FLEAT VI: Identities, Communities, and Technologies in Global Environments

The International Association for Language Learning Technology (IALLT) and the Japan Association for Language Education & Technology (J-LET) are pleased to announce our sixth joint Foreign Language Education and Technology Conference (FLEAT VI), to be held at Harvard University, August 12-15, 2015.


The theme for FLEAT VI is “Identities, Communities, and Technologies in Global Environments”. New technologies are erasing the boundaries between practitioners of languages and cultures across the world, and are providing learners and teachers opportunities to build communities of interest and engagement within and outside the language classroom. Students are engaged as never before in using social networks to transcend geography. Access to authentic materials enables students to research and develop informed perspectives on the lives of others. Distance and hybrid approaches to instruction call into question the very notions of classroom and community, and challenge us to rethink the possibilities for building communities around language and culture instruction outside the comforting presence of physical “place”.

Click here to submit a proposal by December 31, 2014.  The organizers welcome 300-word abstracts on the following suggested areas of interest, equally focused in the fields of language and culture pedagogy, instructional methods involving the innovative application of technologies, language technologies in the K-12 space, and language technology center development and administration.
