Presenter  Title  Summary  Links 
Emeline Beck, University of Wisconsin - Madison, USA   Elementary Students Create Bilingual Digital Stories   Recent trends in literature point to the importance of allowing language learners to use all their resources for meaning-making as they learn. In this presentation, I share my research and findings about how technology and a pedagogy of translanguaging supported the language and content learning of bilingual elementary students.    
Carrie Bach, University of Hawaii - Manoa, USA  Action Research of Facebook and Canva for Extensive Reading   This presentation reports on an action research study integrating Facebook and Canva in Extensive Reading. While Facebook alone did not increase students' interest in reading, creating book reviews on Canva then posting the creations on Facebook helped create a reading community that increased students' desire to read in English.    
Seyed Abdollah Shahrokni, Washington State University, USA   Second Language Socialization in a Massively Multi-player Online Game  This doctoral dissertation explores how non-native English speakers in an MMOG community acquire membership, legitimacy, and communicative competence in an MMOG, forming the identity of a competent member of their community.   Slideshow
