Title : Language teacher agency in CALL: Local practices, virtual spaces and global forces
Type : Keynote (50 minutes)
Category : Keynote speech
Abstract : Technology and globalization have transformed how we communicate and how we use language in professional, personal, educational and public domains. For language teachers these ongoing changes raise questions about what they do in their classrooms and how they respond to policy and curricular initiatives in terms of CALL. These changes also raise fundamental questions for our understanding of language learning and teaching in the digital age: how do teachers choose to act in using technology? how have new tools transformed their practices? how do they interpret and use the CALL experiences they encounter? In this talk using a wide range of recent examples I will show how the concept of agency allows us to gain insight into not only the realities of CALL practice but also the ways in which teachers seek to bring together local practices, virtual spaces and global forces within their CALL classrooms.
