and feedback system for academic writing which attempts to mitigate the restrictions and challenges previously found with using corpora pedagogically. The report presents the findings of a pilot study of the system with an upper-immediate Vietnamese high school class studying on an international programme, provides feedback from the students’ usage experience and puts forward recommendations for improvements and areas of further scholarly study on this topic.
